What are our values? Our values are our core beliefs that shape everything we do in life. There are a lot of people today who say, "It really doesn't matter what you believe," but that's just not true. It does matter what you believe.

Overcome Your Fear of Confrontation and Conflict

fearofconflict

Nobody likes conflict. Well, no healthy person that is. Many of us are genuinely afraid of conflict. The fear of conflict is as old as Adam and Eve.

If you've got a well and the well has bad water, fixing the pump is not going to help what's in the well. That's the problem with a lot of self-help books. They tell you how to fix the pump, but they don't know how to tell you how to fix the water that's in the well. Until you fix that, things aren't going to get better for you. Psalm 141:3, "Take control of what I say, O...

highground

Always take the high ground. What does that mean? Does that mean to let someone walk all over you? No. It means, always do the right thing whether the other person does or not.

If they're mean to you, you be nice to t...

No matter what situation you are in, it may be out of your control but it's not out of God's control. When you face a dead-end you don't focus on what you can't do, you focus on what God can do. 17 "Abraham believed in God who gives life to the dead and who creates something out of nothing." There are two things God does that you can't do -- God can give life to t...
