Our Sound Bite Culture

There’s a woman I know who is young – maybe 21-years-old or even younger. She has three children by three men and has never been married. She lives with her mother. Her current boyfriend does not live with her, but he does spend the night often. She gambles regularly. And, she is deeply spiritual. You won’t find someone who talks about Jesus Christ more than her.

Observing a ‘Daniel Fast’

In observing the diet, I will eat only vegetables, fruits, and unleavened bread that does not contain any ingredient that is not made directly from a vegetable or fruit. For instance, I am going to make tortillas out of fresh ground flour and coconut oil (instead of shortening or beef tallow). When I make a salad, I’ll flavor it with olive oil (cold pressed) and lemon juice. I will only drink water. I will allow my kids to eat dairy, but I likely will not be preparing meat for them.

The Power of a Praying Wife – Chapter 10: His Choices

In the course of our discussing it, we discussed the fact that God has placed the husband as the head of the family. Gregg said, “I am responsible for my choices. If I make a bad decision, God is going to say to me, ‘Why did you make this bad decision?’ If I seek your counsel and take your advice, God is not going to say to you, ‘Why did you give bad advice?’ God is going to say to me, ‘Why did you make this bad decision?'”

The Gospel, Personified

One of the hardest things, for me, about reading my Bible is the inability to be able to picture what’s happening in my head. Growing up in Sunday school, every story was told with those felt characters on a felt board. All of the men looked the same, all of the women looked the same, and despite a few thousand years and thousands of covered miles, everyone dressed the same and had the same props.

Passion for the Word

I have probably ten Bibles in my house. I don’t have to walk two miles to read one, and I wouldn’t have to walk barefoot for 25 miles to own one. But the question is: would I? Is my passion for God great enough that I would make those sacrifices just to receive His Word?

The Fine Art of Discipline

Whenever there is societal butting of heads over anything to do with what is the best decision to make, I always turn to the best source for any answer: God’s Word. The Bible is full of passages for parents concerning parenting and discipling children.
