From Perishable to Imperishable
Have you ever considered that everything you and I can see and touch is ultimately going to pass away? We live in a perishable world; it is all subject to decay and destruction. However, the things of heaven are imperishable; they will last forever! And we can store up our true treasure in heaven. (read more)
Making a Difference for All Eternity
What would you be willing to sacrifice for a season, so you could enjoy something far greater, forever?
Jesus talks about a man who finds a treasure buried in a field. This man goes out and sells everything he has in order to raise funds to buy that field. He believes he has nothing that isn’t expendable toward gaining the precious treasure he has glimpsed. (See Matthew 13:44.) (read more)
Time, Talent, Treasure
KingdomNomics is living life by the principles defining value from God’s point of view, as outlined in the Scriptures. We apply these principles in the decisions that determine how we invest our time, our talent, and our treasure, the “three Ts” of kingdom advancement. (read more)
Three Kinds of Believers
I’m something of a student of human behavior, and I’ve come to some conclusions about how most people in the world relate to God and his gifts. With regard to those who do make some kind of attempt to serve God, I’ve observed that there are basically three kinds of believers in this world. (read more)
The Strategic Few
Many people choose what is easy. Few people champion the kind of principles we’re discussing with KingdomNomics. Fewer still are those who will live them out. Being intentional about the use of our time, talent, and treasure is difficult. So we may not be surrounded by a great crowd of enthusiastic adherents to these ideas. But they are still true. They actually work in this life, bringing great joy and contentment. (read more)
The Loaf of Time
I think of daily time like daily bread. Each one of us has a “loaf” of time, if you will. Each day consumes one slice, and the loaf becomes smaller as time passes. We eventually realize this, to our dismay, and it becomes so very important to use our given time wisely—to make our lives count for something meaningful. That’s what KingdomNomics is all about: knowing and experiencing the benefits of joyfully trading earthly, temporary gratification for something that will last forever. (read more)
Be a Converterlator!
What in the world is a “Converterlator”?
Well, until I decided to write my book there was no such word as Converterlator! I created the word to describe the change that occurs in the life of a child of God who is shifting the gears of their life from park to drive. This transformation propels them into a life of converterlating and brings positive change into their lives from both an earthly and eternal standpoint. A Converterlator is actively working to bring about kingdom change using all of the resources God has made available him or her. A Converterlator understands God’s purposes for giving us time, talent, and treasure to use for him. The purpose for doing so brings glory to our Creator God as we live an exciting and fulfilling life here on earth and build treasure for ourselves in heaven. This is a key principle of KingdomNomics: living a disciplined life committed to experiencing maximum returns in life and eternity. (read more)
From Convert to Converterlator
God is in the life-changing business … and he wants to transform you into being more Christ-like in all areas of your life! The first step occurs when you place your faith in Christ alone to be your personal Lord and Savior. But accepting Jesus into your life is still only the first step. It is important to understand that each one of us is supposed to be an agent of change; a transformer who not only experiences a life of joy now, but who also makes decisions that will make our life echo into eternity. This is a basic principle of KingdomNomics: We use the resources available to us, what I like to refer to as the “three T’s,” time, talent, and treasure, to make a difference for eternity. And in so doing, we are Converterlators. (read more)
From Consuming to Converterlating
The Bible tells us in Genesis 1–3 that God created a beautiful and perfect world. He created Adam and Eve in his image to inhabit his perfect world with the express purpose of having fellowship with him. And his creative design was for Adam and Eve to administer responsible stewardship over his creation.(read more)
Converterlating Your Time
While we are living in this world, each one of us has twenty-four hours each day. That doesn’t seem like so much until you break it down and discover it represents 1,440 minutes! That’s a lot of minutes … and we all have the same amount to use. We may have different talents, and the amount of treasure varies from person to person, but we all have the same amount of time. And the basic question I have for you here is: In what ways are you using the time God has given to you in this world? (read more)
Converterlating Your Talent
A paper weight on my desk has the inscription, “Don’t wait for your ship to come in. Swim out to it!” As we practice KingdomNomics, we aggressively look for ways to converterlate our talents for the advancement of the kingdom of God. People often make the mistake of waiting for their ship to come in, hoping for something to come their way. Waiting and wishing with good intentions will not accomplish any worthwhile objective. If it feels like not much is happening in your life, perhaps the Lord is saying, “Stop waiting for your ship; start swimming!” (read more)
Converterlating Your Treasure
A relationship with Christ changes our perspective on all things, including how we use our treasure. Before Christ came into my life, I had one view of money—it was meant to be used for my own personal pleasure. My view was distorted. Everything I thought was important was diametrically opposed to the things of God. I needed the perspective of eternity. (read more)
Our Reward in Heaven
Most people don’t understand the Bible’s view of eternity. They understand that there is a physical world, the one in which we live and age and finally die. And they realize there is the eternal world that follows, bound by heaven and hell, but not physical locations or the passing of time. They see it as a “someday” place, something not really real until we get there. (read more)
Echo into Eternity
A reward time is coming. There is a time when each one of us will stand in front of the Judgment Seat of Christ for the purpose of receiving reward or suffering loss of reward. We do have accountability to the Lord for what we have done or not done here on this earth. Jesus Christ is coming back, and he is bringing a reward with him. The apostle Paul had a lot to say on this topic in the New Testament. (read more)
