“…Don’t just listen to me… rather: Listen to Jesus, speaking to you… through your heart.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day catch you by surprise like a trap.  For that day will assault everyone who lives on the face of the earth.  Be vigilant at all times and pray that […]

“…What’s in your wallet…?”

What’s in your wallet? Ephesians 5:6… “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.” All of us, at one time or another, had someone try to ‘suck us into sin’… something wrong, improper, unethical….or dishonorable.  It all started when satan successfully tempted […]

“…Husbands… LOVE your wives. Wives… LOVE your husbands…”

The ‘Wicked Tongue.’ I’m thinking of the hearings regarding the Supreme Court nominee… and how appropriate this scripture might be.  Seemingly, to me, it DEFEATS all that St. Paul warns us against in his letter to the Ephesians… What do you think?  Ephesians 5:1-9 …Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in […]

“…I left a lasting… BAD impression. I admit…I say… and do, some of the dumbest things… sometimes…”

Well…. ABNORMAL… is my NORMAL:  I’ve always been thought of as being a bit on the ‘weird’ side… (Ask my wife and children)… and have come to accept… that my ‘abnormality’ is actually my NORMAL.  And, it fits me pretty well.  Being abnormal has taken me pretty far in this most confusing world. Might I […]

“…Just LISTEN…. we are not alone….”

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community…. As told to us […]

“…When our time is complete here on earth…. Will God recognize us as a believer… in Him… or…?”

Bad People: And, what happens to them … Matthew 13:36-43 – When Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son […]

“…It’s so easy to be kind… and so hard to be unkind…”

Good FREE stuff:  Not many of us have the resources to ‘give’ very much to anyone.  We’re too busy trying to carve out a slice of life for ourselves… support our family, tend to our career, or education… or for some… just surviving.  Helping others could be ‘very difficult.’ Then, there’s church… and the minister […]

“…Just THINK… how much better off I’d be… if I was listening to ‘others’ … all those years, rather than ‘listening to myself’…”

Can you hear me now?  When we ignore what others … and what they have to say… it’s the same as us saying… ‘You don’t count… but I do.’  We are saying that our thoughts, words, and deeds… are more important than you… and what you have to say.’  You are not important. James 1:19-21- […]

“…God intends for us to ‘share’ His gifts… with each other…”

The Apostle Paul tells us in his letter to the Ephesians to… Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ…  God forgave you.  Ephesians 4:31-32 So… what does this mean to us […]
