Lessons from Children & Grown Ups

but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven. And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” I have 3 children that I love very much. At the time I’m writing this their ages are 3, 2, and 10 weeks. Today is Sunday and it seems to be a well known fact that Sundays…

Unshakeable Faith

What do you do with Jesus? Throughout Jesus’ earthly ministry there were those who responded in saving belief and those who turned away in unbelief. I read in my quiet time and it began with glimpses of the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus taught these using parables, or stories, to illustrate profound truths.

It scares me of the likely possibility of another such delivery. I left my OB appointment today feeling very discouraged.…

This Little Light of Mine

“Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.” – What sort of circumstances cause you to question God’s character? Are they the…
