Reason for Hope

Reason for Hope

With the Christmas season upon us, it is time for us to turn our focus on the Birth of Jesus Christ. The days are filled with excitement and anticipation as we prepare to celebrate His birth with family and friends. We remember the joy that He brought to the world and...

Honor Your Wife

Honor Your Wife

One of the vows said at weddings is, “Do you promise to love, honor, and respect her till death do you part?” Millions of husbands have said these views to each other, but do they really know what it means to honor your wife? They would say they do, but their actions...

A Betrayal of a Regular Kind

A Betrayal of a Regular Kind

There is something that happens on a daily basis that goes unnoticed. It is something so deceptive and stealthy that it’s almost natural. What is this mysterious act? It’s called lying. Most people have become so adept at it that they barely even notice what they are...

God Isn’t Finished With You

God Isn’t Finished With You

It is so easy to get discouraged with life. Hopes and plans don’t work out the way we intended them to, and that produces a bit of despair. You start to ask questions like, “What is my purpose in life?” When you begin to follow Christ, the trajectory of your life...

Redeemed From the Empty Way

Redeemed From the Empty Way

One of the biggest arguments on our family trips growing up was over getting lost. It usually started with a lack of preparation coupled with a healthy dose of stubbornness. Arguments broke out, not on what the map said, but the correct route to take there. It led to...

Rejoice in Your Heart

Rejoice in Your Heart

During my time in Malawi, one of the highlights was listening to the worship of the people. They love to worship the Lord. You can listen to a little bit of it here. There is power in lifting our voices in praise to our heavenly Father. Rejoice in your heart today....

The Wrong Wisdom

The Wrong Wisdom

When a bank teller goes through training, they are told to count thousands and thousands of dollars with their hands. The bank wants them to know what the touch of real money is so that when a counterfeit comes through, they automatically know by the touch of their...

Falling Short of God’s Standard

Falling Short of God’s Standard

Did you know that there are hundreds of world-class climbers who spend thousands of dollars each year to climb Mount Everest only to fall short? In fact, it takes the average climber four to five attempts to summit the peak. That is dedication and sacrifice. Did you...

Draw Near to God

Draw Near to God

A medical study a decade ago tracked people recovering from heart surgery. They found that those who were part of a close community healed faster and more completely than those who weren’t. Closeness is always better than distance. In relationships, people are always...

Rich in His Kindness

Rich in His Kindness

This world could use a lot more kindness. People are so mean nowadays that they have developed a term for it, "Cancel Culture." The whole point of this is to point out what the person has done wrong, no matter how long ago it was, and use it to cancel out anything...

Minister to the Needs of the Broken

Minister to the Needs of the Broken

I am just finishing up a week in Malawi as I write this devotion. During that time, I have had the chance to train some pastors on how to teach the Bible, spoke at a church, and visited an orphanage. In between those times, I have traveled extensively through the...

One Slip of the Tongue

One Slip of the Tongue

White water rafting can be successful or disastrous based solely upon the person steering the raft in the back. With a tiny paddle, the guide can maneuver a boat full of rafters through some rough waters. One small mistake and the raft can flip, and everyone will end...

Walk Your Talk

Walk Your Talk

Nobody likes the person who is all talk. Whether they be the expert on everything or the person who has an opinion on anything, if they aren't backing it up with action, you lose your credibility. Walk your talk. That is what James tells us to do. Make sure your...

Quick to Listen

Quick to Listen

One thing you can never prepare yourself for as a parent is how much you will repeat yourself to your children. My kids will ask me a question, and I will answer only to have them ask the same exact question a few minutes later. Then I get in trouble for getting upset...

Boast in Our Needs

Boast in Our Needs

When you read this, I will be in Malawi, Africa, visiting the Kondanani Village Children’s home. Malawi is the poorest country in all of Africa. The average person makes $360 per year. Compare that with the average American who makes $55,000. Automatically our heart...
