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 […]

Don’t Be Fooled

Beware of Satan! It can be so easy to get caught up in his web of lies and deceit. He has a way of fooling us into his way of thinking and seeing things his way. He will entice and make things look, feel and seem fabulous until you are fully in it; then, the […]

Suddenly God

Are you acquainted with our “Suddenly God”? Throughout the Bible, our Lord intervened suddenly in the middle of horrific circumstances as well as in daily life. Our God has a never-ending supply of sudden breakthroughs for all His children. God knows we certainly need them! Do you need wisdom, healing, strength, insight or provision? Whatever […]

It Will Pass

Grief is a powerful emotion. It comes in many different stages and may take years to get through them all. Thankfully, we have God to get us through these difficult times in our lives. We go through many deaths in our lives; loved ones pass away, failed relationships, financial destruction, sickness/illness and probably the worst […]

Stinkin Thinkin

What are your first thoughts as the new day dawns? Let me guess. Thinking about everything you must do that day, how am I going to get these bills paid, what happens if I don’t get this job, how can I get my kids to like me? So much worry and over thinking will drive […]

Don’t Panic

From a line in the song “Just Be Held” by Casting Crowns, “your world is not fallen apart, it is fallen into place.” How true is this? We panic when things are not going our way. We think, “Oh my! If this doesn’t happen then this won’t happen.” Or, “This and that is wrong, how are we going to do this?” What we believe […]
