Today, we will discuss how we can become intentional about harnessing this principle for our spiritual development. THE BIG IDEA: Your friends determine the direction and quality of your life.

A life hack is a new way of doing something that has a better result than your previous way of doing it. Doesn’t a better result sound inviting? What if there was a life hack that would move you from disgrace and to honor? Being honored at work or home sounds great, right? King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, had something to say about how to pursue a life of honor. THE BIG IDEA: Be humble or be humbled.

We live in a world that loves a shortcut. We look for the easy way all of the time. If we can get something faster, cheaper, and with as little stress as possible, we’ll go all in! However, God made us for something more. God created us and called us to do something important: work. THE BIG IDEA: Hard work, works.

THE BIG IDEA: Integrity is doing what you ought to do even if it costs you.
