Believers are to run life’s race for Christ, who taught us to love God with all our being as the first and greatest commandment.

When a man or woman believes in Christ, many deep-seated desires begin to change. We learn to become givers rather than takers. God wants us to see our money as a trust to manage, not a possession to squander.
April 15, 2014
Believers in the race of life need to come to grips with money. Many of us grip our pocketbooks until our knuckles turn white. But God wants to show us the joy of generosity.
April 14, 2014
Christians running the race of life frequently get tripped up by matters of money. Whose money is it really? Is it mine to do with as I please, or am I just taking care of it for someone else? Christ had much to say about money, which we will learn about shortly.

For every Olympic track star, there are thousands of runners who will never make the team. Yet that is no reason to give up. Many believers with few talents approach life with a clenched fist rather than an open hand.
April 10, 2014
Although we are not equal in abilities, we are equal in our obligation to use our abilities wisely. In Bible times, a talent was a large sum of money. Today it signifies any giftedness. Either way, the parable of the talents shows us how to manage what we have well.

We are all given gifts and abilities. It is not about how many we have, but how we use them that determines the outcome of our lives. Rather than complain about what we don’t have, let’s focus today on how to best use what we’ve been given.
April 8, 2014
As believers, how we use our time determines our effectiveness for God. At the end of this life, we will be judged by our deeds, deeds that took place as the clock ticked off the minutes, days, and years.
April 7, 2014
For the Christian, time is a vital, non-renewable resource. Like a coin, it can only be spent once. Why not invest the next fifteen minutes learning how to best use your time?
April 4, 2014
When running life’s race, the clock is relentless. Once gone, time cannot be reclaimed. The Bible teaches believers to be “redeeming the time, for the days are evil.” Time must be used wisely every day.
