"goTandem" What It is? And How It Works ?

About goTandem
What is goTandem?

Everyday life is busy. And as a result, our spiritual lives are often neglected. But that doesn’t have to be the case. With goTandem, you’ll receive customized biblical content based on your unique spiritual needs, designed specifically to move you closer to Jesus on a daily basis.

The term for all that is Bible Engagement. Such engagement occurs when we receive what the Bible says, reflect on its meaning and respond accordingly with our actions. And after more than 7 years of research, we’ve learned that it has the biggest impact on our lives – in overcoming temptation, building healthier relationships, and having hope in uncertainty – when we begin considering bits of Scripture throughout the day, at least four days a week. More is better. Less is significantly worse.

That might seem like a lot, but with goTandem, it is manageable. Providing a personalized experience with the Bible, goTandem delivers meaningful content directly to you, exactly when you need it. Each message is designed to help strengthen and encourage you by taking an honest look at what the Bible says and how applying it moves you closer to Christ.
Who is behind goTandem?

goTandem is the direct result of a group of researchers, artists, tech wizards and writers coming together to develop a way to deliver the promises of the Bible into our everyday lives. While our ages, backgrounds and experiences are all very different, each of us has committed to spending our days in the pursuit of becoming more like Jesus. We’re probably a lot like you, actually. We have our ups and downs, and we have a hard time engaging the Bible every day. But after our research experts proved that daily Bible engagement is the absolute best tool God’s given us for our spiritual journey, we decided to create something that could come alongside people to help them engage the Bible – throughout the day, every day. And that’s how goTandem was born.
How it Works.

Have a Good and Godly Day. :-)

Speaking Without Anger

For this reason the king was angry and very furious, and gave the command to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.  So the decree went out, and they began killing the wise men; and they sought Daniel and his companions, to kill them. Then with counsel and wisdom Daniel answered Arioch, the captain of the king’s guard, who had gone out to kill the wise men of Babylon. (Daniel 2:12-14)

Speaking Without Anger

Anger has become a major problem in our society, especially when associated with driving.  Between 1990 and 1997, 2, 50,000 people were killed in traffic accident.  The U. S. Department of Transportation estimates that two-thirds of these road fatalities were caused by drivers who were angry.  They not only lost their temper, but they lost their lives as well.

When Daniel was confronted with the king’s edict, it could have given way to anger.  The King’s demands were unreasonable.  Who ever heard of telling the dream as well as giving the interpretation?  Furthermore, it was unfair.  Why destroy all the wise men when not everyone had been given the opportunity to redeem himself?  But Daniel knew better than to give way to such futile passions.  Instead, he answered with “counsel and wisdom.”

To his credit, Daniel first sought information.  He checked out the facts to find out what lay behind this seemingly unreasonable edit.  Then he spoke with wisdom.  Daniel took the time to understand the situation and then offered a practical solution that would both meet the king’s need and save the lives of many innocent people.

Anger can be terribly devastating, especially for Christians.  Not only do they suffer the same consequences unbelievers do when they lose their temper, but they also tarnish their testimony before a watching world.

If you struggle with anger, learn to seek counsel and then speak with wisdom.  Get the facts straight.  Give yourself time to think about the consequences of your anger.  And then, rather than waste your energy on a fit of rage and bring shame to the Lord, as God to show you how you can resolve the situation for His glory.

Anger isn’t always wrong, but it’s seldom profitable.
