It’s not a stretch to say that we are currently living at the most comfortable time in history, but at what cost? This instant society has a shadow side. How do we ever achieve greatness or even know what greatness looks like if everything is easy?
We are afraid of not having enough — enough for today, for tomorrow, for retirement, for our children. Yet the surprising truth is that we actually have more when we’re generous. Generosity brings joy not just the recipient, but to the giver as well.
Did you know that gratitude can improve not only your happiness, but also your resilience, relationships, and health? We were made for gratitude, and we thrive when we practice it.
Our country, our community, our families, and especially our children have a loneliness problem. There is only one way to escape the loneliness trap, and that is forgiveness. When forgiveness stops, community stops, but when forgiveness thrives, community thrives.
Acceptance is not defeat or resignation. Rather, acceptance is seeing the sober truth of your situation, offering it to God, and working together with God and others for the transformation of your world and the world as a whole.
