Goal Achieving or Tension Relieving

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 11, 2011

Everything we do has purpose. Maslow would say the first priority of every human being is survival. So our motive for dodging the oncoming car, our motive for eating when we’re hungry, our desire for sleep…all come from our innate drive to survive. But after you get past that most basic motive, what drives our…

God doesn’t do multiple choice…

There’s a long-running debate among a few of my friends. We pretty much agree that God revealed His moral will for us through the Scriptures. And that He keeps His sovereign will to himself. We’ll have to wait ‘til heaven to understand all He was doing as we lived our lives here on earth. But…

A Life of Meaning

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 3, 2011

A friend is contemplating this question. How do I live a life of meaning? There’s been a lot written about purpose, but less about meaning. Let’s define it first… Meaning  :  “implied or explicit significance” We looked at three choices. 1. Self actualization – becoming all God intended you to be.  Becoming a value-adding participant…

Sacred Selfishness

My CFO used to say, “There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind of people who say there are two kinds of people, and those who don’t.”  I guess I’m the former.  I believe there really are two kinds of people: those who are focused on themselves and those who care about…

So what is faith anyway?

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 28, 2011

We’re Christians because we have faith in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That seems sort of easy to have faith in when it was 2000 years ago and didn’t cause us any personal pain. What’s hard is to have faith when God allows a man to get hit by a car while…

Years ago, I read where Patrick Morley was visiting with an elderly “saint-of-a-woman” he knew. He wanted to pose a question only a saint could answer, so he asked her to explain Romans 8:28.  “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called…

There are guys who want to grow and guys who don’t seem to care.  There are learners, whom I call “heat seekers,” and then there are those who think “Hey, I’m just the way I am…take it or leave it.” (P.S. if you’re the “take me or leave me” kind of guy, don’t be surprised…

Why Guys Like Golf

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 18, 2011

I had an epiphany today. I think I figured something out. Guys talk about how tough the game of golf is…..how frustrating…how unforgiving….how you can never quite conquer it…never master it. In fact, I’ve never ever heard a man say “”Yeah, I figured golf out”. Never. But men keep going back. And back. And back….

My Least Favorite Word… “deserve”

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 13, 2011

There are few words in the English language that stop me cold. Hearing the Lord’s name used in vain still does it. But about the only other word that has same effect is the word “deserve.”  Every time I hear it, whether on t.v. or from a close personal friend, it makes me want to…

What’s Down In The Well

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 10, 2011

What’s down in the well comes up in the bucket. One of my young executives taught me a principle years ago that I’ve never forgotten. It was cathartic for me as a leader….and as a husband. He said, “When something one of your employees does bothers you, confront them with it before that day ends….
