Bible Study for the 21st Century

Bible Study Reimagined
If you’re anything like me you’re always looking for the latest in greatest technology tools to help you do what you do better, easier, faster, etc. When it comes to studying the Bible, I have found just that tool.

I have been using Logos for over four years. Last year it got even better when they upgraded the platform from version 3 to 4. They also have a Mac version, which I’m most excited about. You can even access your Logos library across multiple computers or remotely using a free iPhone app.

I definitely wouldn’t call myself an expert in Bible study technology, but it would be hard for me to imagine a more comprehensive, technologically-advanced, clicker tool than Logos. If you don’t believe me, check out all the “expert” product reviews… http://www.logos.com/press/reviews.

Study Passionately!

Amplify the Exceptional in Your Life!

This is article #4 coinciding with the release of my book, Dream B.I.G. in 3D: How to Pursue a Bold, Innovative, God-Inspired Life! Enjoy!

Every day countless conversations, music, pictures and data travel through the air all around us using radio waves. This happens without you even noticing or thinking about it. Some of the thousands of ways all this stuff is transmitted include cell phones, TV, AM/FM radio, cordless phones, garage door openers, wireless networks, radio-controlled toys, GPS, Satellite communications, and police radios (Source: howstuffworks.com).

radio towerOften mixed in with all this communication is a bombardment of negative conversations, words, images, and other adverse influences. Although good things are happening, it often seems like negative messages far outnumber positive ones in terms of what we hear and see. If you’re not careful you can get overwhelmed with the bad things that are happening in the world, with your family and friends, and particularly in your own life.

To take advantage of any type of communication, you need the right tool to receive it, whether that’s a cell phone, TV, radio, etc. But even after you get the right device, you have to turn on the power, tune in to the right frequency and turn up the volume to clearly hear what you desire.

This same process applies to your life. With so much negativity going around, you have to be intentional about tuning in and turning up the volume from positive messages and people. I want to reiterate something from my last post, Eject the Junk from Your Life: Improve the quality of your life by shifting your focus to people and things that are excellent, encouraging, exciting, energizing, and empowering!

Lock in your attention and appetite on what’s outstanding, extraordinary, marvelous and wonderful. Even if it doesn’t impact you directly, it will enhance your life when you acknowledge and celebrate those things happening with others. Amplify the exceptional to keep from getting drowned out by the depressing!

Sometimes you just need to remember the exceptional things that have happened and are happening in your life…

In Sync?

no-move1I wrote a post 2 days ago in my other blog, Biznovations.net, about my new adventures with a Blackberry Bold and social networking technology. I really enjoy working/playing with my new toy/mobile telecommunications device.

One of the proclaimed features of the Bold is software that is supposed to synchronize the information on my phone with the information on my MacBook, including my email, contacts, calendar, tasks, bookmarks, iTunes, photos, etc. The reason that I say “supposed to” is that I haven’t been able to get it to work properly.

The total time I’ve spent trying to get this thing to synchronize is probably a couple of hours, considering all the research and troubleshooting that I’ve done including: reading the user manual; playing with the phone settings; resetting the phone by taking the battery out and putting it back in; posting my problem in the online support forum; Googling web sites with potential solutions posted by others having the same issues as me.

And guess what… it still doesn’t work! So for now I’ve resigned myself to just dealing with it and hope a new software solution will come out soon that will synchronize my mobile life.

This whole process has been very frustrating. I was even more frustrated when I thought about all of the time that I had wasted for something that was a preference more than a necessity. A thought then occurred to me: How much time do I spend synchronizing the most important things in my life? Am I in sync with my wife? Am I in sync with my children? Am I in sync with God’s expectations for me?

These essential elements of my life are much more important than my phone and laptop. However, sometimes it’s easy to fall into a rut where I’m more focused on me than other things. I realize that I get very frustrated when I invest more time in synchronizing my technology than I do in synchronizing the most critical and essential areas of my life.

How about you? Where are you out of sync? How much time do you invest getting in sync with what’s most important?

Check back on my next post to learn how to avoid the same kind of results in your life that I had with my phone and laptop. Until then… thrive on purpose!
