Doing Good Always

And do not forget to do good and share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Hebrews 13:16

When was the last time you sacrificed something for yourself to give it to someone who really needed it.

No I don’t mean that you gave some $$ to a beggar on the street corner.

I mean when did you go hungry because you offered your lunch to someone who was even hungrier than you were.

When was the last time you saw a single parent who was struggling to get by and you offered to fill up their gas tank, or buy their groceries?

When was the last time you paid for lunch the person behind you in line?

All of these things count as doing good for others.

But let’s not stop there.

What else can you think of that would be doing good for others?

How about sharing a verse with them? Or simply being there to listen when they are going through a hard time? Or being supportive even when you might not agree with their ideas?

That’s enough questions for right now.

God loves it when we do things for others, especially out of our own poverty.  

Yes we all have poverty,  it might not be financial poverty, it might be love poverty, or food poverty, or spiritual poverty.

There are many different types of poverty.

Poverty doesn’t just mean Money $$$! 

God also loves it when we share out of our abundance.

Ok God Loves it when we share!

That’s why we try so hard to teach our kids to share at such young ages.  

In fact, when was the last time you watched a young child?

I have a nephew, he is pretty awesome, and funny.  

The other day he was over at our house and one of my kids asked him if would share something with them.

He turned around and looked at him then said, “No” he proceeded to turn around and walk off.

Shortly afterwards, my son walked back over to him and asked, “hey can I use that for a second?”

His answer was considerably different. He looked at him, stared him up and down and said, “sure thing sir.” 

I literally laughed out loud.

All too often we have the first mind set when it comes to sharing anything.

We are afraid that someone else is going to “use it all up” before we can use as much as we want.

The truth is that if everyone has the second attitude, or others are just “borrowing” then we are much more willing to share everything.

Next time you see someone in need, think of it as if they are not taking it from you.  You will not miss out by sharing what you have with them, they are simply borrowing what God gave you.


Hey there God, It’s Me here.  I am so glad that I get to come to you in prayer today!  Thank you for not limiting the amount that we can come to you in prayer!  God today I want to ask a MAJOR favor of you.  Will you please help me not to be selfish!  I know I’m pretty bad at it some days. God I also ask that help to make me more SELFLESS. Help me to not be afraid to give everything that I have to someone who needs it.  Help me to be as trusting as a sparrow, or any animal for that matter.  Help me to know that you love me so much that you will always give me exactly what I need.  God I pray that you open my eyes so that I can see what you need me to give as well who you need me to give it to.  God thank you for everything that you give me, help me to give it all to someone else who needs it more than I do. God today I want to say thank you for everything, the air I breathe, the water I drink, the food I eat, all the luxuries that I forget are luxuries, like power, indoor plumbing, vehicles, you name it.

Thank you

A Little More

 The other day I got a call from one of our clients.

I love talking to our clients so I always smile when I answer the phone.

“Hey Dan, one of my drivers is pulled over and they are saying that our permit doesn’t cover what we weigh. Isn’t that why we hire your team to make sure that these things don’t happen!”

My smile immediately vanished.

I was shocked because my team is amazing. and it’s not like them to miss something like 20,000 lbs on a permit.

So, I asked him, “Who have you been working with, and who was the one who called our team to get the permit?” 

To get to the bottom of the problem I needed the details.

They gave me the details.

My next call was to my team. Then after I got the details I got them started on getting new permits to get the problem fixed. I’m a solutions guy, not an excuses guy.

But I NEED to know the real reason why it happened so that we can fix the issue.

My next call was to the driver so that I could see exactly what happened.

I knew he was going to be upset. He was pulled over and they were going to give him a HUGE ticket. I wouldn’t be happy either.


I made sure not to smile when I made the call.  I had a serious look on my face. As we chatted I learned that he was the person who gave his weight to our team. I asked where he got the weights from and how in the world they were off by over 20K lbs!

That’s when he told me that he might have gotten the wrong scale ticket from the weigh station where he originally weighed.

Immediately my heart leapt with joy, this is NOT our fault!

Now to get the problem resolved and get this driver back on the road was my only goal.  I was not going to assign blame or make anyone feel bad. 

Hey, we all make mistakes. I do it multiple times every single day.

The owner of the company shot me a text. I'm getting permits from the big guys. They won’t make these mistakes that cost me time and $$$$$.

No problem.  Let me know if you need anything. We are here to help.


After they called the “BIG Guys” they called me about 30 minutes later.

Hey, we can’t get an Idaho permit until Monday. It’s Friday night. And we need to drop this load off tomorrow afternoon.

I told him that I would NOT make any promises.

But my team went to work!

Guess what????

We got the permits that the “BIG Guys” couldn’t get.

My team had the Idaho permit in less than 20 minutes. For the right weight this time.

Here’s the point of all this.

When things don’t go right, smile. I have taught my whole team this.

That right there is how we got the permits. They smiled as they worked and it didn’t take any time at all.

Ok, there might be a little knowledge that went into this too. Lol

Next time you need anything DOT, don’t call the “Big Guys” , call the team who can get it done!
