Some Lessons We've Learned

Over the last 40 years of ministry

Listening

By boblehman / December 7, 2021

Is this true in your life? We get so preoccupied with our story that we do not take an interest in what others have to say. I must confess: guilty! “I’ve got the better story.” “You need to listen to me.” “I’m funny and engaging.” If you’ve said or thought of any of those statements,…

Right words at the right time

By boblehman / November 30, 2021

The Message paraphrase of Proverbs 25:11-23 says, “The right word at the right time is like a custom-made piece of jewelry, And a wise friend’s timely reprimand is like a gold ring slipped on your finger.” Our words are valuable, precious. These “right words” can include statements that are seemingly simple but potentially significant. Here are…

Servant leadership

By boblehman / November 23, 2021

There is a paradox found in the Bible regarding leadership. To be a good leader, you need to be a servant. That’s certainly counter-intuitive especially in the workplace culture of today. But look at what Mark records: And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers…

Contentment = Happiness

By boblehman / November 16, 2021

What makes you as a leader happy? That’s a pretty wide-open question. I guess it depends on the person. Could it be money? Maybe fame? Perhaps power? If your life and expectations reflect what matters the most to you, chances are you’re fairly happy. When your goals conform to your personal priorities, they bring you a…

Integrity

By boblehman / November 9, 2021

Integrity. What does it mean? Google defines it as “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.” It is the thing you want for others. It is what you want for your family, your kids, and your grandkids. You want it for your company. There is no question about this. I’m…

Ordinary and Extraordinary

By boblehman / November 2, 2021

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little “extra.” I have found that to be true my whole life. Those that go the extra mile are usually the ones who get the reward at the end. I’ve rarely seen exceptions to that statement. In fact, that has formed my philosophy of hiring new staff.…

Leadership from Mom

By boblehman / October 26, 2021

Leadership can be hard to define. On one end it can be specific to Fortune 500 marketplace companies and on the other end, it can be generalized to the way a family operates. There are many who would state that leadership is a commodity that is reserved for a select few. I disagree. Because there…

Changed life

By boblehman / October 19, 2021

Love those who can’t love you back. I think that statement encapsulates the very heart of a changed life. There are many definitions and examples of how Jesus changes our life. A tax collector named Zacchaeus paid people back 4 times what he stole from them. God changed Rahab’s identity from a prostitute to a…

Hard work

By boblehman / October 12, 2021

It takes work and focus. What takes work and focus you might ask? Answer: Just about everything. Aside from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ which is by grace through faith, everything else takes work…hard work. And related to work is its familiar corollary: focus. It’s been said, “You can’t have a million-dollar dream with…

Loving well

By boblehman / October 5, 2021

TIME magazine, February 23, 2015, makes an intriguing statement “research shows married couples enjoy greater longevity than singles.” That report makes “’til death do us part” even more of a commitment. Married couples have been found to have lower rates of substance abuse, lower blood pressure, and less depression than singles. Even though the study is a few…
