Do you ever feel inadequate? Others have more wealth, more education, more connections or more charisma. You may ask, “how can I make a positive impact on my family, where I work, in my community or on my team?” Many years ago, I was feeling this way when a friend told me, “God doesn’t need […]

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17) These words are 2,000 years old, but they are as true as ever today. God continues to create. As “new creations” we don’t have to live our lives facing our fears, weaknesses and […]

When I find myself in those dark places, joy is hard to come by. “For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made His light […]

Our lives will intersect with other lives today. Will we encourage, discourage or ignore those we come in contact with? We have an opportunity to make a positive impact on someone today! Be intentional…these are divine appointments. I’m praying for you today. Keith Madison SCORE International

Recently, social media was blazing with venom because a liberal, cynical talk show host compared Vice President Pence’s comment about Jesus speaking to him with mental illness. I didn’t sound off on social media, but I confess, I was angry with her disrespect and her bigotry toward Christians. Then sometime yesterday, I was reminded that […]

I have great respect for science and appreciate the brilliance and God-given abilities of the men and women who have made our lives safer, more comfortable and healthier through scientific innovations. But my “faith” in science only goes so far. I agree with author/philosopher C.S. Lewis on this matter, “I don’t have enough faith in […]
