The More Beautiful Question

American poet E. E. Cummings wrote, “Always the beautiful answer who asks the more beautiful question.” The right question can get right to the heart of the matter. Often, John 15:1-11, is seen as a mandate to get busy and “bear fruit.” But that’s not really the heart of the matter. There’s one beautiful question we must answer before we ever get to that.

Hands-On Fellowship

J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic Lord of the Rings series tells the story of a band of brothers bound, not by affinity, but by a seemingly impossible mission. He paints a picture of fellowship that’s much different than our conception today...and much more in line with Scripture. It wasn’t standing around the church hall eating donuts and drinking coffee; it was hands-on.

Choosing Obscurity: The Discipline of Secrecy

Everyone knows the names Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. They rank as two of the wealthiest men in the world, and they’re known for giving a lot away. But have you ever heard of Chuck Feeney? He’s the man Gates and Buffett identify as their hero. Buffett goes so far as to say, “He should be everyone’s hero.” He’s obscure because he’s become so practiced at a discipline Jesus talks about in Matthew 6:1-4.

Carrot and Stick: The Discipline of Frugality

Carrot and stick is an idiom for a combination of reward and punishment to induce behavior. It’s named in reference to a cart driver dangling a carrot or wielding a stick. The donkey moves toward the carrot because it wants the reward, or moves away from the stick to avoid pain. Either way, the cart gets drawn. Every effective parent, teacher, lawyer, political or business leader employs both carrot and stick. It’s a reality of the Scriptures as well. In Matthew 25 Jesus tells a pointed story of both carrot and stick that helps frame the spiritual discipline of frugality…one with eternal implications.

Just Breathe: The Discipline of Frugality

We continue the series, "Practice Makes Habit" as Steve explores the spiritual discipline of frugality, and why it may not be what you think. It's a lot more like something you do without thinking, all day, every day than being a cheapskate. By the way, you're doing it right now.
