On The Eve Of My Retirement

On the Eve of My Retirement

And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. Daniel 12:3 (ESV) At the beginning of our Christian walk we know God is good. We know His plan for us is good. But it isn’t until we have journeyed with Him into life that our faith in His goodness is confirmed again and again with each passing day. Today…

50 Reasons Christian Women Shouldn’t Read “Fifty Shades of Grey”

In a few days you will be seeing the trailer for the new movie, 50 Shades of Grey. Because of this I am re-posting this article written by Jay Dennis when the book was released. Jay Dennis, senior pastor of First Baptist Church at the Mall, Lakeland, Florida, describes pornography as the bubonic plague of the contemporary church. Pornography is a hidden sickness that reveals itself long after the damage is done. Jay's God-inspired concern has strengthened him…

Who Is Praying For Your Family?

Who Is Praying for Your Family?

Millions of families were tricking and treating last week. Halloween has become one of biggest holidays in our nation, with millions spent on costumes and candy. The Stay Puff Marshmallow Man comes around the corner and our childhood fears are celebrated in a holiday about goblins and spooks. Most families assume the scariness of Halloween is a pretend night of fearfulness with the reward of getting candy from our friends. And while we know there…

One employee considers an action to be fair while another sees…

Not far from my home is an immigrant community. Hundreds of people coming to America, in search of hope. Unable to speak the language. Jobless. Desperate. Willing to risk crossing borders illegally to find work. How desperate do you have to be to risk your life to illegally enter another country in search of hope? Most of us can’t imagine that level of desperation. I wake up in the morning, arise from a comfortable and…
