Loving Your Enemy

Loving Your Enemy

There was a great video this week of Tom Brady, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, being asked by a young boy how to deal with the “Haters?” His response was to love them because we don’t return the hate. That’s a big thing to say, especially from someone...

Pick Yourself Up

Pick Yourself Up

Once, when I was in Jr. High, I was bucked off a horse. I was riding with a group at a summer camp, and two horses on either side of me closed in on my horse, and he rose up on his back legs and off I went. I got back up on the horse and rode back to camp. When we...

What is Your Compass

What is Your Compass

I was never a Boy Scout, but I was a Cub Scout. One of the skills I learned was how to use and read a compass. We were taught to find true north and determine from there where we needed to go. I got to do an exercise like this with my boys a couple of years ago, and...

It’s a Matter of the Heart

It’s a Matter of the Heart

Have you ever been around someone who has a big heart? By that I mean they care for others and are so giving? What makes them so attractive is not their physical appearance but their attitude. People are drawn to them because they feel valued and appreciated. It’s a...

Winning the Battle of the Flesh

Winning the Battle of the Flesh

What is your biggest weakness? Does your will power crumble every time you get near a donut? Perhaps you struggle with retail therapy? All of us have areas that we struggle to deny ourselves. Paul tells us that it is normal. There is a desire to do the right thing,...

Out With the Old

Out With the Old

Experts say that it takes three weeks to break a habit and three weeks to form a new one. That may be a bit over generalized, but the principle is true. It takes work to stop doing harmful things as well as beginning positive ones. If we give in to every desire and...

Set Free to Grow

Set Free to Grow

One of my favorite things to do is to shop at a farmer’s market. The selection of fruit and vegetables along with the unique crafts from vendors make it a unique experience. Fruit is a metaphor that is used in the Bible multiple times to represent growth and new life....

Get Off of My Lawn!

Get Off of My Lawn!

I hate weeding my yards. I will mow and edge all day long but asking me to get on my knees and pull weeds is unbearable. The problem is that if I don’t pick them, they begin to infest the lawn I spend so much time on. Pretty soon the grass is all choked out and it...

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

Have you ever done something dramatic to show your love to someone? Maybe you proposed to your spouse in a romantic setting. Perhaps you went to great expense to help out a family member. Whatever it was you wanted to show them how much you loved them. Did you know...

The Struggle with Self-Control

The Struggle with Self-Control

There has always been a debate in the church about how much alcohol a Christian is should drink. There are loud voices on both sides offering their opinions. The real issue is those who are struggling with alcoholism and overindulgence of food. There is a significant...

Secret to Success

Secret to Success

There is no shortage of books and articles that tell you how to be successful. Now success can happen in many areas. Most want to be rich or famous, but some want to be an expert in their field. If you read any material, they will usually tell you that you have to set...

Time Stealers

Time Stealers

The average worker takes twenty minutes to get back to his work once he is distracted. The average person spends seven hours on his smartphone each day. Five billion videos are watched on Youtube every day. That is a lot of wasted time that doesn’t produce anything of...

What do we do when we miss the mark

What do we do when we miss the mark

It’s basketball season and every day I see at least one video of a team hitting a shot at the buzzer to win the game. Just last night my team, UCLA, came back from 17 points down with a little over two minutes to go to win the game in over time. They scored 9 points...

God Doesn’t Play Favorites

God Doesn’t Play Favorites

Were you ever the last picked in a playground game? I know I have been and remember what it felt like. It was often a popularity contest where the team captains chose their friends. Sadly, it doesn’t change much as adults. Too many times leaders show partiality....

Overlook the Offense

Overlook the Offense

Very few things are more heartbreaking than when the relationship with a friend is broken. The pain and heartache that we go through are more than some people can bear. When you drill down to the source of the problem you can usually find two culprits, one person was...
