  • Waiting shows the tough job moms face every day

    Years ago, my friend Becky in Texas excitedly announced that her son was “only” smoking pot.

    She asked, “What kind of a mom gets excited because her kid is ‘only’ smoking pot?”

    The kind of mom whose kid had been doing cocaine and other hard drugs.

  • Transformation plays an important role in life

    The smell of fresh cut grass and leather is in the air.  It is once again football season and the lights at the high school stay on a little later, now that Friday nights are here. 

    Saturday mornings offer up ESPN’s College Gameday and many people watch the pregame show with anticipation as another football season is unraveling. A fan of the gridiron can find a game on TV just about any day of the week now.  Football is everywhere.

    As a former footballer myself, I find it interesting, how rapidly the game is changing and evolving.

  • Isis will cower before Jesus

     Crucial conflict is found in Matthew’s gospel, Chapter 17. A boy is possessed by demons who throw him mercilessly into fire and water. The boy suffers severely from demonic possession. No one is able to help the boy victimized by evil spirits—not even the disciples of Jesus. Frustrated with their lack of faith, Jesus himself comes forward, rebukes the demons, and drives them out of the boy. The father is most grateful.

  • The story of the good Samaritan shows Christian outreach to help others

    One of the more threatening parables to anyone with a conscience is the parable of the good Samaritan. Considering that it is a parable about helping a person in dire straits, it’s not hard to understand why we cringe under the many verbs of helping the down and out man. What is most interesting to me is the unique difficulty it poses to people who consider themselves faithful to God. Kindness to those in need should be right up our alley, but the parable suggests that the good guys in the religious world have an Achilles heel in the mercy department.

  • Who do you trust in? Scripture shows how God is the answer

    It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.

    Since he was an Indian chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets.

    When he looked at the sky, he couldn’t tell what the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.
