The Idol of More

More. We all want more. More stuff. More money. More time. I’m no different. I want more, too. I want a fire pit in the back yard and a fresh coat of exterior paint on the house. I want more money to set aside for retirement. And, I want the iPhone 8. Since I’m due Continue Reading…

Easter Thoughts All Year Round

…and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. – I Corinthians 15:14 He is risen! Risen . . . indeed! And what’s that supposed to mean to me? I live each day as best I can; I reach out to my fellowman. I sometimes slip I Continue Reading…

On Having a Valentine Marriage

Marriage: bliss or bother? It doesn’t have to be one or the other, but the “bother” can really be a bummer! God tells us how He makes man and woman and what He has in mind for their relationship when they try out for the leading roles of husband and wife. He locks them in Continue Reading…

New Year’s Revolution

What we need are not New Year’s resolutions. We need New Year’s revolutions. We don’t need to better our life, rededicate our hearts, or renew our faith. We don’t need to change our life.

Tell it Real

Recently at a dinner party I had a long conversation with someone who, until that conversation, was merely an acquaintance. During our conversation he genuinely shared about his life, where he had been and where he sees himself going. I reciprocated. By the end of the evening, through honest conversation, I had a new friend. Continue Reading…

Leaving a Legacy of Courage and Faith

The nation of Israel stood on the precipice of a new era. They had experienced the spiritual highs of the Red Sea escape from Egypt and the spiritual lows of the golden calf incident at the foot of Mt. Sinai. They had wandered in the wilderness for years and were now closing in the land Continue Reading…

Like a River Flows

“As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalms 103:12 NKJV It always amazes me when God steps into my everyday life and teaches me a profound lesson.  One day when I was working at a hospital in Knoxville, TN, I stood up and caught Continue Reading…
