Envy can creep in to our lives infecting us with bitterness and jealousy. Then it will proceed to rob us of joy and productivity. I’ve seen envy destroy relationships, tear apart teams, wreck families and take down businesses. Be on guard. “Envy is the art of counting the other fellow’s blessings instead of your own.”Harold […]

While reading the parable of the lost son (Luke 15:11-32) this morning, I was once again moved by the willingness of the father to run toward his son to forgive and restore him into the family.

The world can be a dark place. There’s evil on city streets, in some boardrooms and back rooms. There’s shootings, threats of wars and December tornadoes. But during the dark times, we can have light. We can invite Jesus to provide light into any room or any situation. He is the Light of the world […]

As Christians we are often more than willing to offer mercy to someone. Very seldom do I see grace offered. Christ has given both to us in abundance. “The difference between mercy and grace? Mercy gave the prodigal son a second chance. Grace gave him a feast.”(Max Lucado) “…for this son of mine was dead […]

When I was a young man I worked one summer as a guide at Mammoth Cave National Park. We used to gather the tourists together in a very large “room” in the cave and talk about darkness. We would turn all the lights out and be in total, complete darkness. We would then flip in […]
