During conflicts, a boss in the middle must know when to say “time-out”. There’s a point when arguing your point (even if you’re right) only works to further aggravate the situation. There are many other benefits to discontinuing an argument.
So, I took a break from blogging for a bit. No reason. Just took a break. At first I felt a little guilty, like the people following me would be angry or unfollow me because I wasn’t writing every few days. Like it’s all about me. I was trying to figure out how to apologize, then I realized something…
This isn’t one of those bible verses that are hard to understand or easily taken out of context.
Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
It’s the old classic, “don’t worry” verse. But, there’s more to it. As a boss in the middle of this crazy world, it’s essential that you understand this truth.
As a boss in the middle of this crazy world, we are always focused on something. Sometimes it’s exactly what we should focus on, sometimes it’s not. But we are always focused. Basically, we need to focus, on what we focus on. I am purposely saying the word “focus” a lot. It should be a focal point. Read on for my perspective of proper and improper focus.
I’m seeking topics. If you have a question about something relating to managing yourself “in the middle” of this crazy world, drop me a line in the comments or shoot me an email at email@example.com.
I’ve got experience to offer in life, love, leadership, marriage, parenthood, sex, work, business, writing tips, etc…
If I don’t know the answer, I won’t pretend I do. I may have to do some research and get back to you, but that will only help me grow. So please, ask anything.
I use the Holy Bible as my base. Hopefully, the content of this website can help people become the best godly version of themselves. It’s already helping me be honest in areas that were once hidden and broaden my bible study in order to provide helpful content.
I truly pray that this will bless many lives. No topic is off limits.
More to come soon on that…
Thanks to all of you who have supported me and provided feedback. Keep it coming!
Came across this verse as I was reading tonight. I wanted to write an article that was short and spiritual. Something like this:
It is a very rare thing for me to make promises. I simply don’t want to break them. I don’t want my words to be taken lightly. I say something and I’m sincere about it. As a boss in the middle, we should all follow this model.
That, however, is an irresponsible and untrue representation of the truth. Let me explain who I really am and what I learned tonight.
Proverbs 27:17 states that as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Sharpening others requires us to use our influence. With this influence comes great responsibility. We should always be aware of what we are sharpening.
When do you stop trusting God? That was a question posed to my group in a recent bible study. Most people in the group thought about dark times in their life. Times when they were at a real low. A loved on may have died, they lost an important job, their family was actively dysfunctional or some other unfortunate event shook their faith. My answer was different. I never had the experience of not trusting God in bad times. I never blamed God for my problems. I stop trusting God, when things are really good.
So, you had a rough day. Why smile?
Some people say a little fear is good because it keeps you out of harms way. Our innate, natural need to stay unharmed and healthy, keeps us from jumping off a bridge or driving our car at maximum speed. Fear of pain keeps us out of trouble for sure, but there are times in our life, when we allow fear to have too much freedom. See what fear does if left unchecked and what you can do about it.
