10 Questions For A New Year

Once, when the people of God had become careless in their relationship with Him, the Lord rebuked them through the prophet Haggai. “Consider your ways!” (Haggai 1:5) He declared, urging them to reflect on some of the things happening to them, and to evaluate their slipshod spirituality in light of what God had told them.

1 Corinthians 13: A Christmas Version

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love, I’m just another decorator. If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love, I’m just another cook. If I work at the soup kitchen,

Another Crisis

As we’ve been watching the news recently, it seems the word of the hour is crisis. It seems everywhere we turn, we hear that word. It’s a financial crisis. A political crisis. An international crisis. An environmental or spiritual crisis. I came across an interesting fact recently. The Chinese word for crisis is composed of two symbols.

Our Instructions

“Give thanks to the Lord. Call on His name. Make known among the nations what He has done.” Psalm 105:1 This verse is very simple, yet it contains statements that can be very difficult to do. 1.

“Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.” 1Corinthians 4:5 There was a man who had four sons. He wanted them to learn to not judge things too quickly, so he sent them each on a

Taking Credit

One constant pitfall we must watch for is taking credit for something that God does in or through us, or using the gifts and callings of God for self-exaltation. In that light, it may be easier to handle poverty, weakness, or insignificance, than wealth, ability, power or authority, since poverty and frailty are not normally things we boast about, and they cause us to

Equal

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…” These words were penned by America’s founding fathers to ensure that all men would have equal rights under the law, and would not be under the thumb of a

We All Stumble

King David is called a “man after God’s own heart.” Considering that he lusted after his neighbor’s wife, committed adultery with her, and had her husband murdered, the Lord’s description of him is remarkable. How could a man who was convicted a murderer and an adulterer also be called one after God’s own heart? The answer is simple but profound: God did not regard
