• Do you allow salespeople to snow you with flattery?

    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[…]

Accepting the Lord’s Closed Doors

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I have always found the conversation between Balaam and his donkey in scripture, very interesting. I pick up the conversation here: 

Then the angel of the Lord moved on ahead and stood in a narrow place where there was no room to turn, either to the right or to the left. When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat it with his staff. Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?”

Balaam answered the donkey, “You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.”

Getting Paid To Move?

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Many cities and states offer bonuses as in incentive for folks to move who work from home. Some states offer excellent quality of life and lower cost housing. I would avoid the higher tax states, the increased taxes will eat up any bonus.

Buy on Safe Websites

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Most of us occasionally buy a product on an unfamiliar website. We may think that it's not being run by scam artists; however, the reality is that some commerce websites are fake. They look for ways to defraud unsuspecting buyers on transactions.

A great resource is the scam advisor on this website:  https://www.scamadviser.com . All you have to do is type or cut-and-paste a website address into the appropriate box of the scam advisor.  The scam advisor will report whether the site is a high or low risk for fraud. 

The good news is that the scam advisor gives our site, www.Stevemarr.org , a “High trust - safe to use” rating.  As President Regan said, “Trust but verify.”

Drop Inefficiency

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

You may have seen the recent news reports about how British schools were dropping analog clocks.  They are replacing the clocks with those big and little hands with digital clocks because most students can't tell time the old way. Initially I was disgusted thinking about it.  “Good grief,” I thought, “is it true that kids can't read a clock face anymore?”  I wondered if the next step was to change Big Ben in England.

Then I wondered how important was it for somebody to know the time by reading the hands of clock?  Does it really matter whether they read the clock by hands or simply numbers? No. People don't need to keep time my way; they just need to keep time.
