    How Can Slavery Be Worse Now Than Ever Before?

    That is a question that I sit and wrestle with on a daily basis... It tears at my heart and should tear at yours too!  We would all like to think that this is something that is just an ugly part of our past, but the truth is slavery and human trafficking are at all time highs, nearly 46 million people are trapped in slavery and today is set aside for those of us who have a voice to speak up and speak out for those who cannot.  

    Today is set aside to 'Shine A Light On Slavery', while we may have excused ourselves from speaking up in the past because "we had no idea it was this bad!", there is now no longer an excuse.  I know that I may being direct, but I have witnessed and heard the horror stories from victims of human trafficking from all over the world, and yes, that includes right here at home, in the good ol' USA.  

    So please take a New York minute and check out the End It Movement website and see how ministries, K-LOVE artists and celebrities are helping to #EndIt ! Join the fight, lift your voice and pray that freedom rings!

    You are a leader...Yes, You!

    All to often, we view leaders as those who hold an office or have a title like CEO, senator, president, executive producer, general manager, director, even pastor, but the reality is YOU are a leader, you don't need to hold an office or have a title.

    In fact, research by sociologists shows that even the 'most introverted' person on the planet will influence 10,000 people in their lifetime... That makes YOU a leader! Leadership expert, John Maxwell, describes leadership as 'influence', and when given a few minutes, we can all come up with a pretty good list of the people who have influenced our lives, most of them never held an office or had a title; and you can be sure that you are showing up on someone else's list.

    I would venture to say that with the advent of the internet and social media, our sphere of influence is perhaps greater than any generation in human history, which is why it is important that we realize that we are ALL leaders. This revelation isn't one that should puff us up, and turn us into a bunch of egomaniacs, rather it should humble us and cause us to respect the position that we have.  In Disney's "The Lion King", Mufasa instructs his son, that there is more to being king (leader) than getting your own way, he reminds him that, "With great power comes great responsibility".

    The greatest leader of all time was Jesus, he showed us that leadership is not about 'lording it over' others, but rather serving them sacrificially.  As  Christians, we all are called to lead lead like Jesus, you're called to be an example, because other people are looking up to you.  Pastor Nicky Gumble puts it so well, "To be called by God to influence others is an enormous privilege, but it carries with it great responsibility."

    My hope is that this will remind you just how precious you are; God chose you to represent him here on Earth, he chose you to influence people everyday, he chose you to be a leader.

    A MUST READ If You're A Star Wars Fan!

    There is a whole new reason to take a trip to our favorite galaxy far, far away! If you're a Star Wars geek like myself, you love seeing that there is another story to fill in some of the gaps in the Star Wars story line, and this new movie will help answer questions about one of our favorite characters ever, Han Solo!  

     

    The ONLY bummer is that we'll have to wait until sometime in 2018 to see the movie!
