Time To Fill Up

There are two types of drivers in this world – those who fill up their car with gas when it’s still half full and those who wait until the level is so low that their dashboard light goes on… and then they guess how many more miles they can get before running out of fuel! [...]

Not So Common

You lead a common life. Punctuated by occasional weddings, job transfers, bowling trophies, and graduations—a few highlights—but mainly it’s the day-to-day rhythm you share with the majority of humanity. Do commoners rate in heaven? Does God love common people? God answers these questions in a most uncommon fashion. If the word common describes you, take [...]

Come to Me

There is a correlation between the way you feel about yourself and the way you feel about others. If you are at peace with yourself you will get along with others. The converse is also true. If you don’t like yourself, if you are ashamed, embarrassed, or angry, other people are going to know it. [...]

FREE TO BE HONEST

My high school baseball coach had a firm rule against chewing tobacco and he wanted to draw it to our attention. He got our attention all right.  Before long we’d all tried it! It was a sure test of manhood. One day I’d just popped a plug in my mouth when one of the players [...]

I’ve Got It All In Hand

People often need to be able to explain a tragedy “For He “has put everything under His feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under Him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ.” ‭‭(1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:27‬) Tragic things can happen to anyone. How we respond [...]

God, Our Refuge

Refuge is a favorite word of David’s. You will count as many as forty-plus appearances in some versions of the Bible. But never did David use the word more poignantly than in Psalm 57. The introduction to the passage explains its background…“A song of David when he fled from Saul into the cave.” Lost in [...]

How Much is Enough?

“For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:14-15).   Picture your enemy tied to a whipping post. How many lashes? How much justice is enough? As your foe slumps [...]

Forgiveness Can Bring Freedom

Colossians 3:13 says, “As Christ forgave you, so you also must do.” Really, God? Begin the process of freedom. How? Well, keep no list of wrongs. Pray for your antagonists rather than plot against them. Hate the wrong without hating the wrongdoers. Turn your attention away from what they did to you to what Christ did for you. [...]

More Sponge, Less Rock

Make God’s presence your passion. How? Be more sponge and less rock.    Put a rock in the ocean, and what happens? It’s surface gets wet. The exterior may change color, but the interior remains untouched. Yet place a sponge in the ocean, and notice the change. It absorbs the water. The ocean penetrates every [...]

Trusting God Is Good for Your Health

“I said to myself, ‘Relax, because the Lord takes care of you’” (Psalm 116:7). God has given you the gift of your body, and it comes with an owner’s manual: the Bible. In it are all the instructions you need to take care of yourself and live a long life. You already know the basics: [...]
