  • Parents should be role models in life for their children

    Our children are looking for role models, and we think that these models should be school teachers, the religious leader of our Church, our in-laws or anybody else you can think of.

  • Lent invites Christians to serious spring cleaning

    “Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.” With these words ashes are smeared on our foreheads once a year—a reminder that we will all be laid to rest in the cemetery sooner or later.

    Dirty foreheads that are not cleaned for a day make people smile. They also give all Christians pause to think about cleaning out our “closets.”

  • Are you a cracked pot?

    A water bearer in India had two large pots, both hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

    For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house.

  • Just when a person thinks he’s alone, God rides up on a tractor to the rescue

    Years ago, we had a neighbor, Sandy, who moved into the house around the bend from ours.

    She and her husband and two kids moved to Florida from New Jersey where her husband had struggled with a drug addiction — and a girlfriend.

    They came to make a new start, which only lasted a few weeks. Sandy’s husband decided he wasn’t ready to give up his girlfriend and moved back to New Jersey.
