  • Indifference often leads to many problems in life

    Undoubtedly, this winter has been the strongest of the past decade; the snowfall has caused local residents quite a lot of grief while driving to work or on the way to drop children off at school.

    A simple trip to the store became a hazardous feat because of the icy slick roads. Consequently, nobody can declare that the climate of these past months has left them unaffected. It’ll prove difficult to forget the polar vortex that whipped almost every state in the U.S. But it’s easy to ignore God, who granted us life and a reason to live.

  • Lent offers the time to pay it forward

    Who among us does not believe that Jesus Christ gave his life for us on the cross. Who of us would deny this total gift of Jesus for us and our salvation . Who can be indifferent to the incredible love that enabled Jesus to accept crucifixion . Lent is the season our churches set aside to reflect on this divine reality.

  • Learn how to survive sucked in, washed up and blown over

    “Chippie the Parakeet never saw it coming. One second he was peacefully perched in his cage. The next he was sucked in, washed up, blown over.

    The problems began when Chippie’s owner decided to clean Chippie’s cage with a vacuum cleaner. She removed the attachment from the end of the hose and stuck it in the cage. The phone rang, and she turned to pick it up. She’d barely said ‘Hello’ when ‘sssopp!’ Chippie got sucked in.

  • God provides a shield to protect those with faith in difficult times

    Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair, and we want to blame God for our problems. But Matthew 5:45 states, “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”

    What the scripture is saying is that good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. That’s life.  Sometimes it is easy and sometimes it is difficult.
