I have to say it – like the commercial jingle “State Farm is there”. My real life good neighbor, Rob Mullen, (literally across the street from my house) is my State Farm agent. This week I had to have my car towed due to mechanical problems. I called Rob to ask about the State Farm Roadside Assistance program and he not only got back to me quickly and with helpful information, he hand delivered a check to cover the cost of the towing to my house this evening.
It was only a small thing but it does demonstrate excellent service & gives me confidence that if something more significant comes up the jingle will be more than just words but a real promise of service.
It’s that time of year again. A time to start fresh. A time to make new (good) habits. One of those you might want to consider trying out is a Bible reading plan. You can start small (like a 5 day plan), try out a topic (like leadership or marriage), or an overview of the important stories and events. Like any good habit, the important thing is to start and stick with it.
To start the year, I’m going to try “God’s Glory and Your Purpose” a 5-day video devotional by John Piper. After that, I think I will do the 21-day study on leadership “NIV Once-a-Day Bible for Leaders“. How about you?

What can be said but “Wow”. If you ever wanted to see an example of someone’s pain and anguish being used to drive their passion and determination, here it is! Watching this, I am reminded of the verse in Genesis 50:20
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives

I found Brad’s post to be very compelling. He highlighted 12 points that are important for leaders if they are going to be authentic in how they lead. In a digital age authenticity is something that easily is lost. I believe the world needs more authentic leaders, ones that are true to themselves and those they are leading.
Here is a summary of his points, but check out the post, 12 Keys to Authentic Leadership, for full commentary.
Most all of these are hard to do consistently, but it in a society and culture where authenticity seems to be a dying characteristic, it is important to keep in front of us and moving in this direction. If we are not deliberate about it, the pressure to always have the right answer, look important, and show no weaknesses will set us up for sure failure.
