Wasting time with God

I have been reading “The Gift of being Yourself” by David Benner.  I read the following quote this morning:   What God wants is simply our presence, even if it feels like a waste of potentially productive time.  That is what friends do together – they waste time with each other.  Simply being together is …

We Need To Be The Solution

As the church we are grieved by the abortions of 50 million babies and endless wave of teenage pregnancy.  We are appalled by the specter of beaten women and children.  We often speak out about these things.  However we need to be more than opposed to something, we need to be/have solutions.

Will We Sail the Ship?

As I have been growing in my understanding of what it means to be a leader in my home,  I have been burdened for men in the church.  It seems that many of the ills our society and our families could be solved if men would get spiritually engaged.  I believe that God made men …

The Making of Fireproof

  Last night the men at our church put on a valentines banquet.  The idea was to plan an event that would bless and encourage our wives.   We showed the movie “Fireproof” as part of the program.  What an awesome movie.  It combines so many elements of faith into such a neat package.  I …

Everyone Has A Story

     I have been having a running conversation with my long time friend Ernie.  Ernie and I are much alike, just this Sunday we were talking and he said "You know we are so much alike that if one of us has experienced something the other is bound to hit it sometime".  It is true …

If Your Eye Causes You To Sin

  Matthew 18:9  And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.        How many of us take this verse seriously?  It seems the …

True Happiness

This morning I read this paragraph from the book Living Beyond the Limits by Franklin Graham. The Bible’s view of happiness is quite different from the world’s.  Happy are those who find wisdom (Proverbs 3:13): we certainly don’t see that glaring across a magazine cover!  Happy are those who have mercy on the poor (Proverbs …

The Company You Keep

Proverbs 13:20  He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.        Lately I have been pondering the company I keep, not so much the people I relate to but the other company I keep.  What other things have become my companions, influencing the way I think, and …
