Don't settle for less with the Lord

The day after Thanksgiving, we began our Christmas decorating. It always is my job to get everything down from the attic, put the tree up and put lights on it. My wife does most of the rest. I put a few decorations near the top, including "the topper." Any outside decorations usually are my responsibilities, too.

Life can be ultimate carnival ride

If you are a fan either of the Bulldogs or the Yellow Jackets, you rode that coaster hard last Saturday. In all of my years of watching football (or any other sport), I do not remember a time when a game has swung back and forth like that. Even a basketball game with a one-point difference doesn't feel like that.

Seek the crown, preach the gospel -- part 1

This command was given by our Lord prior to his ascension back into heaven. "And he said unto them, 'Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned'" (Mark 16:15-16). No matter who or what the individual may be - king or beggar, rich or poor, educated or illiterate - the message of the Gospel is for all. It is by this message that man can learn what to do to obtain the grace God offers to all.
