Greed…

In the movie, “Wall Street,” the main character told us that “greed is good.” By definition, greed means a selfish desire for wealth and power. There is nothing wrong with wealth and power until you throw selfishness into the mix. Keep your motives true and noble, and should you start feeling selfish, give away what you have accumulated.

Lists…

We make grocery lists, to-do lists, and lists to remind us of the errands we have to accomplish. I keeps another list: it’s a list of people I want to interview for my podcast. It’s a list of people I want to have dinner with. A list of people whose story I want to know better. And I reach out to the people on the list, trying to engage. And I refuse to give up, putting God in the driver’s seat to connect us. Make your own list. And keep going…

Memorial Day…

Memorial Day is a Remembrance Day established in 1868 that officially became a holiday in 1971. We are called to remember the brave men and women who died while serving our country in the military. At 3:00 p.m. local time, we are asked to observe a moment of silence in remembrance of them for their dedication and service to the United States. We have freedoms here in America that others don’t have. What some take for granted others cherish. It is because of our freedom that people can peaceably protest or fail to stand for the National Anthem. Whether we agree with these things or not isn’t the point. We have the freedom to choose.

So however you are spending the day, with family and friends, barbecuing or on the lake, I encourage you to take a moment at 3:00 to pause and reflect. We must #neverforget…

Entitlement…

Entitlement means you think you deserve something for just showing up. Life doesn’t work that way. Plus, we only place value in what we earn
