    When we feel insecure, we back off from situations. But when the Holy Spirit comes, there is passion, there is witness.

    Is everybody cool? Is everybody cool? I am not referring to the temperature in the building, but to the climate in your soul! Are you cool? “Cool” is an all-purpose word, used to describe a certain attitude. Instead of defining it, let me illustrate it. I was attending a repast at a family ...read more

    Even if you cannot hear what someone is saying with his lips, you can often read his body language. The words may not be clear, but the body language may be eloquent. What is body language?

    based on 50 ratings
     | 3,068 views

    Our work is different when we are supervised than when we are not, but our character and commitment are measured thereby. We can be Matthias, who accepted an assignment he did not seek, with joy; or Joseph Justus, who failed to get that same assignment,

    When you can see your supervisor, you work. When you cannot see him, your work style is likely to slow down. The difference between those two things is the measure of your character and your commitment. When you can see your supervisor, you work diligently. You work hard; you get ...read more
