Teach Your Children About God

And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up - Deuteronomy 6: 6-7 (New Living …

A Free Man

So if the Son makes you free, then you will be truly free - John 8:36 I didn't think that anybody cared about me. Why should they? I was a lowlife. I ran with the wrong crowd. Got into trouble all of the time. Gave my poor Mama a lot of grief. My Dad left …

From Enemy to Friend

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good - Romans 12:20, 21 I'm looking at a photo of Jenn which was taken last summer.  …

The Raven

The raven, sleek and black, has always been depicted as a bird of ill omen, death and evil.  Yet, we see a different picture of this bird in the Bible.  God used ravens to feed his prophet, Elijah during the famine in Israel.  He sent Elijah to Kerith brook, east of the Jordan, instructing him, …

Dealing With Our Enemies

The angry voices in the crowd rose to a crescendo, "Crucify Him!" drowning out Pilate's protest.  They wanted Him dead.  They had delivered Him up and denied Him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go (Acts 3:13).  Yet, this was all in fulfillment of God's plan of salvation.  The innocent was put …

Motherhood

Dirty pampers.  Waking up at all hours to feed. Stressful days.  Fitful sleep.  The need for adult conversation.  Relief when Dad comes home and takes over.  You have time for yourself now.  You savor the moment.  You get to do what you want to do.   But you don't want her to grow up too fast. …

Serving

For as long as she could remember she loved inviting strangers to her home for a meal. She lived by these words, “Do not forget to entertain Strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained Angels.”   As she served them, she shared her faith.  She wanted them to know that there was a …

Starvation in Madaya

Many people in the world today are not starving because there is an inherent inability to produce food, they are starving because they are caught in the middle of political fights and blockades that have been used as weapons - Ralph Merkle I was appalled when I heard about the mother who was giving her 7 month …

A Mother’s Hidden Legacy

Naomi was a Christian.  She grew up praying to Jesus as a Friend and reading the Bible so that she could get to know Him better.  So great was her love for God that it was natural to believe that when she had children, she would pass on her faith to them.  However, things didn't turn …

God Provides

Psalm 104 Last week Sunday my family and I watched The Great Migration, part of BBC's Nature's Great Events series narrated by David Attenborough. It was set in the Serengeti.  Each year the Serengeti grasslands are teeming with wildebeest and zebra, making it a paradise for the predators that live there.  As long as these animals were around, …
