Greater Than Me
We sometimes joke that the world (or work, or school, or church, etc.) would be great if it weren’t for all the people. We’ve all seen how people can be either a blessing or a burden. Recognizing that, our challenge as followers of Jesus is—with His help, and in His name—to be life-givers, rather than life-suckers.
To follow Jesus is to value people.

Personal Bible Study Tips
Bible reading is a crucial part of knowing God and living for Him. We read scripture not just to learn facts or find great quotes, but to internalize it to the point that it guides our thoughts, attitudes, and actions. The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:16-17: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” God’s Word is designed to tell us the truth; confront our sin; show us what’s right; and equip us to live for God. We cannot be the people God calls us to be without regular intake of scripture. To make personal Bible reading a habit, we have to develop a plan. Here are a few practical ideas to help you do that.
