God thought they needed to hear it a second time

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 09:45:53 +0000

Deut. 1:3: And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment unto them. Deuteronomy means “second law”. It does not mean a second set of […]

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 08:13:30 +0000

In Matthew 12:41, Jesus said, “The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here.” According to Jesus, the men of Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah.

New tennis shoes for 29 cents!

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 08:37:27 +0000

I just purchased a brand new and very nice pair of tennis shoes for 29 cents.  These shoes rang up on a local store’s cash register with two special and unmarked discounts.  Then the cashier accepted a 15% off coupon which had been given to me by an employee and this dropped the price to […]



Being a father

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 08:53:49 +0000

I love being a father. If every bit of progress of my children isn’t imprinted on film or memory card, it is in my mind as fresh as the day it happened. Those memories include when each of our three children walked, when they learned to ride a bicycle, and graduated from college. Sure, there […]



I do not gauge myself and my actions by other people’s gifts

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 09:36:58 +0000

WHEN WE COMPARE ourselves with others, we actually inhibit ourselves from becoming who God wants us to be… He gives gifts to us (Romans 11.29), and each of us has something to contribute. I do not gauge myself and my actions by other people’s gifts, but by the gifts God has given to me.  Steve […]



If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 09:50:43 +0000

“Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it If anyone’s work which he has built on it […]

It was 30 years ago today that President Ronald Reagan gave a speech that perhaps, contained his most memorable quote as President of the United States.  While speaking in West Berlin, President Reagan said to the Soviet leader, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Of course, the wall to which he was referring was the […]



Ye are the salt of the earth

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 09:14:58 +0000

I love salt.  I use it on just about everything I eat from popcorn to apples.  However, before I can get the benefit from the salt, I must grab the salt shaker, turn it upside down, and shake it.  Sometimes God has to do the same.  Grab the church, turn it upside down, and shake […]

Wed, 31 May 2017 09:54:03 +0000

THE EVIL EYE English professors love to catch the errors students make in their term papers, and they love nothing better than to catch mixed metaphors.

That seems so narrow-minded and maybe even mean-spirited

Tue, 30 May 2017 09:53:22 +0000

The book “Where’s Waldo?” challenges us to find an elusive Wally with his distinctive red-and-white- striped shirt, bobble hat, and glasses. At times we may find the search exhilarating or perhaps frustrating. The search for Wally can also provide us with a parable as we enter the world of two young people on a train. […]
