A 1,000 Choices Along the Way
There are always choices to make if you want to follow God's way. A thousand little decisions: to hold your tongue, to switch the channel, to make an effort. In the end, our choices become the daily spiritual...
A Christian Father's Vision
Men like to watch. They like to watch sports or sit on the porch and watch cars go by. My father-in-law used to like sitting in his rocker and watch his children talk and interact with each other while...
A Shred of Doubt
Have you ever noticed that Paul the Apostle never mentions visiting his victims? Paul, before his conversion, was the chief persecutor of the church. He himself says that: he imprisoned Christians (Acts...
Abstinence vs. Moderation
There is a saying that goes, "All things in moderation." The idea is that so long as you are moderate it's okay to try anything. The more accurate saying is, "All things permissible in moderation," since...
Angry Skies
Dear Lord, I know why these things happen and that they happen even to us, your children. We are always in your hands and for better or worse, we continue to trust in you. This was the prayer our family...
Baseball Blues
I wonder just how much children really enjoy their parents' presence at their games. I sat among a group of moms and dads recently who had turned out to cheer on their kids at a school baseball tournament...
Before You Say "Why Not"
When faced with a decision to do something or get involved in some scheme or plan, people sometimes base their choice on the popular saying "why not?" When they cannot make up their minds they jump into...
Best of Both Worlds
At the end of the third chapter of Ecclesiastes, Solomon concludes that the greatest blessing God gives to man on earth is the ability to enjoy the "…fruit of his labor…" (Ecclesiastes 3...
Beyond "An Eye for an Eye"
The recent suicide bombings in Israel continue the rapid disintegration of both the Israeli and Palestinian people. The bomber surely caused a moment of malevolent satisfaction among the oppressed Palestinians...
Blessing or Bait?
Author Robert Morely says that the main rule for catching bass is letting the fish run with the bait. You want to make sure that the fish feels no resistance so it will think it has the worm with "no...
Blind Love
In the tenth chapter of his gospel, Mark describes a scene where Jesus heals a blind man who had been desperately calling out to Him for help. Once restored of his vision, the evangelist says that the...
Bringing Your Friend to Christ
I have noticed something about our teens lately that is quite encouraging: they are not ashamed of us. Going to church, singing spiritual songs, being among so many adults, this is not exactly cool. Yet...
Christ Lovers
You can always spot them, the Christ lovers. I think it has something to do with gravity. If left alone, those who love the Lord will continually move towards Him and those things that concern Him. A...
Clinging Faith
I wondered what to do as the elderly saint before me struggled with the ravages of old age. It seems that when a situation makes no sense, we, in some way, have to create sense out of it. The last days...
Common Ground
Every election produces a catchphrase that summarizes the political objectives of one party or the other. FDR's "New Deal" or Lyndon Johnson with the "Great Society" are examples to which it seems President...
Dare You
In Ephesians 3:20, Paul says that God can do more than we dare ask. Have you ever wondered why we usually are timid in the things we ask God for? Perhaps some of the reasons: 1. Too Much Change We don...
Dealing with Pain at Christmas
Perhaps the reason why Christmas time is "special" is because, for some reason or other, everything seems more intense at Christmas. We spend more, eat more, take off work days. Being in love at Christmas...
Decisions, Decisions
According to various studies people make about 612 decisions each day. Some are involuntary where the brain sends messages to your body to follow through on and others are voluntary because you have to...
