Customer Service

Approximate Reading Time: 3 Minutes Many of us started our work careers in the service industry. While most of us as teenagers/twenty-somethings didn’t envision a job in a fast-food joint or a retail store as being part of our long-term work plans for life, there’s an important aspect that hopefully a lot of picked up on during our time behind the cash register: providing good customer service. Even though we may not have always been thrilled about the bosses that…

Scott’s Newest Writing Project

Approximate Reading Time: 2 Minutes   Hey, where has Scott been lately?” A few of you may have been wondering the above interrogative. Rest assured, I have not dropped off the map. In fact, the metaphorical map may be growing by leaps and bounds. In the past six months, many people have seen their COVID-19-inflicted semi-lockdown as a bringer of hours of freed-up time, with some lamentably scurrying for new hobbies and (gag) new Netflix series on which to binge.…

The Filter

Approximate Reading Time: 2 Minutes All ideas that you believe and follow must begin and end with Jesus and the Bible.” In today’s information overload world, you’re never at a loss for people giving you advice, sharing memes that echo their thoughts, giving their two cents, and wanting to offer their take on why things happen and what you should do about them. For instance, if you open yourself to social media even the smallest bit, you’ll get a relentless…

Numbers in the Bible

Approximate Reading Time: 12 Minutes I’ve always loved numbers and statistics, as well as clever connections and relationships between things, in just about every area of knowledge or storytelling. So when I first discovered numerological connections and meanings in Scripture, the nerdy part of me who loves stuff like this went into high “geek-out” mode. There are some who take this brand of Biblical numerology to fantastic extremes, going so far as to uncovering numeric values to alphabetic characters and…

The Importance of the Resurrection

Approximate Reading Time: 3 Minutes Although millions of Christians pile into churches this time every year – and this year, many will watch services via YouTube, Facebook video, or Zoom chats – a large segment of them probably don’t even realize the significance of Easter. Perhaps they know of the Cross and the Resurrection of Jesus but have never really given it more than a fleeting thought or two in their minds. Maybe that describes you in your thoughts on…

Scorecards

Approximate Reading Time: 4 Minutes Scorecards are used in a lot more places than just keeping track of who is winning or losing in a sports game. Brothers and sisters, whether we admit it or not, a great many of us employ mental scorecards to evaluate so many things in our lives. We keep track of how many times the boss compliments your co-workers’ efforts but not yours. We’ll count how often that we are the ones who text or…

The Overlooked

Approximate Reading Time: 3 Minutes I know who you are. You may feel like you’re the only one, but I’ve been in your shoes more times than you can count, and I sympathize with your plight. You are the one who constantly gets overlooked. The one who busts their rear-end while everyone else gets the accolades. It seems like everyone else gets the fanfare, the promotions at work, the likes on social media, the praise and pats on the back,…

Always Be Teachable

Approximate Reading Time: 5 Minutes “Poverty and disgrace come to him who ignores instruction, but whoever heeds reproof is honored.” – Proverbs 13:18 [ESV] During the early years of my first marriage, I was admittedly unskilled when it came to the “domestic arts”. Being a budding, young man in my early twenties, I had just barely begun living independently, and taking care of the house wasn’t exactly my forte. I’ll put it bluntly: I was a pizza-box-thrown-around-the-apartment, soda-cans-everywhere-kind of slob.…
