Time Is Our Most Valuable Gift
Posted on December 27, 2011
Each year at this time, I dig in my heels and am determined to escape getting caught up in the mad dash to go out and buy "stuff" for my family and friends just because it's "time" to do it. Evidently I'm just rebellious enough to think I don't have to be part of the shopping frenzy and that I will do only meaningful acts of love for my family. Sounds well intentioned, doesn't it? Well, this year, as I awake each morning alone with more time to think, read and pray (without interruptions), I can honestly say that the pressure to buy and give so much "stuff" has genuinely subsided. In its place is a deep rooted desire to... ...

Critical Strategy for Joy in 2012
Posted on December 17, 2011
Here is your critical strategy to joy. This is a sure, true game plan, despite the nation's money meltdown, your own personal meltdown, and whatever else that could rob you of your joy. FOCUS ON OTHERS, not yourself. (Philippians 2:3-4) There it is - Joy for the New Year. People who are sold out to that which is greater than themselves - helping family and friends, or those less fortunate - get the most "bang" out of life. They are more joyous -- not a continuous high, mind you, but a ...

Your Life’s Purpose By Jeff McGough There comes a point in your life when you begin to wonder, “Why am I here?” What is the purpose of my life? Is your time consumed by things that... ...

The Secret to Happiness
Posted on November 23, 2011
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 “rich.” Hardships here are hardly considered hardships in the rest of the world. We complain because our cell phone doesn’t have the reception we want. We grumble because our truck doesn’t have the accessory we think we need. As the American holiday of Thanksgiving approaches, I can tell you the secret to happiness. It’s... ...

Ease Your Burden
Posted on November 3, 2011
Ease Your Burden Shortly after Gary (our founder) passed away, the Iron Sharpens Iron board of directors started working on honoring all of Gary's contributions to men's ministry by building an all new Men Who Win website. I am proud to say this site is now completed and online. You will find it much easier to navigate. It has a fresh clean new look. But most importantly, it is loaded with great content to help you and help others stay focused on... ...

The Sooner The Better
Posted on September 29, 2011
The Sooner The Better By Gary Chester Morse (1945-2010) 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...

Are We Fooling Ourselves?
Posted on September 16, 2011
At a recent Men Who Win Advance, Men came together, sang together, prayed for each other, were open and honest with each other. As Men Who Win, we are fooling ourselves if we say we have no sin when in reality, we lie a little here and there: when we look at porn online, or flirt with a woman at work when we have a loving faithful wife at home, or steal time or money from our employers. Read the piece below and ask yourself......

We All Need Some of This

Sometimes you have to start over
Posted on July 21, 2011
Starting Over By Clay Campbell Luke 19: 8 “Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.” 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” So, Zacchaeus decided to start over. Jesus gave him another chance. Zacchaeus even promised to give back four times anything he stole from someone. Wow! He decided to start over. Wilma Rudolph (June 23, 1940 – November 12, 1994) was an American athlete from Clarksville, Tennessee. Rudolph was considered the fastest woman in the ...

Mark Your Calendars
Posted on July 5, 2011
“We just don’t go that deep.” That was the comment made after telling a story about four men who road in the same car together for two hours and never shared a meaningful conversation the entire time. The reality for most men is that we don’t communicate beyond which player was traded, what we bought at Lowe’s and a very surface response to “how’s work?” We use the excuse, “that’s the way men are.” The reality is that while it is... ...

True Friend Relationships
Posted on March 24, 2011
Something I have noticed over the years is that men have a hard time sowing time into relationships, especially deep meaningful ones. Now when things get really difficult, I mean,   "If I do not get help I am going to die.Men will make time to try to get some help or counsel.  The problem I have found with this is when things start going well again, the old attitude retur...

Trust in God - Work Your Butt Off
Posted on March 8, 2011
I met with my accountability partner this week and he asked me this question: "How are you doing with keeping up with all you having going?" I responded by saying, "Let me read something from my journal I had just written yesterday." Sometimes I am torn between two good things - two great truths that seem to contradict each other. Stanislaw Lec said, "Proverbs contradict each other. That is...

Should You Be Worried?
Posted on February 10, 2011
I like talk radio. But after listening to it for a long time, I'm rarely in a good mood. It seems like their goal is to get you stirred up and worried about something. The recent political campaigns and the economic crisis provide plenty of fodder to frighten us about how bad things are. Advertising also taps into this "shouldn't-you-be-worried" line of thinking. A TV commercial...

No Tears for Things
Posted on January 20, 2011
I recently spoke at a church about a biblical view of managing money. In my humble, but accurate opinion, I thought the message was rather good. However, one of those in attendance that day stated a truth more powerfully and succinctly than I did. After my teaching, she waited to greet me. She earnestly held my hand as she shook it and said, "It's taken me about sixty years to learn t...

Think You Are Thankful?
Posted on November 24, 2010
I love Christmas.  I am always excited about Christmas.  So, now that our consumer-driven society starts promoting Christmas the day after Halloween, it is fine with me.  Unfortunately, it is so easy to let the Thanksgiving holiday fly by and jump ahead to Christmas.  But the purpose for celebrating Thanksgiving is very important.  Very few of us pause and give th...

A Daily Devotion
Posted on November 19, 2010
"If you are not doing a daily devotion it's the same as being hungry, and then walking right past the best restaurant in town." - Clay Campbell At a Walk to Emmaus Retreat I became convicted by the Holy Spirit to commit to a daily devotional time. Barbie and I read Our Daily Bread every day. I like it a lot. It takes about five minutes. I also read a chapter in Proverbs daily ...

I Felt Defeated by Jamie Futrell
Posted on October 21, 2010
Remember taking a trip in the pre-Garmin days.  You would make a wrong turn and immediately your internal GPS system would kick in.  You have a map of the state but not one of the particular city you are in.  You would follow your super directional senses.  Sometimes you got right back on the path.  And sometimes things just didn't seem to be where they were suppose...

A Band of Brothers by Jim Lewis
Posted on October 14, 2010
Occasionally something great will happen in your life.  Something life transforming happens and you are caught up and a part of something that changes you forever.  That is exactly what happen to me.  However, it did not start out that way. Even as Christians we can get hurt, beat down and live in defeat.  I call it a sick heart.  It happens.  It happened to ...

Encouraging Words by Jamie Futrell
Posted on October 7, 2010
The Apostle Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthians 9:23-25 (NLT) 23 I do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings.  24 Don't you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! 25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal ...

What Legacy Are Leaving?
Posted on September 30, 2010
For the last month or so I was asked almost every day "How is Gary Morse"? Now folks are saying, "Sorry to hear about your friend." The news this past month, that the tumors were growing again, was really sad for all of us that loved Gary. Doctors said there was not much hope, unless God would intervene with a miracle. That didn't happen.  But on Tues...

News about Gary Morse

As most of you know, after overcoming cancer twice, Gary was diagnosed with his second brain tumor in December 2009. After several unsuccessful treatment methods, doctors completed a very dangerous operation that removed Gary's tumor in March. In May, Gary was declared cancer free. We celebrated God's obvious healing. In June, doctors found new cancer and again it was in the form of brain tum...
