Dave Kraft on 3 ways to have longevity as a leader.
Bobby Clinton has come to the conclusion that only 30% of leaders finish well. That is very disconcerting, to say the least!
Joe Carter on Is sexual orientation analogous to race?
The argument to make this comparison takes the following form:
Major Premise: A sexual orientation is analogous to the category of race.
Minor Premise: Race is a category protected by anti-discrimination laws.
Conclusion: Therefore, sexual orientation should have the same civil-rights protections as those afforded to race.
The question we will examine is whether the major premise is true. Is sexual orientation analogous to race?
Eddie Becker on 5 things you should never say to your spouse.
Christine Hoover on What to not say (and what to say) to a pastor’s wife.
Don’t say: Oh, I didn’t ask/invite you/initiate with you because I know you’re so busy/have tons of friends/know everyone. One of the most frustrating things about being pastor’s wives is that very few people initiate friendship or include us in social activities, because they make assumptions about our schedule or our relationships. This is why many pastor’s wives are extremely lonely; they initiate constantly and receive little in return.
Jon Negroni on How all the Pixar movies exist in the same universe.
Tim Elmore on 5 signs your kids are entitled.
Why work when it can be given to you? It fosters a cycle of laziness and poor work ethic when we constantly give to our children without requiring any work. We need to create entry points starting at a young age for our children to contribute to household chores and jobs.
