“I would maintain that thanks is the highest form of thought.” (G.K. Chesterson) “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) Being thankful for many things negates the weight and burden of one thing.

Actions speak louder than words. “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at […]

But I have stilled and […]

Since I now get senior discounts at several prestigious fast food establishments, I was stung by his remarks. Hopefully, I wasn’t similarly arrogant when I thought of the following passage of scripture: “Young men, in the same way […]

This morning join me in being reminded of a few of the incredible qualities, and also, the grace of the God we serve: Psalm 103:8 “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.” Psalm 103:12 “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions […]

We’ve all most likely been in situations at a time when an opportunity to give presents itself. Do we open our heart, our hands and our wallets and receive the blessings that come through giving? Or, do we conveniently grow “alligator arms?” It’s hard to “cast the bread upon the waters” with alligator arms! LOL […]

God has blessed me with many opportunities to speak and share my faith. I’ve spoken to major leaguers, college football and baseball teams and many high school and youth teams. This afternoon I will speak to a middle school football team. I’ve been told that this is a particularly rebellious and disrespectful team. So, first […]
