Paul wrote some great advice about anger, (Eph. 4:26). We must not hold grudges and bitterness in our hearts toward out brethren.
Over the past few weeks we have looked at the relevancy of God's word. Despite what some may think, it is just as needed and meaningful today as when it was penned. Our world would be a much better place if everyone took the time to read study and obey God's word. It has been said that if the Bible were not true (but it is) the world would profit by following its teachings.
Recently I read an article about a 2 year old girl with an IQ of 152 and they say she is a genius. She has been invited to come on television shows and has been interviewed by scores of reporters. The sad thing is that she may never be able to live a normal life with so much attention. This capability however will open up doors of opportunity. There are certain educational and ...

For years I have heard the stories of family, friends and acquaintances tell of coming in contact with deer with their vehicles. I had been driving for 33 years and had never received that privilege. I really thought that I could go for the rest of my life without doing it. I started feeling pretty good about it to the point that I almost felt exempt. I do not know what the odds ...
We have been discussing of the relevancy of God's word. We saw how that sin is still a problem in our world just as it was when the Bible was penned. As long as sin remains, God's word is relevant.
A couple of weeks ago we received about 5 inches of rain which was much needed during our recent days of drought conditions.

On His journey through Galilee, Christ tried to prepare the minds of His disciples for the scenes before Him.
In Matthew's gospel, we find a story about John the Baptist coming on the scene as a New Testament prophet proclaiming the coming of the Christ. He was baptizing those who wanted to be identified with the new coming kingdom later called Christianity.
We are in the middle of home improvement projects at our house. We have added a new room and are replacing the flooring and painting in others. Right now, the place is a mess.
We continue our thoughts on the poem of Joseph M. Scriven. His poem that later was put to music serves to encourage all who seek to follow God.
"The church has many critiques but no revivals." This anonymous quote was an opening of careful reflection for me.
James 5:16 tells us to "confess your faults one with another." There are several benefits in doing this.
Last week, I went to visit my son. He is greatly improving in so many ways, though he remains in a wheelchair.
Joseph M. Scriven (1819-96), who wrote the poem "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," was no stranger to trials and sadness.

A few years ago there was a popular song called, "All You Need is Love." I agree that real love is needed and it's nice to be on the receiving end, but the thing most needed is hope.
There are so many ways one can misuse the tongue. Cursing, tale bearing, gossip, boasting and lying are just a few ways that words can be misused. Cursing in our day seems to have become a way of life for so many. It is as if some people could not talk unless they used a curse word in their speech.
