Highlights from the 36th Annual Rabbi’s Conference: “How To Change Your Behavior”
By Steve Weiler
How to recognize when your behavior needs change?–Family, friends, congregation, and ADONAI’s Word will tell you. Your reputation and private behavior will affect your ministry.
Steps in order to change–Recognize that a change is needed and prepare to change. There are resources to help you. Consider the barriers that may surface to prevent change. Remember, most of the time, we can’t change ourselves. ADONAI has to change us. Pray Scripture that deals with the solution, rather than the problem. You don’t have to pressure yourself to change. ADONAI will change you. Your job is to pray His Word. Expect that the power of ADONAI’s Word, which will dwell in you so strongly, will push out sins and behavioral issues. Without hope and expectation, change can not come, so check your attitude.

“Making the Most of Your Time”
by Rabbi Cal Goldberg
Time is free, but it is priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.
Ephesians 5:15-17–“Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the L-RD is…”
Each of us has been given 168 hours in a week. About 70 hours are spent eating and sleeping which leaves us with about 100 hours in any given week to do the works of the One who called us. Would more time in a week make a difference in our lives? Surely the extra time would relieve us of many of the daily pressures of life. Right?
There is enough time every week to accomplish all that we need to do if we live according to ADONAI’s priorities and learn how to manage our time accordingly. There are basically 7 areas of priority: Our relationship with ADONAI, our spouse, our family, our ministry, our health, our finances, and our social life. Our goal should be to find a balance in each one of these, so we will know how to make the most of our time. When we live our lives according to godly priorities, decision making will be easier. We must say no to things that do not line up with ADONAI’s priorities. The bad news is…Time flies. The good news is…You’re the pilot.

“Growing a Healthy Congregation”
Encouragement comes with the belief that progress and change is possible, and we must be renewed regularly by hearing the Word of G-d. We need to speak to lift people up and not tear them down. Discouragement comes when our vision begins to dim and we give up. Ants don’t, but people do.
Spiritual health of a congregation should consist of a “Team Spirit.” Are we working just for ourselves, or are we working together to help one another to be an over comer; because we all are the Children of G-d. The congregation should have an urgent and compelling vision to preach the Good News.
Guard unity diligently, even love can not make everyone happy. Yeshua must be first. He is the Senior Rabbi and must be lifted up and exalted. Emphasize the reality of a personal presense of the Holy Spirit that makes Yeshua real. The Spirit gives life. The standard of G-d’s Word lifted up with no compromise. G-d desires obedience to His Word and not just knowledge. Truth of G-d’s Word transforms the believer. By: Rabbi Jeff Foreman.
