A Clean Slate

Most businesses have a December 31st year end. That means many people just tallied last year’s results. It’s likely some of you are glad to have last year behind you. While others, who had a good year, are now wondering how to perform even better this coming year.

Some people like dwelling on the past, while others like looking toward the future. Both views make it easy to forget about the present. God gives us a clean slate eve...

Then God decided to test our commitment. Soon thereafter, Kathy quit her nursing job to care for our son. Increasing our giving certainly didn’t make sense.

The Case for Unconventional Business

When we apply Barna’s research, out of 155 million people now in the workforce, only 8 million approach life with a biblical worldview.
