Fads and Bubbles

One of the earliest lessons I learned in business was the impact of buying into a fad. In 1981, Rent-a-Wreck determined that offering used cars for rent instead of new cars could be franchised across the country.

With the desire to be my own boss and desperate to leave public accounting, used car rentals seemed like a ground floor opportunity for me. A year later, I realized that renting used cars was a fad tha...

HINDSIGHT

Sometimes we just don't see God coming. We don't realize that He desires to meet with us, that He wants to be a part of every aspect of our lives. We've put Him in a box instead, and imagined Him to be much smaller than He is. And when He comes close, we're largely unaware.

Moses experienced the presence of God in some pretty spectacular ways. Once he asked God to show him His glory, but God warned Moses that what he a...

Genesis 3:4-6

“But the serpent said to the woman, ‘You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’ So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.&...

Overblown Importance

My son-in-law, Brian, met with a mutual friend who previously had been CFO of a well-known publicly traded company. When I asked Brian how his meeting went Brian replied, “He shared an idea with me that I will never forget. ‘You are never as important as you think.’”

For an older wiser businessman of the stature of this former CFO to share this insight with Brian was profound ...

THE SIN OF PARTIALITY

Isn't it good that you and I don't decide who is "worth saving?" We're too easily deceived by appearances. We may think the rich, profane executive who has the world by the tail would make a dynamite Christian if he were "cleaned up," but judge the down-and-out derelict as a more likely candidate for prison. Years ago a play called "Tobacco Road" caused a stir at its Atlanta, Georgia premier because those in the audience were offended by its main c...

Genesis 3:2-5

“And the woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’’ But the serpent said to the woman, ‘You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’”...
