Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
The original Greek in this passage says, ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking.
~ Pastor Bob
Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
by Max Lucado
Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?
IntegrityTo have courage to move forward and pursue what God calls us to do each of us needs a good dose of Integritymore than simple honesty, it’s the key to success. A person with integrity has the ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances. Drawing on experiences from his work, Dr. Henry Cloud, a clinical psychologist, leadership coach, corporate consultant and nationally syndicated radio host, shows how our character can keep us from achieving all we want to (or could) be.
by Henry Cloud
In Integrity, Dr. Cloud explores the six qualities of character that define integrity, and how people with integrity: Are able to connect with others and build trust, are oriented toward reality, finish well, embrace the negative, are oriented toward increase, have an understanding of the transcendent.
Integrity is not something that you either have or don’t, but instead is an exciting growth path that all of us can engage in and enjoy.
