Humility vs Servanthood

Humility is a curious thing. I’m not sure if you can master it. And if you have, it would be ironic to say so. But one thing I’ve learned is that there is a difference between humility and servanthood. I’ve never had much of an issue serving others. I do well putting others first. But […]

Daddy Issues: Forgiving Our Father

I was cut off the other day in traffic. I had to hit my brakes to stop from hitting the guy in front of me. He didn’t even notice and as I went around him, I looked over and he was looking down at his cell phone. I was annoyed to say the least but within […]
