December 30, 2011


What could be a better way to end the year than knowing that your relationship with God is just what it should be?  Earlier this week we talked about how in order for this to take place we must do our best to humbly work out our differences with the loved ones in our lives.  […]

It’s A Wrap Part 2 (20111229)

December 29, 2011


Today we are looking at how to put a good wrap on the end of the year.  One of the things that often makes the past year less than what we would have had it be is the fact that relationships are often difficult to maintain.  Maybe someone has sinned against you.  Don’t sit there […]

It’s A Wrap Part 1 (20111228)

December 28, 2011


This is it, the end of another year!  And each of us has an opportunity to end the year with our best effort.  Certainly there have been many things we did right.  But, there are also those things we did wrong.  If you have mistreated someone, or done someone wrong, it is a good time […]

Jesus Must Increase, I Must Decrease Part 5 (20110701)

July 1, 2011


“He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30, NIV) For many folks there remains a temptation to want to be first; to be the big kahuna!  They like telling great big stories, not for the sake of simply engaging their friends and family, but for the sake of being first.  Others like to […]

It Is A Beautiful Day Part 1 (20110519)

May 19, 2011


As we journey here in this fallen world, there are places and people in our lives that are…, well, let’s say less than desirable to us at times.  At such times it is easy to be overcome with negative feelings and possibly even some depression. I imagine that such was the case for two women […]

May 18, 2011


For a number of days we have been talking about the wife of noble character.  And it is clear that she is, indeed, a unique and gifted woman.  But, for a moment, let us stop to consider her husband.  Did you know that the word “husband” has to do with managing the activities of the […]

20110509 The Woman of Noble Character Part 1

May 10, 2011


In Proverbs God teaches us about the qualities of a woman of noble character.   The Scriptures says “A wife of noble character who can find?  She is worth far more than rubies.” (Proverbs 31:10, NIV). One of the first things evident is the fact that in the entire world, this kind of woman may be […]

May 6, 2011


Summer time is approaching and most folks like to get out and enjoy the sun.  It helps them feel better about themselves and about life in general.  There is something wonderful about basking in the sunshine on a beautiful day. There is another kind of Son-shine; it is beautiful light of the Son of God […]

Bringing On The Son-shine Part Four (20110505)

May 5, 2011


Yesterday I spoke about how pruning (cutting back) a plant in my garden saved it from dying.  But, pruning a plant is not always a quick thing to do.  For instance, when I pruned my roses yesterday, I had to make some preparation.  First, I had to set some time aside in my evening to […]
