Avoiding Christmas Financial Disasters
Posted on December 5, 2013
The time of joy at Christmas often turns into a time of financial stress. In my financial career, I have observed these typical financial mistakes at Christmas (OK, I will admit it. Not just observed these, but made these mistakes too) (1) Giving too many presents - especially to children. Admittedly, I do not remember being concerned about this as a child, but I now see... ...

REFUSING TO WEAR MASKS AND PLAY GAMES
Posted on August 4, 2013
We refuse to wear masks and play games. This is what the apostle Paul mandates in 2 Corinthians 4:2b (Message Bible). This is quite a mandate since the unconscious mantra for a man is to conceal what\'s really going on in his inside. Isn\'t it interesting that what is most important to us guys, we talk about the least? That\'s the reason acquaintances we know sometimes......

A BORN AGAIN TEST
Posted on June 28, 2013
How do we know if we are a child of God? Jesus phrased it born again. Paul used the term a new creation in the Holy Spirit? In other words, how can we know if we are truly saved? We can ask ourselves some questions to help us assess if we are a new creation in Christ: 1) Do I tend to want to stay clear of conversations about Christ? 2) Does my desire for success, reputation and earthly delights easily arise within me while I am mostly indifferent about things of Christ? 3) Do I tend to believe that I can do enough good things to redeem myself in order to get into the good graces of God? In other words, if I do more good than bad, then am I good to go spiritually? 4) Am I the same inside as I was before my conversion? That is, when I.... ...

Want More Contentment?
Posted on May 24, 2013
The sooner you release to God that last hold-out for control of your life, the more content you\'ll be. When you realize you\'re just along for the ride, and God\'s at the wheel, you will - under the power of the Holy Spirit - relinquish it, and then be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey with God so much more (Psalms 138:8). Where God is taking you is too mysterious and......

Wise Words During A Difficult Time
Posted on April 16, 2013
I get an email newsletter from Rick Warren. He and his family are going through a very difficult time following their son\'s suicide last week. I am praying for them and request you do also. I received this email from him this week, and I thought it was very worthy to pass along. Our founder, Gary Chester Morse, was a huge advocate for a Christian man having another Christian man he could talk to about challenges, his life, spiritual things, family issues, etc. A close bud, is how Gary said it. I like the way Rick speaks to the practice of an accountability partner. It is brief, to the point and.... ...

At What Age Did Methuselah Retire?
Posted on March 21, 2013
After a tough day at work, retirement certainly sounds appealing. As I briefly fantasize about a life of more leisure and freedom, two thoughts cross my mind: is it financially feasible to retire? Should I stop working and leave the place of influence God has for me in the workplace? Life expectancies are increasing. The American Society of Actuaries says that a 65-year old man will likely have another 17 years to live. For women, it's 20. For married couples at age 65, there's a one in three chance that one will live into the 90's. If a person retires at age 62 and then lives to.......

The Secret to Happiness
Posted on November 21, 2012
Have you noticed that wherever we are, we wish we were somewhere else? If it's summer, we wish it were fall. If it's winter, we can't wait for it to be summer. No matter what we have, we seem to want what our friend or neighbor has. Contentment is a challenge when you live in an environment that is smothered in the idea that material possessions equal happiness. In the US, we live in an environment where almost everyone is.......

Both Your Playmate and Praymate
Posted on October 27, 2012
I've personally never known a couple that has divorced who had prayed together for many years. I've been on the look-out for an exception to the rule but haven't come across even one. The key word here is "together". This is very different than praying separately (although that, of course, is a good thing). There is something more powerful than even sex when a husband and wife regularly.......

In The Trenches
Posted on September 23, 2012
When I meet a man who is in the trenches helping other men, I stop and take notice. Pastor Don Watkins in Paducah is such a man. He understands that we all struggle with certain sins and strongholds that can become an addiction that is hard to break. I learned about his upcoming study to help people with addiction or understanding addiction and asked him to give me more information...Here's what he sent. Hi, my name is Don. I am a recovering idolator. You've probably never heard anyone introduce themselves this way.......

Yes, Size Does Matter
Posted on September 6, 2012
The way I see it, a group of more than a handful of men is not Christian fellowship. Why? In a larger group, we guys don't get real with one another. We tend to have on our game faces. We don't open up. We don't reveal our inner struggles (yeah, we all have them). So what's the point of superficial, casual conversation? How is that experiencing real life? Jesus chose twelve to get up close and personal - but with only three to be......

Offer Something Real
Posted on July 27, 2012
Sometimes it seems hard to share our faith. On one extreme we feel like we must have all of the answers to the deep questions. On another extreme we feel like sharing our testimony seems kind of hokey or unexciting and wouldn't convey the message well. If we are to be men who win, we must approach sharing our faith in a different manner. We must offer something real. It is important to know what you believe, have a Christian worldview, have some theology that you understand and beliefs you hold dear. However, the world needs to hear you talk about forgiveness, and not always of its sins. I find that the more I speak of my own struggles, the forgiveness I've received, and the enormous debt I owe to Christ, the more people are interested and engaged. I have studied the defense of the faith for all of my Christian life and defended the faith in evangelistic and academic settings for several years. I've learned through this experience that I've been wrong in one important......

