The Art of Leadership

What makes a leader a leader?  Are there certain qualitative differences between those who lead and those who follow?  When someone succeeds in leadership, is it the result of who she is, or what she does, or both?  And how would we know?  The Art of Leadership seeks the answers to these and many more …

Christian Worldview

Put on a pair of 3D glasses at a 3D movie and you will see something substantially different than if you watched with your naked eyes.  The lenses through which we see the world drastically alter both what we perceive about the world and how we interpret those perceptions.  Ask yourself, do you see God …

Hearing God

Think about it: the Creator of all that we can see or touch knows you intimately.  He knows what you love and what you despise.  He knows the dreams you carry in your heart and the problems you face.  And, because He desperately cherishes you, He is longing to speak with you on a personal …

Ten Principles of Highly Ethical People

Do the right thing.  It seems like good advice.  But how do I know what the right thing is?  And will the right thing in my personal life still be the right thing in business?  Is there another bottom line aside from, well, the bottom line?  The Wellspring School of Leadership welcomes Dr. David Gill, …

One of Jesus’ primary topics of conversation was the “Kingdom of God/Heaven,” a kingdom which he was inaugurating on the earth and which he assured his followers was altogether different from the world they were used to.  This was a place in which the last were first and the first were last (Mt 20:16); where …

When I approach Scripture honestly, with the understanding that these are books about real people in real time interacting (sometimes unwittingly) with a real God, I can meditate on the characters of the Bible in such a way that I imagine what it might have been like to do what they did.  And I consistently …

Spend enough time with someone – your friend, your spouse, your enemy – and you will learn who they are.  You will discover their likes and dislikes, their habits, their favorite phrases.  Spend a whole lot of time with someone and you will likely find out more than you ever wanted to know. I have …

Follow your heart. It’s the moral mantra of our society. By itself, it’s not the worse advise a person could give. In fact, the prophet Nathan says much the same to King David when David first brainstorms his ideas to build the Temple (1 Chr 17:2). But many of us have followed our hearts and …
