Rule #9, The Law of Magnetism

In John C Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, he discusses how people are attracted to particular organizations, associations or businesses.

Life is like a mosaic

There are all these pieces to life.  Work, play, children, family, charity and so on. God is like the parent (Imagine that, God the father!) who gives the child a bunch of stuff to just create something.  Have you ever done that with your children?  It’s amazing what they can make out of what appears …
