Feasting on the word of the Lord

Feasting on the word of God will help us realize our need for God in our lives more each day. It will also help us come to realize our responsibility to "feed" the starving masses with this same word.

Jesus helps in tough times

My family and I recently went to see an inspiring movie that received rave reviews. "The Help" is a unique story of an American author who, during the civil rights movement of the 1960s, writes a book from African-American maids' points of view. It's about the white families the maids work for and the hardships they go through on a daily basis. The movie was wonderful and brought back a lot of memories from my childhood in the South. It was an eye-opener for my sheltered teenage children.

God has remedy for our misery

Lead an honorable life

I thought long and hard about what I could write for this column that would be relevant and impactful at this time. For several reasons, I decided to write about the value of honor - primarily because there is such a lack of honor being displayed across our nation, and because I need to do a better job at practicing what I preach.

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.

Use your gifts to honor God

I heard a story one time about a church that was looking for a new pastor. When asked what they were looking for, the chairman of the search committee said that they only had two main criteria.

Keeping God in your life, part 1

As Jesus was concluding what has become known as the Sermon on the Mount, he said, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matthew 6:33-34). In this, we are told to put God first in our lives and not to concentrate all our beings on the physical things of this life.
