  • Does your church show the compassion of Jesus?

    Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear Jesus.  And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, ‘This man receives sinners and eats with them.’ ” (Luke 15:1-2)

    This passage could be described as classic Jesus. In these two verses, we find Jesus doing what Jesus does best in Luke’s gospel — loving the social outcast and offending the religious establishment. I often wonder why many of us in the church seem to do the opposite?

  • Family connects us forever – for better or worse

    Every family begins with a marriage. Two weeks ago, my family got together in California to celebrate our parents’ marriage with a huge party for their 60th anniversary.

    It was a 1950s-themed party, minus the poodle skirts and black leather jackets.

    My sister transformed her garage into a ’50s-style combination soda shoppe and hot rod garage, complete with a juke box in the corner playing classic rock ’n’ roll music.

  • Gossip is ‘nonsense’ from ‘busybodies’ who are idle

     God reprimands people who gossip, as the Bible says in I Timothy 5:13: “Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to.”
