• Put your trust in God–He will never fail you

    You and I are constantly placing our trust in something. Unfortunately, our natural inclination is to put our trust in the wrong places.

    What I mean is that we tend to aim our hope at things that can fail us, when we could (and should) hope in the One who never will.

  • Christians must forgive those who sin against them

    Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.

    This is a phrase from our Lord’s Prayer Forgiveness is something that is essential in the Kingdom of God, and receiving forgiveness and giving forgiveness are tightly linked together. Close your eyes and seek Jesus.

    Can you feel his presence? If you can, ask him for forgiveness for your sins. Know that the Lord is always forgiving, no matter how great the sin.

  • God’s grace is the real scandal in the church

    This past week I met with some members and the pastor of a local church that had been rocked by scandal recently.

    A church employee had stolen a lot of money from them, robbing them not only of their funds, but of their trust.

    And as what often happens when a church faces a scandal, people pointed fingers and assigned blame.

    Why didn’t you know about this? How could you let this happen? You should’ve seen it coming.

  • Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart for it is for the Lord

    A big silver dollar and a little brown cent, rolling along together they went. Rolling along the smooth sidewalk, when the dollar remarked, for the dollar can talk, “Why you cheap little cent, you poor little mite, I’m far bigger than you and twice as bright. I’m worth more than you a hundred fold and written on me in letters bold, is the motto drawn from the pious creed “In God we trust,” which all can read.” 

  • Vacation Bible School: Shipwrecked rescued by Jesus
  • Kennedy: When small things are big things

    This morning as I write this I’m at home because I re-hurt my knee as I was walking out the door.

    It will be OK, but I decided to work from home today as a precaution, ice my knee, sit with it elevated, not put pressure on it.

    The ice is comforting and cool and my laptop fits perfectly on my lap.

    Thank God for small things!

    The other day my great-niece Leah, 7, sent me a text to tell me she loves me. Leah, as little as she is, has a huge heart.

  • Which comes first, the aging body or aging mind?

    We have all heard the age-old question, “Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?”
