A man’s conscience,

formed when he’s young, belongs either to God or to the World. That is, an adult man serves money, fame, power, and honor or serves God and others. And more, that same man, if found to be a father of children will teach his children what he learned when he formed his conscience. He will teach his children the Godly way or the worldly way.

Choosing The World
There’s an unconscious choice made early in life. In the early years of life, a young man will spend time with worldly things and will form ideas of right and wrong based on worldly rules. The world then imposes its control on the youth for a lifetime. If worldly they desire money, fame, power, honor over a Godly way of life. They’ll not know true freedom but will be choosing to follow the desires imposed on them by the world.
Choosing Godly
The opposite is true, a young man whose conscience is formed in the early years by God’s word will become Godly. They will live in the world and be a beacon of truth, beauty, and goodness. They’ll have worldly things and enjoy worldly things but only in the context of their love of God and neighbor first.

It is the rare young man who can alone choose the Godly way over the worldly way.  It is the purpose of fathers to help a son choose the Godly way and form a young man’s conscience in their son. Godly men pay dividends for their son’s lifetime, plus, their families, workplaces, and communities.

Luke 8:15
“Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart
and yield a harvest through perseverance.”


What is the word this phrase is speaking of?  ________

two priorities

Life’s Godly priorities: God, your health, family, school is your work, play.
Vacation should be for play but should keep Godly priorities intact. If on vacation you lose God, you lose God in all things.


Paradise For Ever

A Friends Passing

Brian was a 4th grade buddy who past away in 1971. We played together at lunchtime and sat near each other in class. When he passed away from cancer I remember being confused. Death wasn’t something I understood. As life unfolds there are plenty of moments where thinking of death is normal, yet, our world tells us something different.

Stuck in the Worlds Web

The world doesn’t want us to be bothered with death, ours or anyone else’s. The world wants you to have all the distractions in life, this way you won’t focus on what’s really important. Continue reading “Paradise For Ever”

Your Work Is Meaningful

Economics of Work and Salvation.

Work makes us work together. It’s in this that we can show our humanity to each other, or not. Have you been at work and seen behavior that steals another person’s dignity? Think of it this way, have you seen a coworker bullied, put-upon, made to work to excess? Or, is your workplace a place where humanity thrives and the business does as well?

What makes one place of business one way, or another?

Economics of people working together, HR, employee benefits, and faith are what I write about, someone passed along this informal classroom pole. 40% of Students admitted they have witnessed broken workplaces.

Workplaces are human places first. People do stuff, solve problems and make things together. It’s all done to promote family and community, that’s what work does.

Work is Part of God’s Original Design

We Must Bring Meaning to Our Work

Matthew Kelly’s lenten video on bringing meaning to your work.

For 98% of us our work is not intrinsically meaningful. Like the work of a Cancer doctor whose work is by its nature intrinsically meaningful, most of us must bring meaning to our work.

How do you bring meaning in every moment of your workday?

Katherine Drexel, A Saints’ Work

Giving up the worlds hold on us makes it possible to see a reality seldom recognized in the daily grind. Trading the world’s promise of fame, fortune, power, honor, privilege for God’s promises means recognizing the workplace as a human place.

It means, doing things like Katherine Drexel did, it is to move your heart from doing for yourself, do doing for others. Katherine Drexel gave up Millions and look what her choice created, a link to her story of starting Xavier University and so many other good works.

Healthcare, Trumpcare Won’t Lower Your Premium

Experts have had 40+ years to solve it

It seems to me, the Americans suspended their worry about Healthcare premium hoping Trump and his experts will fix it. They won’t. The experts, right or left, can’t solve Healthcare because they refuse to examine their own practices. Experts always point to others to change instead of themselves. Sound harsh? Maybe it is, Continue reading “Healthcare, Trumpcare Won’t Lower Your Premium”
