Lead an honorable life

Never forget terribleness of sin

Sept. 11 will never be the same in our country again. It always will stand out as the day our country was attacked by terrorists – the day thousands lost their lives and a day that causes many to realize that life is uncertain, even in the United States.

What do we wantfor our children

When I was growing up, like many of you, we were what I considered poor. We primarily wore hand-me-downs. At Christmas, we unwrapped one special present and then some type of new clothes – always underwear and socks.

Seek truth to avoid misjudging

As human beings, we love to pronounce judgment on a lot of things. What is interesting is that we like to voice our judgment on things that really don't amount to much – sometimes even arguing passionately.

Thoughts, behavior can be conquered

Have you ever asked yourself, "Who would I like to become?" What people or events in life have hindered your reaching that goal? To achieve something, you have to remove all distractions that are blocking you from making progress. Fear stops most people from getting what they want - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, of the unknown, of disappointment. Then, of course, the "what if" fears always fuel these hindrances.

"So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with 12 yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him. Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. 'Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,' he said, 'and then I will come with you.' 'Go back,' Elijah replied. 'What have I done to you?'
