True, Kind, and Necessary

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 29, 2018

This time of year, everybody’s working on something. Losing weight, getting in shape, making annual plans, cleaning out, organizing . . . something. I’ve been trying to ‘renew my mind’ by replacing negative thoughts with good, positive ones. I started with this list of adjectives from Philippians 4:8, where He’s telling me to choose ….

What’s the Source of Your Success?

Ok. Here’s a tough one for you . . . If you were to come into a bunch of money, would the people who know you be genuinely happy for you? Or this one . . . If you were to be honored with an award, like “Employer of the Year,” would your employees be…

Before Honor is Humility

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 13, 2017

When people strive to ‘be somebody,’ they’re often trying to be somebody else. But look around at the people you admire most and you’ll find humility. Humility may be the most revered character trait from God’s perspective. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven,” said Jesus. So how do…

A Crucified Man Can Only Face Forward

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 2, 2017

Everybody has a past. Things we would do different if given the chance. Screw-ups that hurt ourselves and others. We bear the wounds of parents who didn’t love us well, teachers who vilified us, coaches who belittled us, bosses who disrespected us, customers who fired us, and friends who betrayed us. The past can be…

Respect for Character

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 17, 2016

Men need respect. They’ll go to school and keep going to school . . . degree after degree seeking respect from academia. They’ll work their butts off to be respected at work. They’ll buy things they can’t afford trying to be respected by their neighbors and friends. They’ll run marathons and IRONMAN races to be…

Disruption

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 5, 2016

People change very little unless they’re disrupted; unless something or someone shakes up their homeostasis. We may have ideas . . . even plans, but we rarely move until we’re stimulated. As my friend John says, “it’s not the light . . . it’s the heat that moves us!” One way disruption comes is when…

I played basketball as a kid. I was always good enough to make the team but not good enough to play much. So the highlight of my basketball ‘career’ was the warm-up time before the games . . .you know . . . when all the players get in two lines; one line shoots lay…

The Silence of the Lie

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 1, 2013

Telling the truth is one of the lynchpins of character. There are 54 verses in the Bible about lying. Proverbs 12:22 is one of the best…  The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy. “Lying lips”. That’s straight up. ‘Speaking’ something that isn’t true. Would apply to ‘writing’ something that isn’t…
