The movie Gladiator opens with a scene in which the Roman General Maximus is getting his troops excited before they go into battle against barbarians in Germany. He rides his horse back and forth at the head of the line, and he shouts so all his troops can hear, “What we do in life echoes in eternity!”
This statement is true on every battlefield, whether in a deep forest with the Roman army or in the ordinary decisions you make in the course of each day. What happens here has eternal implications.
What if today were your last day? How would you want to spend it? What does your kingdom investment portfolio look like?”

Consider what that one verse means for your life. (Read More)
The Strategic Few
Are you among the few who make the greatest difference for Christ within your sphere of influence?
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)
