Desire vs. Want with the Teachable Spirit

What is the difference between desire and want? What word bridges the gap between desire and want? How can the definition help the teachable spirit? Recently, I have been reading a marvelous book entitled A Happy Pocket Full of Money written by David Cameron Gikandi, who happens to be from Kenya. Among other things, David Cameron Gikandi was a creative consultant on “The Secret,” a 2006 bestselling film documentary based on Rhonda Byrne’s book of the same title. He defines “want” as: to be without; lack to be destitute or needy a defect of character; a fault to be absent to be deficient or lacking to fail; not to be sufficient to fall or come short; to lack When you want something, he states, this is what the universe gives you–absence...

Alone with the Teachable Spirit

How can you be happy alone? What does the teachable spirit need to do to create happiness when you are alone? These are very difficult questions to answer, especially if we are busy people that have families and care for children. My life is serene now compared to what it was in the days when family was the focus; however, the work I was doing in my family’s life at that time would have benefited from answering these two questions. The scripture says, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Do you see that loving yourself is the foundation for loving your neighbor? The care that you take in meeting your own needs will be the same care you take in meeting those closest to you. Yeshua (Jesus) told a story in reference to this concept: And behold, a lawyer stood up...

Progress with the Teachable Spirit

How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight? –Deuteronomy 32:30 Why is it that doing the work by yourself takes such a long time? What is it about teaming up with another teachable spirit that causes the work to progress far more quickly? Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has no one else to lift him up! –Ecclesiastes 4:9-10   Meeting Dr. Jeff Kahrs in August 2013 became a watershed of events in the life of the teachable spirit. Originally, I was pursuing my work in Kenya alone. I never considered whether I should do it any other way; to me, that was just the way it was. Honestly, I had...

Stewardship with the Teachable Spirit

Attending a real estate seminar recently, the teachable spirit learned that owning property could create vulnerability and can lead to unwanted responsibility. For example, an owner is responsible for paying real estate taxes to the government and can potentially be sued for liability should an individual injure themselves on the premises. Thinking about this idea juxtaposed with the thought that in all reality, we take nothing with us when we leave this world, so how can we own anything anyway, what came to mind was the story of Joseph. I always thought Joseph was a wealthy man, but in thinking about it with this idea in mind, I realized that, honestly, he was an employee of the state. Now Joseph was governor over the land. He was the one who sold [grain] to all...
