As the son of a great man that has left an awesome legacy, i often hear how much i look like, sound like, walk like, etc. etc. so on and so on like my father. Its not anything that I try to do, it just comes natural because we were always around each other.
I can remember vividly being in the lobby of a hotel in Chicago watching guest of the hotel go in and out…. If some one wanted to leave or enter the hotel, the hotel was kind enough to have positioned at the door “a door opener”… If someone needed luggage removed or placed in there vehicle, he was there to assist…. If someone needed a taxi, he was there to assist…. If traffic got a little to hectic around the under passage of the hotel he was there to assist…
The interesting thing is, despite him assisting these people, very few stopped to thank him for the services he provided, and even fewer stopped to thank him monetarily (Put money in his hand)….
Which made me think…. How many people have opened significant doors in my life that I have yet to thank or Bless??
So often as leaders we tend to think that our abilities got us in the door, when in all honesty it was the favor of God shown to us through the person holding the door open….
Make it a priority to honor those who open doors for you…. I Love the way Dr. Mike Murdock who has been a long term family friend explain it.. “ Seeds of Honor, can create a harvest for the future you desire”…
If you desire to walk through great doors….. Bless the person who opened the door for you….
Two lions get into a fight. They are the same weight, height, and length They have the same deposition and they both fight to the end.
Which will Win??
The one that eats the most. Our flesh and Spirit are very similar and are at war with each other everyday. Whichever you feed the most is going to win.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy Faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. Jude 1:20

Over the last couple of days I’ve had the opportunity to check out and use the new Logos 5 software, and for those unfamiliar with Logos, it’s a PC- and Mac-compatible Bible research software package that makes it easy to access thousands of books, commentaries, journal articles, lexicons, Bible translations, and more through your computer, phone, and/or tablet.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the application was it’s user friendly interface, which is very helpful when utilizing multiple versions of the Bible at the same time. I also found the navigation drop bar located on the left hand side in the home page very easy to maneuver and lead me from page to page. My favorite tool of the app would have to be the Bible Facts resource located under the Bible reference bar. As a Pastor who teaches 3-4 times a week and spends countless hours in sermon preparation mode, this tool is invaluable!
Overall I found this particular software product to be very useful because it allows you to take so much information virtually anywhere in the palm of your hand. Which saves me time, and a lot of shoulder pain from lugging around tons of books. Below is a break out of my pros and cons of the software as a whole.
*Pulls together all the necessary tools to dive deeper in the Word of God.
*Customizable to your specific likings.
*You can add other resources to your portfolio.
*Allows you to save time and travel lighter.
*Tons of different Bible Versions.
*Helpful and applicable commentaries.
*Sometimes the resources are slow to load.
*Some of the features are difficult to grasp and learn quickly.
With that being said I give the Logos 5 software 4 out of 5 stars for its overall usability! For more information on this product visit them at
