The Quest is Calling You

The Quest is Calling You

Every man is born with two latent questions: “Who am I?” and “What am I to do with my life?” Without premeditation or instruction, both questions at some point erupt from the depths of a man’s soul. It’s as if we are dropped into the middle of a mystery movie and asked to figure out the […]

Reject Passivity

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”  Genesis 3 changes everything.  It’s in that infamous chapter that Satan tempts Adam and Eve to do the one and only thing God had asked them not to do—to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and […]

The Secret of True Greatness

I need to admit something embarrassing: I’ve always wanted to be famous—to be great in the eyes of others. Despite the fact that I know many famous people live miserable lives, the longing has never gone away. It first erupted in my early 20’s when I wanted to be a recording artist. Being born and […]
