Off the Handle

“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness that God requires” (James 1:19–20). Wow is this an issue for me! It doesn’t take much for me to go off the handle and I must ask myself […]

Worth It

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, […]

You Will Get There

Exodus 3:12 Have you ever met someone that their life seems so perfect? Have you ever wondered why you don’t have that big white house with the picket fence, the perfect kids that are in college being perfect, or that awesome marriage that seems so loving and joyful? There are times when I look at […]

Next Big Thing

Every time Apple announces they are releasing the next version of the iPhone, you see people waiting in lines for hours and sometimes days. People are so excited for the next big thing. I wonder why people weren’t sitting at the tomb just waiting for the rock to move when Jesus had told many people that He would be resurrected? At least the […]

Good Friday

You came for criminals and every phariseeYou came for hypocrites, even one like meYou carried sin and shame the guilt of every manThe weight of all I’ve done nailed into Your hands Oh, Your love bled for meOh, Your blood in crimson streams. Oh, Your death is hell’s defeatA cross meant to kill is my […]

Would You Rather

Matthew 18:12–14 Have you ever played the “Would You Rather Game”? It’s a great game to pass the time when you are traveling with antsy kids; that’s when I started playing it. For example, I would ask my kids, “Would you rather be stuck in this car for 2 hours or cleaning the garage?” Their […]

Tight-Fist

“I’ve matched your tight-fisted stinginess by decreeing a season of drought, drying up fields and hills, withering gardens and orchards, stunting vegetables and fruit. Nothing – not man or woman, not animal or crop – is going to thrive.” Then the governor, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and the high priest, Joshua son of Jehozadak, and all […]

Wiser

“Here is another bit of wisdom that has impressed me as I have watched the way our world works. There was a small town with only a few people, and a great king came with his army and besieged it. A poor, wise man knew how to save the town, and so it was rescued. […]

Refills

Not long ago, I had my grands at a local restaurant. Like all kids, they finish their drinks long before the meal comes. They looked disappointed like I would say no to another drink; I reminded them, “It’s ok. They have free refills”. Those words totally changed their moods from distraught to giggling. They were […]

Yes Person

Are you a “yes” person at church or work? Too many times I see 20% of the people doing 100% of the work. Why? Because it needs to be done and you know how important it is to the organization. Just because you can do a job that needs done, doesn’t mean that is what God gifted and called you too. One thing […]
