Try to be ready

I just received news that my favorite uncle is close to passing away. He had cancer a few years ago that went into remission but recently it returned. The good news is that he has trusted Christ for forgiveness and has assurance of where he will end up after death.

Be generous with your gift to God

One of the funniest lines I've ever read was in a newspaper in Las Vegas, Nevada, the day after the Southern Baptist Convention met there in the late 1980's. I know, who would have thought that Southern Baptists, of all people, would meet in Las Vegas. But we did, and evidently made an impression on a number of people. The writer simply stated, "Ten thousand Southern Baptists descended on Las Vegas earlier this week with a twenty dollar bill in one hand, and a copy of the Ten Commandments in the other. They didn't break either one ...

Remember the importance of family

I remember being in church a number of years ago when my pastor was making closing announcements. The week had been designated "Home and Family Week," and family had been the sermon topic for the day.

Walk the journey with Jesus, not alone

Some today are making life's journey without Jesus. They have never realized how much He is needed in each and every person's life. Others believe that if one member of their family is religious then that is enough for the whole family. This simply is not true, for each person is accountable for themselves.

Church mothers play important role

"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."

The Lord has a plan, purpose for all stages of life

There can be no denying this one fact: I'm getting older. If the mirror doesn't remind me, there are always those feeble attempts at running. I feel like Fred Flinstone's car. In my mind things are moving, but I'm getting nowhere. There was the time when I could run all day long, barely breathing hard. But that day is long gone.

God has answers to life's questions

Man, it seems, has always had questions about something since the beginning of time. Some have sailed the oceans to search for new lands just to answer the question, "What is out there?" Others have searched the world over to find the answer to the questions of life.

Those with titles have responsibilities

The other evening I was helping my wife with a drama performance that she instructs for our local community education department. As the kids were getting ready for their pre-performance practice, one of the kids started talking to me about a performance of "Charlie Brown" that is using our church facility this weekend. He went on to make a statement and question that I had never been presented with.

Keep God's word fresh, consistent

Not long ago I was telling one of my sons about a trip I took the summer I turned 16 years old. I was telling it as if he already knew the basic facts, and I was filling in some details. But then he said something that surprised me.

One thing must never change: Lord's message

God's word must be presented as He has delivered it to man without change. Notice the following passages; "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you" (Deut. 4:2), "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar (Prov. 30:6), "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall ...

Everyone still has lessons to learn

The other day I took two of my grandsons fishing at our community dock. They have been after me to take them for months and a time finally opened for me to fulfill one of my many duties. I had some frozen shrimp that I had caught with a castnet last fall and we headed to the water.
