Wonders from the Word – Only One Chance (2 Chronicles 10)

Thursday, January 31st, 2008

Selfishness, foolishness, pride, harsh words, bad advice, and intimidation.  Hurt, schism, retaliation, and separation. What am I describing?  Every day those words are more than words with definitions; they are

On Purpose! Take A Hike!

Monday, January 28th, 2008

            Has anyone ever told you to take a hike?  What was your response?  Have you ever had one of those days? Or one of those weeks?  Or even longer?  After working all night, anyone would need to rest.  Even the perpetual moving Paul, after preaching, teaching and talking all night, should need to rest.An […]

On Purpose! Fast Lessons from Fast Food

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Went through the drive-thru recently of a popular fast-food chain, and learned some eternal lessons.  Being in a hurry, I wanted us to speedily order our food and get on our way.  After ordering, they repeated our order and asked, “Is that correct?”  I didn’t hear everything and said, “I don’t really care;” I was […]

Wonders from the Word – Guilty Because of Association (1 Kings 11)

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

Guilty by association is a sinful way to condemn people. And yet, we are not truly guilty by association, only by insinuation and assumption.  In fact, the most innocent person to walk this earth was charged guilty by association – Jesus (Matthew 11:19).  “Don’t hang around the wrong crowd!” we’ve either heard as children or […]

Wonders from the Word – I Am the Head (Eph.5:23-25)

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

I am the head of my wife.  The head honcho, the boss, the big guy.  Without apology and with no reservation, I say that.  My wife is to listen to and obey me.  Such talk is not politically correct, but it is biblically correct.  In some homes such talk is not safe, either. My position […]
