All the money in the world can’t buy us peace and contentment. It can make our life easier, but it can’t buy happiness.
There will be days, maybe even today, when you’ll have the opportunity to decide between taking responsibility for something or just wallowing in the feeling that nothing will ever change and you can’t catch a break.
Watch this and encourage yourself before you face the next situation:

Did you know that the Bible talks about how to get promoted at work, how to be an honorable employee, and how to keep improving at your God-given gift?
It does. Whether you’re an employee or an employer, this will help you better understand the biblical principles of work.
In Matthew 25, Jesus relays the story of three servants who were each given a specific amount of money by their employer to watch over until he returned from a trip.

For many of us, when we were dating, it seemed like we had endless hours to spend together.
Fast forward 5, 10, 20 years or more of marriage and it can be difficult to find where our “dating time” went.
Disorganization causes us to spend time doing things we have to do versus things we would like to do. Work is a part of life, but we can improve the quality of our lives and relationships by putting some effort into getting things put in order. Continue reading…
