Strengthen Your Stakes

Father And Teenage Son Putting Up Tent On Camping Trip

Picture it in your mind: a desert wind blowing sand around as the walls of a tent flap elude you. You need to stake down the walls so that the tent will stay in place. Stakes were what held the Israelites’ tents in place in the strong desert winds, which could take a tent and send it flying like a kite. The tent was

The Mystery of the Lamb

Baby Lamb on the floral field in springtime

From the beginning of Genesis (Genesis 4:4) to the end of the Bible (Revelation 22:3), there is a common theme: the Lamb. In Revelation 6, we read about the Lamb who sits in the midst of the throne, worshiped by all of heaven because the Lamb was worthy to take the book and open the seals therein. The most harmless of creatures, the object

Stick To The Plan

Empty path on the field going to christian cross

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 We often develop strategies, game plans, life plans—and then, at some obstacle or critical point, someone says, “Just stick to the plan!” It’s usually good advice. Life is always sending unexpected surprises, but praise

The Path

Hiking couple. Young people makes a hike in the woods. Active lifestyle, tourism. Tourist equipment.

My husband and I love to hike and try to find different places where we have never hiked before. One time, we were trying to follow what was supposed to be marked path and somehow lost the markings.

Sharpen Your Ax

A hatchet on a stump , on a green background.Ax, hatchet, axe.

If the ax is dull, and one does not sharpen the edge, then he must use more strength; but wisdom brings success. Ecclesiastes 10:10 When I was younger I used to take an ax and cut up firewood from the woods behind our house. The one thing I always did was sharpen my ax. A dull ax meant harder work chopping through fallen trees.

Starfish

Do you know if the arm of a starfish splits, then a new arm will grow to replace it? If a starfish is cut to pieces, then each piece that is part of the central disc will grow into a new starfish. Some shell fishermen noticed this when they found that the place where they usually stored the shells was crowded with starfish. The

The Good Shepherd

Zhinvali village Mtskheta-Mtianeti Georgia - October 21 2016: Shepherd with crook riding a horse and herding a group of sheep

In Israel, we often see goats and sheep roaming the countryside. Driving through rural Israel often involves suddenly stopping to allow a herd of sheep or goats to cross the road. But interestingly, I have never seen “sheep kill” on the side of the road in all the years that I’ve lived in Israel. It’s because sheep don’t roam without a shepherd! The Lord

people, relationship difficulties, conflict and family concept - unhappy couple having argument at home

You can try to disguise your identity by changing your looks, your social circle and your address. But how you speak will give you away every time. It happened to Peter. When a servant girl saw him warming himself by the fire, she said, “‘You…were with Jesus of Nazareth.’ But he denied it…and the girl saw him again and began to say to those

I don’t know about you, but it seems that the tests we’re going through are getting harder and harder. Do you remember when you took tests in high school? At the time they may have seemed hard. But imagine if you had to take an elementary school test when you were in high school. You’d probably think—oh this is so simple. So if it seems
