Just the statement and thought alone, is daunting and convicting,
“This was his life’s work.”
What will it be? What will I have to show for it? Will it be…anything? At the end, will I have achieved a LIFE’S WORK, or just a…life of work? > read more

My brother Jared always felt a pull to serve and give to the ‘least of these’. Literally, the most downtrodden. From homeless people when he was a kid, giving them every cent he had, to ultimately, prostitutes in Rwanda. Today he lives in Mombasa, Kenya, where he and his wife Ilea have devoted themselves to north Africa at large.
Jared comes from the same Caucasian parents I do, and we were raised together in Kentucky suburbia. Jared is just not at home in America. The poorest people here are wealthy by global standards, with a glut of opportunity and every resource at their fingertips. He has no more desire to serve the American population than he does to donate money to Donald Trump. > read more

It feels harsh at first, but then, oh so hopeful…
Check out this writing from Frederick Buechner, one of my fave authors, it’s an excerpt from his book, ‘The Alphabet of Grace’:
“I say that feet are very religious too. I say that if you want to know who you are, if you more than academically interested in that particular mystery, you could do a lot worse than look to your feet for an answer. Introspection in the long run doesn’t get you very far because every time you draw back to look at yourself, you are seeing everything except for the part that drew back, and when you draw back to look at the part that drew back to look at yourself, you see again everything except for what you are really looking for. And so on. Since the possibilities for drawing back seem to be infinite, you are, in your quest to see yourself whole, doomed always to see infinitely less than what there will always remain to see. Thus, when you wake up in the morning, called by God to be a self again, if you want to know who you are, watch your feet. Because where your feet take you, that is who you are.” > read more

Is there really, honestly a chance you could live outside of the norm and have a successful business of your own, doing something you truly care about and serving people? With time flexibility and immense freedom? Even…getting wealthy amidst it?
Of course you expect me to say yes and to pummel you with inspiration, motivation, exhortation and support from many pithy platitudes and quotes, right? > read more

A spouse, children, friends and a job that affords a nice car, house and amenities. The American Dream, right? Oh, plus you go to church.
So if you have this reality, you should be good. Right again?
But…what if you’re not content with this great reality? Maybe you’re being a little selfish? Being in the top percentage of wealth and fortune globally just isn’t enough?
Well, call me selfish then. And if it doesn’t feel like enough for you, let me see if I can help you justify your heart. > read more
