You may have heard of reverse mentoring.
It happens when younger folk teach us older people how to do something–usually with technology (because they know more about it).
Today I want to reverse teach–that is, take something that is often hurtful and use its example for good.
A well-known news broadcaster often talks about the negative influence of the “machines” in our modern world. He’s referring primarily to cell phones–which are becoming powerfully addictive.
Let’s flip it around.
Here’s what we can learn from the machines.
For many years I was confused over the difference between a vision statement and a mission statement.
Eventually, I sorted it out and now teach courses on this subject at Faith International University.
Allow me to use our nation’s birthday–the 4th of July–to settle in your own mind the difference between vision and mission. We will do it through the eyes of the Declaration of Independence.
It’s our American Vision (Statement). Do you share it?
There are many events that impacted history over the past four thousand years. (Creation scientists calculate 4128 B.C. for the earth’s birthday.)
Some of those events were disastrous. Others changed the world for good in varying degrees.
One could easily make the argument that Good Friday–when Jesus died for the sins of the world–stands out as the greatest event of all time.
But I still believe the resurrection tops the list.
