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

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.

Just thinking of Heaven, part 2

The Hebrew writer spoke of heaven as entering into a rest. "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest … There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own ...

Whatever the weather, God will be there

The other morning as I was driving through Richmond Hill, I noticed a pleasant sight to my left; it was what I can refer to as not Savannah's famous "waving girl" but Richmond Hill's own "waving man."
