Often, I am asked, “What is Corporation YOU?”

The simple answer is: Corporation YOU is an inspirational narrative that will lead you up the ladder of personal success and happiness.

However, Corporation YOU is so much more.

So, “What is Corporation YOU?” Watch the video below for the answer…

Now you know the answer to the question “What is Corporation YOU?”

It is a discovery of a world within — a world of higher purpose, a world of action, a world “beyond self.” It is in this world where YOU grow “beyond self”.

And if they can do it, So Can YOU!

preemptive-love

Today I discovered Preemptive Love.

I made this powerful discovery after previewing the video, embedded below, after a friend posted it on facebook. After watching it, I just had to share it’s powerful message.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, this video is worth much more — or arguably much less. For it is only worth one word.

So, what is Preemptive Love? To find out, watch this video till the end…

What We Found Inside This Church Destroyed by ISIS Took Our Breath Away from Preemptive Love on Vimeo.

Powerful, yes?

… And now you know the worth of the word in this video. The Word! The Word that encompasses all words.

The Word that was from the beginning; the Word that was with God; the Word that is God.

God who is Love!

Since, we are the body of Christ. We too are the Word. The Word sent forth. The Word called in action.

We are Preemptive Love!

So, my boys and I have a little ritual we carry out every time they accompany me to work on a Saturday.

As I try to get things prepared for the upcoming week, they push together two desks, then quietly sit as they enjoy a prepared box lunch which includes a PBJ, a cheese stick, fruit snacks and a juice box, as they watch EvanTude HD on the flatscreen.

Afterwards, we take the “alligator” down to the basement and explore.

Finally, we hop in the car and drive to a beautiful, century-old, little white Church, light a candle and spend sometime with Our Lord in prayer before hopping back in the car to head home.

This week, just before I opened the Church doors to enter, my seven-year-old turned and stopped me, then said, “Daddy, I don’t think he (his little bro) should go into Church wearing that.”

It was a Burger King crown.

“Jesus might get offended,” he humbly added. “Because Jesus is really the only King.”

Have you ever been called out in Church?

Well, I have — and I’m not talking about being called to witness or lead to an altar call.  I mean literally singled out by your priest or pastor in the middle the Church sermon!

“Where’s Jim?” my pastor shouted after awkwardly pausing in the midst of his homily.

Before services, as my wife and I were signing our children up for Religious Ed classes, I questioned my pastor if he could give me the inside scoop on the weekly sermon question.  (Each week he would start his sermon with a question.)

This Sunday, he was grumpy and cross. Long story short, he had a bad week — which included what he described as “the wedding from Hell” and, for the first time in weeks, did not prepare a question for this week’s homily.

For full disclosure, I needled him for a’bit which only seemed to make him even more grumpy. So, it seemed, he was now getting even when he called me out!

“As you know, every week I ask a question and Jim asked me before Church if I had a question today. Well, I don’t,” he continued as he marched down the center aisle in my direction. “So, where is he? He usually sits way in the back.”

Finally, he found me.

“There you are,” he sniped. “Here’s my question: Can God do everything?”
I had a feeling it was a set up, but I gave the standard answer anyway.
“Yes, He can,” I boldly replied, though internally I was wishing I could hide.
“Well then, could He make a rock so big that He couldn’t pick it  up?” he asked, then quickly moved back up the aisle, like a boxer heading to a neutral corner after landing a knockout punch.

If Christians could curse, I surely would’ve let a few fly that day in Church. Oh, wait. Thanks to Tim Hawkins, Christians can cuss — if we use the right words.

Shut the front door! You bleeping fart-knocking son of a motherless goat!”  Now I feel better!  Too bad I didn’t have that comeback prepared back then.

Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling very Christian for the remainder of the homily. For the next 40 minutes, I prayed for God to change my heart, by it was little or no use.  I was still pissed off as the Collect exited the pews.

As I left the Church, I slowed as I approached the exit where my pastor cheerfully greeted parishioners as they went forth.

With each step, I prayed and prayed not to seek vengeance or retribution.

“That’s what I get for listening to your homilies,” I joked — or at least tried to the best of my ability.
“Yes,” he laughed seemingly ignorant to the fact that I was brooding.

Funny how God works.

Though memorable for all the wrong reasons, that experience has turned out to be one of the most fruitful in my Christian formation.

Regardless of whether or not God can or cannot make a rock He cannot lift, we learn from scripture, most certainly, that God can NOT do everything.

God cannot be unjust (Hebrews 6:10). God cannot be disorder (1 Cor. 14:33). God cannot deny Himself (2 Timothy 2:13)

Above all, the Triune God cannot contradict Himself.

As R.C. Sproul writes, “If contradiction and truth could exist side by side, we would be left with a God whom we could never know or trust. If He did, we could not believe what He says or know how to follow Him.”

So, no God can’t do everything — and isn’t that a most wonderful thing!

Redemption – Corporation You © 2017

We’ve all heard or read these words:

“You have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thy enemy. But I tell you, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, pray for those who persecute and insult you, that so you may be true sons of your Father in heaven, who makes his sun rise on the evil and equally on the good, his rain fall on the just and equally on the unjust. If you love those who love you, what title have you to a reward? Will not the publicans do as much? If you greet none but your brethren, what are you doing more than others? Will not the very heathen do as much? 48 But you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

But have you ever read those words and wondered, “Could I really forgive anyone who intentionally harmed me or my family?” I have — especially when it comes to my family.

That’s why the video below is so powerful.

For me, it is proof of the Messiah, Emmanuel, the Resurrection and Life.

‘Into the Light’ is an original painting by Osnat

 

Thanks to technology, we are no longer burdened with the task of turning back our clocks.

These days, Daylight Savings almost goes unnoticed since our phones, tablets computers and most of our clocks reset themselves automatically at 2 am.

Pretty soon, the phrase “Spring forward; Fall back” will be an adage of the past.

It won’t be until Monday or Tuesday that we feel the slight effect caused by losing an hour of sleep. But since we’ll have so much daylight, our bodies will most-likely acclimate without notice.

Today, Daylight Savings has a second meaning: It’s the day that we are reminded to TEST the batteries in our smoke alarms. If you don’t know how to do that, I posted a link HERE.

According to the link:  On average, seven people die every day in the US as a result of house fires.[1] Though that number is high, the widespread use of home smoke detectors has resulted in a significant decrease in the number of house fire related deaths and injuries.[2]

That’s good news.

Speaking of Good News:  Do you think it’s a coincidence that on the day where we collectively focus on Saving Light, we too are reminded to protect our family from the threats of Deadly Fire?

Think about it…

God is everywhere.  All you have to do is look.
