Almost everything we see in the world around us will eventually wear out and die. The grass fades. Flowers wilt. Stars burn out. Pens run out of ink. Cars break down. Technology becomes outdated. everything must decay and die. Scripture tells us that one thing stands in sharp contrast to the transitory nature of this world: “the word of our God endures forever” (Isa. 40:8). On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Brad Baurain, Associate Professor at MBI and our devotional author this month reminds us that God's Words are eternal, and they will be fulfilled or proved true. We can trust God’s Word absolutely.
On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, former NFL Player, Super Bowl Champion and philanthropist, Benjamin Watson joins us to talk about a new curriculum to help provide churches and individuals Stand for Life and believe that every person has inherent dignity and value. Stand for Life affirms and protects the dignity of all human life. It engages, educates and equips others to build a culture that believes everyone is made in the image of God, has inherent value and should be treated with dignity and respect.
Almost always when we study the lives of strong leaders we find that they have led a challenging life and struggled much, but with courageous faith. On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, writer and journalist Maina Mwaura noticed an intriguing pattern while interviewing hundreds of prominent leaders: many of them were deeply shaped by longtime Dallas Theological Seminary professor Howard Hendricks. Mwaura's new book, The Influential Mentor: How the Life and Legacy of Howard Hendricks Equipped and Inspired a Generation of Leaders combines the reality of struggle with the audacity of faith to empower others to lead in a manner worthy of Jesus Christ and His gospel.
