James 3:1 says that “we shall receive stricter judgement”. Often people assume “we” is referring to teachers. But what if it’s referring to all Christians?
When it appears in the Bible, “speaking the truth in love” (literally “truthing in love”) means far more than just “saying true things in a charitable way”.

How much of your life is taken up by the quest for security? Jesus has been giving people deep and lasting security, for two thousand years and counting.

How do I integrate all the stuff from my inboxes into my trusted system? I need to create tasks that work. Each task needs certain essential elements.
This post is about a core habit that helps me to reduce everyday stress. This involves identifying all my inboxes in life, and daily emptying them.
