Bible will forever be the way

Some people try to tell us that the old way of doing things religiously will not work. They say we must be more willing to accept the ways of others if we expect to convert them.

Build you talents for God

When I was growing up as a child, I always heard the story of David and Goliath. I pictured this small boy with a slingshot that he used as a toy, running up to this huge and strong ugly giant, then shooting a rock from the slingshot, hoping by chance that it hit its target. Then I pictured David, after opening his eyes, surprised yet thankful for the success of the shot.

Encourage others to avoid perils of wandering

The summer after graduating high school, I headed out with a friend to cruise the Okefenokee Swamp of Southeast Georgia. We had a map that outlined all the places we should expect to find alligators. We also had a very small amount of water to keep us hydrated in the agonizing heat and humidity.

It always pays to do the right thing

In Proverbs 12:22, the scripture says, "The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful." This scripture tells us that God doesn't approve of us telling lies. It really is saying that he hates it when we lie and it makes him happy when we tell the truth.

God will be there, through good, bad times

I have a friend who recently was put in the hospital with heart troubles. That, in and of itself, is not surprising. After all, I am on the north side of 50 years old. Some of my friends are going to encounter health issues. In fact, it could happen to me.

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. After asking for the bike, I waited and hoped.

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. There are many examples to follow, many characters to imitate and many individuals to light the path of our Christian walk as we follow after ...

Homecoming a great time to get involved

I've had homecoming on my mind in recent days. Two Fridays ago, Bryan County High School celebrated homecoming. Today is homecoming at my college. It has been 30 years since I graduated – I was a 9-year-old child prodigy, of course. And Sunday is homecoming at First Baptist of Pembroke.
