    22 Mar 2019 | 12:00 am

    King David wrote, "With flattering lips...they speak" (Psalm 12:2 NASB). Among salespeople who call on our business, an old tactic is to flatter us with our importance, the success of the business, or what great businesspersons we are. Don't let[…]

The Good Old Days

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

As I grow older, I reminisce about how times always seemed better in the past. King Solomon understood this issue when he wrote, “Don't long for ‘the good old days.’ This is not wise.” (Ecclesiastes 7:10, NLT)

However, consider that toilet paper wasn’t invented until 1857, relatively recent in the history of man.

Richard Russell compiled a list of basic living conditions in 1904, conditions familiar to my grandparents. When one longs for the good old days consider these facts:

Restaurant Automation

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I’ve covered the subject of automation several times.  I see how automation continues to increase.  A phrase I’ve adapted is “if something can be automated it will be.”  I ran across an article in Bloomberg about how HaiDiLao [DG1] International, owner of Hot Pot Restaurants, is developing robots to replace chefs and wait staff.  You can read the full article here: https://bit.ly/2FbTHGF

Grocery Delivery to Every Door

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I read a recent article about a partnership between Kroger and Nuro, a driverless car company, to deliver groceries to customers’ doors. As consumers we demand more convenient delivery of our products. Amazon offers quick delivery for a large number of items that show up at your house almost as soon as you order them. Target now offers same day delivery for some products. Many stores offer advanced ordering with curbside pickup, aiding convenience. In the future we are promised that our groceries will be easily delivered to our house.

Addictions and the Fall of the Mighty

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

 

Every day the news gives us more salacious allegations of malfeasance by high profile individuals. We shake our heads, wonder why, and act judgmental as we call for their heads. Frequently the issue is one of addiction.

We pass an alcoholic on the street and wonder how somebody ends up in that circumstance. Addiction starts with one step. Perhaps a 14-year-old snuck a few drinks from their parent’s liquor cabinet or engaged in underage drinking with friends at some social event. They became addicted to alcohol before they realized what they had experimented with. They probably can’t tell you the day it happened. Addictions are sneaky and can destroy anyone.

The Christmas Coin

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

            The Bible provides a very clear account of the birth of our Lord in human form. Interesting physical evidence also supports the validity of this birth that changed the world.  However, few connect coins to this event.  Archaeology unearthed a coin minted in 6 AD with an imprint that that records an astronomical event very much like the one the Bible tells.
