God gave ultimate gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts, especially during the Christmas season. Many people will go into debt buying gifts to give to their kids, families and friends. Often times in the hype of gift giving we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

But the Bible encourages God's people to have a different mindset. We are taught to be givers.

Honor our veterans this weekend

Veterans make innumerable sacrifices every day to protect us. The brave men and women of the armed services go beyond the call of duty to protect our freedoms and ensure we live in a safe country.

Help the Lord through others

I am excited about the parables of Jesus. I have noticed there are multiple lessons in most of the parables Jesus used. The parable of the sheep and the goats as recorded in Matthew 25 is no exception. Jesus says there will be a day when all the nations will stand before Him and He will divide them into two groups.
