SIN IS FUN!

I believe that it is a mistake to suggest to our children that sin is just nasty and no fun at all. They will notice that there is a law against children drinking, having sex, smoking etc but no law against eating dirt. They will conclude that it must be because the illegal things are […]

DON’T YOU KNOW WHAT I WANT?

A blind man came to Jesus and Jesus asked him what he wanted. Sounds like a dumb question right? The man was blind. However maybe it isn’t such a dumb question. Luke 18:41 Deep in my heart are desires that I am not entirely aware of and that ultimately control my motivation, drive and gratitude. […]

LOOKING FOR SANITY? THAT’S INSANE!

I think that the problem starts with assuming that, “Well, I am perfectly sane and those people don’t agree with me so they must be insane.” The truth is that we are all, naturally insane! So why do we whine about human beings doing insane things? What else could they do! Insane people do and […]

God loves “Hall Monitors”

Recently I was in line at a grocery store when the lady in front of me went around the plastic shield with a mask just covering only her chin and got within 2 feet of the poor checkout lady to ask a question. I asked her to stop endangering the life of the nice checkout […]

WHY DOES GOD ALLOW COVID-19?

Why is it that when the team is winning, they take the credit, but when they lose it is the coach’s fault? The worst possible thing that can happen to people is comfort and ease while they happily sin. Read the Bible, every time God comes through and brings victory and prosperity; the people respond […]

BE RADICALLY PRACTICAL

PRACTICAL means acting as if truth is true! 2 Peter 3 10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall […]

FAMILIAR almost comfortable? WORRY

Someone points out that worry can take over and have no clear trigger, be there all the time and even become “comfortable” or at least familiar .. Even with panic attacks, they tend to be attached to worrying about the next one–anticipatory worry– which starts to blend together into constant anxiety. The way the brain […]

Dealing With Anxiety

As with most emotional disorders, the symptom is not the problem. It is good for our brains to constantly watch for danger in seemingly trivial circumstances. Danger does not always announce itself loudly! However, usually, most of us analyze the danger and, if it is nothing, turn it off even before our frontal lobes are […]

SHOWING IGNORANCE produces BLISS!

I have been fascinated to note how much trouble there is in admitting ignorance. Nothing should be easier or more natural. After all what do I know? Not much compared with the Lord. Besides, much of what I do know isn’t actually real unless it flows from the mind of God. Jesus complained that, having […]

MORE, GIVE ME MORE OF YOU, LORD!

Did you ever notice at the rock concert how everyone fights to sit at the back and leave all the front seats empty? Or was that at the ball game? Come to think of it, it was at church wasn’t it? When we were homeschooling, I noticed the children constantly asking, (if not in these […]
