A Father's Day challenge to be strong, kind

I don't remember the exact words I spoke, but very quickly one of my nephews exclaimed, "Uh oh, Uncle Brad, you have to give up your 'man card.'"

Fathers Day

Happy Father's Day! Those words are echoing through the community all morning, accompanied with breakfast in bed (Cheerio's with chocolate milk, burnt toast and hand drawn pictures of adolescent abstract art, rendered by a future Picasso) or, perhaps, with a slender box containing the world's ugliest tie. In an earlier era, when school electives carried a higher value and priority, one might receive the odd handcrafted ceramic ashtray (emphasis on the word "odd").

100 years later -- Celebrating fathers

Today is dedicated to the men who sacrifice so much to provide for their families. Sometimes they go without to make ends meet. In this tough economy and times of high unemployment, these men work extra hours so their families can have food, clothing, shelter, and the necessities of life.

God's blessings can be yours

"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9).

Little these days remains the same

Have you bought your iPad yet? I have to admit that mine still safely resides at a store somewhere. For that matter, I don't even have an iPod yet. How backwards is that?

Things, life can fall apart

We moved into our present house around nine years ago. We have a circular driveway that is concrete close to the house but asphalt on both sides as it gets closer to the road coming into our cul-de-sac.

Memorial Day

In our country we have just observed May 31 as Memorial Day. How fitting it is to remember all those who have served to make sure we can have the freedoms we enjoy, and especially to remember those who have given their very lives for us. Over the years to some this special day has lost its meaning. Parents may have failed to explain the importance of the day, rather seeing it as a day of going to the beach, or having friends over for a cookout, or some other form of recreation. Proper recreation is not a bad thing ...

Need wisdom? Get with God

It really was amazing how it happened. I'm not sure what he did to change. But when I was about 15 years old my dad was not very smart. He had all kinds of beliefs and rules that were old fashioned and foolish. I even got to the point that I prayed that he would get smarter and more up to date. It only took about 10 years, but that is actually what happened. By the time I was 25 he was one of the smartest men I knew. And he had not even gone to school. He just ...

You can't do it by yourself

Many of us remember the TV commercial about the elderly woman who was alone, fell in her home and "couldn't get up." She found herself in a bad situation. We all remember the woman's cry for help: "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up."

Greater love has no one than this

Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." During this Memorial Day weekend, we take the time to remember those who have given their lives for us. I know that we, as a nation, have often debated the merits of a particular war. The reasons for conflict have been many and varied.

Listen to right one for eternal life

Many still believe the lie of Satan today; they fail to see that sin separates man from God (Isaiah 59:1-2). They fail to understand that when they give in to their desires to do wrong things, they - not God - are causing the problem.

One more time around the moutain

At the beginning of a new year, many resolutions are made. If someone could find a way to fine or charge people for broken resolutions, they would quickly become very wealthy.

Don't have a disappointing destination

Sunday afternoon, I was watching a football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. I'm not a fan of either team; the only reason I was watching it was that it was the playoffs.

Use your mind to honor God

Plow-burning faith can change the world

"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?' So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and ...

Recent incidents reveal man's sinful nature

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. – Romans 13:1-2 (ESV)
