Great gifts require some assembly

When I was a child, I asked my father for a bicycle for Christmas. My older brother had a 10-speed racing bike and he would ride off for hours at a time. He was 10 years older than me, and it seemed like he had so much more freedom than I did. If I'd had a bicycle like his, I might have been allowed to ride with him when he left on those long adventures. I was very specific when describing my request - I knew just what I wanted.

Experience with God is life-changer

The Bible opens our eyes and our minds to the life and times of many wonderful individuals and their legacies. We can read about men and women who strived to execute great deeds, all in the name of their God. Great names like Noah, Abraham, Samson, Moses, Jesus and Mary - just to name a few - have continued to compel and intrigue believers and skeptics since the Bible was canonized and printed for all to read.

Study the Lord's intricate gospel

While the Israelites had no children's-story Bibles, they were given pictures of the Gospel in the Old Covenant types and ordinances. Among them were the Passover, Exodus, sacrificial system, festivals, priesthood and ceremonies of the Tabernacle and Temple worship. There is one picture to which I often have loved to return – the picture of the Ark of the Covenant.

Why "American Sniper" is not "just a movie"

"American Sniper," starring Bradley Cooper as a patriotic sniper serving in the Iraq War, is not “just a movie." It serves as a chilling reminder of the realities of war — a war that remains an afterthought for many Americans who weren't directly involved in the action — and the hurtful feelings many Americans still hold towards Islam.
