High IQ

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 career opportunities that are only open to the select few. Her chances of earning a higher salary will be far above the norm. There are advantages of ...

The relevancy of God's word, part 4

In continuing our thoughts on the relevancy of God's word, we need to see that Gods word gives purpose to this life and hope for the next. God has blessed us by giving us purpose in our life.

Taking on the odds

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 are of hitting at least one deer over a lifetime. It must be high at least in this area because I know so many who have. I ...

The relevancy of God's word, part 3

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.

Our spiritual growth is like rain

A couple of weeks ago we received about 5 inches of rain which was much needed during our recent days of drought conditions.

The relevancy of God's word, part two

Last week we began a discussion 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.

Fires can teach us a spiritual lesson

As most of you know, until the other day we in the Coastal Empire have been under a drought and a mandatory no burn restriction. No burn permits were being issued for fear of fires getting out of control. We did get around five inches of rain so that burn permits are now being issued.

The assurance of heaven available, free

I have lived in the Richmond Hill area for over 6 years and this year for the first time I have purchased flood insurance. I am convinced that we are living on borrowed time and that one year our area will be struck by a hurricane. It may be after I'm dead and gone or it may be this year. After reading about all the problems the home owners had who didn't have flood insurance in New Orleans, I finally made the plunge. I am now fully covered if my home is destroyed by wind or high water ...

What is right?

Every person from what ever background has the opportunity to do what is right. As we see in the news each evening not everyone makes use of their opportunities. Some determine to do wrong and forget right. Society today wants to blame such bad choices on the things around the individual. In some cases perhaps and only perhaps this might be true. Most of the time the individual decides to do what ever it is they are going to do because they determine to do the thing.

Actions speak louder than words

The other day, I was watching the news when a political ad featuring the politician came across my TV screen. He told what he believed and what he would do if elected. Immediately, I thought, "I wonder if his past voting record in politics mirrored what he was saying."

Everyone can be adopted in God's family

The world is full of people wanting to know, "What is in it for me?" This attitude keeps many from ever checking out God's word and obeying the Gospel. They see no benefit coming their way, so why bother with religion?

We should look back to go forward

I was moved recently after reading an article titled "Down Blige Road" in Richmond Hill Reflections magazine. As "transplanted" African-Americans here in Richmond Hill, it helped us understand and get more insight into the pasts of other African-Americans who lived in, worked in and built this community.

Don't wait until 'someday' to follow God

Life is but for a little while. James wrote, "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away" (James 4:14). What a great reminder of life's brevity, as it can be seen many times during a year.

Gardening teaches to lean on God

As I usually do, earlier this year I planted a little vegetable garden. It's not too elaborate, but it gives me something to enjoy and provides us with a variety of wonderfully fresh things to eat.

Our past life is behind us, thanks to God

A couple of months ago, I went to have surgery. In that process, I had to look at my medical records to make sure they were correct, including medicines I had taken and previous surgeries.
