There’s a lot of anger and rage in the world today. I’m sure that it’s been a part of mankind from the beginning. It’s hard to believe an argument can be won through screams, profanity and name calling. “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body […]

Elisabeth Elliott is one of the bravest missionaries in modern times. She lived among the same hostile tribe in Ecuador that had previously murdered her husband. It’s interesting to me that she said this about faith…“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.” We all have doubts, fears and questions. I […]

Vince Lombardi was an incredibly successful NFL football coach. He was a tough, “old school” coach. One of his most famous quotes was “faith, family and football.” It’s interesting that I don’t think about Coach Lombardi’s accomplishments when I think of him.

The question I should ask myself each morning is this, “Who will I have the opportunity to serve today?” “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made […]

There are days when we wonder how we can go on. It is a condition of the human race that we, at times, experience discouragement, disappointment, heartbreak or pain. Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) “The Lord is my rock, my […]

Sharon and I attended the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame banquet last night. There were some great former athletes there…Bench, Rose, Perez, Concepcion and many more. The current team was there as well…young, vibrant and athletic. Two things were noticed by me as I observed the old and the young:One, the current players were very […]

If you feel discouraged or left out today, remember this truth and experience joy in the midst of sadness: “The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: ‘have loved you with an everlasting love…’”(Jeremiah 31:3) “Riches take wings, comforts vanish, hope withers away, but love stays with us. Love is God.” ~ Lew Wallace […]
