Something in our hearts rests when we see people step out of the expected and sacrifice their own success to benefit another. It resonates deep inside of us. For Christians, this hits close to home in that our Savior, Jesus Christ, gave His life and took the penalty for our sins so that we might be forgiven and restored in our relationship with God. He sacrificed, we gained. This is a stark contrast to the world’s anthem to do whatever it takes to succeed no matter the cost.
Football players in Olivet, MI came up with a plan to sacrifice themselves for the benefit of another. Their motive was to return the love that was shown to them by a fellow teammate. I do not want to give away too much of the story. Check out the CBS video below.
When I think about the latest technology, I sometimes get overwhelmed. Some technology concepts are so in depth that I have thought from time to time that maybe I have reached my “technology capacity”. Then my mind wonders to those who are less exposed to technology than myself. Everyone has that one friend, or more common family member, who hasn’t jumped on a technology trend since the laptop. And the truth is, they only jumped on that trend because someone gave them an old laptop. Do you think there are technology products on the market that are too complicated for the average person to master? Are there people out there who will never understand technology no matter how hard they try? Let me know your thoughts below.
Take a deep breath. Stop for a minute. Notice what is happening around you. Sunday may be the Sabbath for many but chances are if you are reading this blog, Sunday is your “go” day.
You are the leadership and administration of churches and organizations across America and beyond. If I were to challenge you to stop on Sunday, just for a moment and take in all the Lord is doing around you, my challenge would be deferred by many of you. You may be amidst the hustle and bustle of God’s creation but are you able to genuinely take part?
I was chatting with a lady just yesterday. She was telling me about her current dilemmas with technology that forcibly flare up on Sunday mornings, specifically in the area of check-in. For a church with 25 Sunday sections for children alone, she had a lot of people to record. The shocking part is, she had to enter all the information in their systems by hand!
There is only one of you. Your efforts for the Lord are pleasing whether the job is entering data or preaching a sermon. The questions is, how will you utilize that time differently when those monotonous tasks are no longer on the list?
Interested in the Check-In options we discussed? Need help brainstorming through dilemmas? Leave a comment below or contact us by phone 800-877-0222.

Happy Thursday! We could all use a little encouragement and a reminder of the big picture every now and then, right? I need to be reminded of the big picture often. Actually, I need to be reminded of the big picture daily. I am a details person and before I know it, I can zoom my focus in on the task at hand and forget the overall purpose. If you forget your purpose, you can lose your drive. Then before you know it Wednesday rolls around you cannot remember why turning in daily reports are important. Sound familiar?
I was encouraged this morning after reading an article from Christianity Today’s project titled “This is Our City”. This section is dedicated to articles sent in by readers from around the U.S. These readers are convinced that God has called them to make a difference in their cities despite each cities’ unique cultural challenges. Today I stumbled upon an article written about Memphis, TN. As many of you are aware, Shelby Headquarters is located in Memphis. Many of you have even visited us!! So it makes sense that this particular article was encouraging and refueling to me. To elaborate a bit, this article reminded me that I am not alone in my purpose of wanting to make a difference for the glory of the Lord and I am not alone in my city. This project instantly brought to mind all the Shelby customers that work many hours and give their talents daily for this same purpose in cities all across this nation and beyond. So be encouraged and remember your purpose. Your work, even paperwork, is not in vain and is glorifying to the Lord.
If you want to read the article I am referencing you can check it out here. As a warning, the title references violence, which is a challenge of many cities in our nation. I encourage you not to stop at the title, keep reading for the redemption that is revealed at the end.
Are you proud of your city and the work the Lord is doing there in the midst of challenges? Give your city a shout out below!!
I usually prefer stories that come with a happy ending. However, after reading a story in Tampa Bay Times I realized the stories with happy endings are good, but there are other stories that are debatably more important to tell like this one. This is the story of fifteen year old Davion Navar Henry Only. It is a tale of hope and bravery and it is still being told. Davion’s story is in process now so there is no way of knowing how it will end. I am inspired by his story. This story is worth telling. This story matters.
Davion Navar Henry Only lives in Florida and is one of many children in the state foster care program. He was born in jail and never met his parents. He recently got up the nerve to find his mother but what he found was an obituary. She had passed away only weeks prior to his search. Instead of losing hope he made positive changes. With the help and encouragement of his caseworker he made a bold request before a St. Petersburg, FL church congregation of around 300 people. I hope his request reaches many more through this post.
Davion Navar Henry Only asked for someone to love him. He asked that someone accept him exactly as he is, heavy and burdened from life. He asked that someone make him a part of their family. Davion asked to be adopted. His criteria for a family is simply anyone.
he world has told Davion in many ways that he is not wanted. However, as believers, we know that is far from the truth. Davion has been made in the image of a holy God and has infinite worth and value far beyond understanding. The truth is with three years left before he is out on his own the ending could go either way. I pray that the Lord would graciously show Davion that he is accepted and completely loved through Christ’s sacrifice no matter what status the adoption papers show. And I pray that the Lord would provide a family for Davion. Please join me in these requests.