How Much Is Your Freedom Worth
Posted on June 28, 2012
I've always been interested in history and politics. The processes of change that formed nations and their cultures is interesting and opens your eyes to many things. This time of year it is worth asking, "How much is your freedom worth?" We're surrounded with political messages about what we have a right to and what we are entitled to as Americans. At this same moment in history there are other nations fighting dictators and regimes that don't hesitate to spill blood in continuing the oppression. It makes me ask, "How much is your freedom worth?" I listen to the news and hear people ready to trade freedoms for promises of political or social security. The freedoms they would trade they didn't earn nor do they know how they were gained. They think freedoms and rights are things to be traded back and forth for political gain or made part of negotiations to make all sides happy. It makes me wonder, how much is your freedom in Christ worth? Would you trade it......

AN IMPORTANT DATE
Posted on June 8, 2012
"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17 This verse is the foundation for our Men Who Win ministry. We believe men need other men in their lives to successfully finish the race. We can not do it alone. Don't let the enemy convince you otherwise. Jesus sent the disciples out in pairs because we need each other. I hear a lot of men tell me they've had a hard time finding other men to share their walk. I know a great place. August 10th and 11th, we will be gathering together at a wonderful place in Hardin, KY for our 3rd Men Who Win Advance. (It's an Advance, because we will not retreat.) Last year's event was such a blessing to all who came. Men who love the Lord with all their hearts will be coming together to.......

When Fear Strikes
Posted on May 4, 2012
We guys tend to try to hide our fears by putting on our game faces --our big false fronts of being 10' tall and bullet proof. When hit with fear, I recommend making a few tight buds and family members aware of the problem so that they will pray for me. I love it that God hears and responds to the prayers of Godly people (James 5:16). Just being assured of these prayers gives me more......

Financially Married or Marred?
Posted on April 6, 2012
After sixty nine years of marriage, my grandparents qualified as marriage experts. One afternoon my grandfather inadvertently shared an insight about the financial strengths of men and women. My grandparents survived as farmers – no easy task. They started with nothing, worked hard, gradually obtained farmland, raised crops and cattle, and acquired more farmland. As we sat on his front lawn one day before he died, he sighed and speculated that he could have had more if my grandmother had been willing.... ...

Bro, Pray This for Your Wife
Posted on March 15, 2012
Hey bros, pray this for your wife: Father, I said, "Til death do us part" -- I want to mean it. Help me love you more than her, and her more than anyone or anything else. Help me bring her into Your presence today. Make us one, like You are three-in-one. I want to hear her, cherish her, and serve her -- So she would love You more and we can bring You glory. Amen.** This prayer is pretty extraordinary. Think of the radical... ...

Are You Sheltered in the Arms of God?
Posted on March 3, 2012
My wife Barbie thought I was crazy for taking a nap during the time when our house was shaking from the strong winds, part of the severe storms in Western Kentucky this week. She and her Dad Jim went to the basement. I said, "I am taking a nap in my own bed." I felt sheltered in the arms of God and had no fear of dying. The words of the late Dottie Rambo say it well: "So let the storm clouds rage high, The dark clouds rise. They don't bother me. For I'm sheltered in the arms of God. He walks with me, And naught of earth shall harm me, For I'm sheltered in the arms of God." Amen ...

Can Jesus Swim?
Posted on March 1, 2012
Bad news sells. Bad news gets your attention. When economic challenges are present like now, the bad news receives much attention. Any good news or positive indicator is given little attention. Look at the size of the headlines when the stock market is significantly down compared to it being up. No surprise – the down days receive bigger headlines than the up days of the same amount. At a recent conference, I heard Stuart Varney, an economic journalist with FOX Business Network, speak about the ...

White Hat Guys Have Smoother Sailing
Posted on February 16, 2012
We sometimes tend to think the bad guys have it easier than we men trying to do the right thing. It seems the ones who are obviously corrupt - by the things they do and say -- get away with a ton of badness and too often come out on top in business, sports, and even relationships. (Nice guys finish last, as they say?) Because of their moral shortcuts, it can appear life is easier for......

Not Just Getting Older, But Better
Posted on February 2, 2012
I turned 45. Another way of saying 45 is “old,” according to my teenage daughters. But I’m feeling good about the proverbial “middle age crisis” after reading a recent study. Researchers from the Brookings Institution found that middle age people make fewer financial mistakes than those who are younger or much older. Researchers found that age fifty-three is the best age where the fewest... ...

Temptation: Can't You Handle It?
Posted on January 20, 2012
By Gary Chester Morse (1945-2010) As a five year old, I'd run to my father when a certain 11 year old bully would pick on me. My reliance on Dad would dispel my fears. As long as I was in my Father's presence, although weak compared to the bully, I was safe and empowered through him. I once tried to take care of the bully myself to prove... ...
