A Dime a Day (Part 2): Bitter or Better?

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 21, 2011

Let’s focus on the person who was getting “a dime a day”, but the dimes stopped. How will he respond? Will he be grateful for the gifts he received for that time? Will he be a better person for having been helped….be motivated to pay it forward and give others “a dime a day” in…

A dime a day

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 16, 2011

One of my mentors credited his grandfather with this principle…. “Give a man a dime a day for 30 days – then stop. He’ll hate you for the rest of your life.” He was right. When we see someone with a need and we meet it, we feel good about ourselves. And after all, aren’t we…

Goal Achieving or Tension Relieving

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…

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…

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….
