Many times as a coach, I would watch certain players make the same mistakes over and over during practice. It’s hard for a coach to have confidence in players who have a hard time making the necessary adjustments. Consequently, those types of players don’t see a lot of action during the game. God must grow […]

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill I once read that the greatest exercise for the heart is lifting another person who has a need. Last night at our dinner/auction benefitting SCORE International, many people were giving their hearts a good workout and […]

Some say baseball never changes…they are wrong. Consider this; in 1916 Babe Ruth pitched a 14 inning complete game in the World Series. That will not happen again. Everything changes… except God, His promises, His love for us, His character and the gifts He gives to us…especially the free gift of salvation through Christ-Jesus. “Every […]

I celebrated a birthday earlier this week. My good friend, Dale Ditto, sent a card with news items from the year I was born: World Series Champions, New York Yankees U.S. Open Golf Winner, Ben Hogan Pro Football Champion, Los Angeles Rams Stanley Cup Winner, Toronto Maple Leafs NCAA Basketball Champions, KENTUCKY College Football Champions, […]

I’ve noticed that when I hide a mistake that I’ve made I lose a little respect for myself. I also feel unworthy of love. Then, it’s hard to love others. Sin makes everyone feel out of sync with God, ourselves and with those we love. At that point, you are not who God created you […]

“Completely” and “always” are powerful words. Let those words in the following verse sink in. “Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them.” (Hebrews 7:25) Jesus saves “completely” and He “always” lives to intercede for us!

“When he (Jesus) noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable: “When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. If so, the host who invited both of you […]

It’s a great privilege to be able to vote the first Tuesday in November. I encourage you to vote. But know that the men and women who win will make some mistakes. I hope and pray they lead well, but they will not be perfect. That’s why I place my trust in God. The Psalmist […]

I’ve heard it said that “When you take a step of faith, you step from darkness into light.” This quote reflects a great truth…faith isn’t always easy but it’s always worth it! We all need to take the “next step.” We all need to grow in our faith. After all, if you are standing still […]

I’m a father. I know. God wants to hear from you! When my sons stop by, call or even text I am always thrilled to hear from them. We are children of God. He is our Father. His capacity to love is far greater than mine. No matter what you have said. No matter what […]
