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.

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.

Jesus gave us lesson in forgiveness

The love that God showed to us should show in our relationship to others. We need to stand ready to forgive even as God has forgiven us.

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.
