I just finished a business book that I would recommend.
It is called "Love is the killer app" by Tim Sanders. Its all about sharing. Sharing your knowledge, sharing your network and sharing your compassion. The "big thought" relayed in this book is; by sharing all of these freely you become such a resource for everyone around you, you can not help but be successful...and happy.
We are not cisterns made for hoarding, we are channels made for sharing.
4 I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, 5 because I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and all the saints, 6 and I pray that the sharing of your faith may promote the knowledge of all the good that is ours in Christ. 7 For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.

How true it is that we can not do a thing about yesterday..or tomorrow. Our time is today. We all get the same 24 hours. No time management, it marches on with or without us. Personal management, what WE CHOOSE to do matters. Choose wisely!
34 “So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

We are a prideful people. But what can be wrong with telling your children you are proud of them? Not a thing! Its when we get caught up in "self pride" thinking we are all that and a bag of chips..... it takes talent to catch fish that small!
Have a sage mind and study the proverbs..
Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
Henry Ward Beecher

Sirach 3:17–18, 20, 28–29
My child, conduct your affairs with humility, and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts. Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God. What is too sublime for you, seek not, into things beyond your strength search not. The mind of a sage appreciates proverbs, and an attentive ear is the joy of the wise. Water quenches a flaming fire, and alms atone for sins.

How Big is your faith?
Sometimes in our life we question how and why things may happen, and even may question our faith. Hang on to the faith you have, even if its only a mustard seed!
Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.
The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” The Lord replied, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.
