SMALL INCREASES OVER TIME I had just handed my newborn son over to my wife so I could grab our oldest son (who fell asleep on the couch) and put him in his bed. This is something I’ve always done from the time our oldest was very young. Anytime he fell asleep on the couch after we watched a movie, had a family game night, or something along those lines, the tradition has been for me to pick him up…

JUST THE WAY IT GOSE (GOES) 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.      —Galatians 1:8 10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. —1 Corinthians 1:10 Consider…

WHILE THE DOOR IS OPEN We’ve likely all been there, trying to get to that one store before the doors are locked, the sign is flipped, and our opportunity to get this or that has closed, having to be put off until the next day. I found myself in such a position not too long ago. The family and I were out of town, and needed to make a stop at the grocery store to get some water and snacks…

DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS I was recently browsing the web for a product I was interested in, and I wanted to see how internet prices compared to the same or similar items I could purchase in store. Seeing an item that the wife and I were both happy with, I decided to be a responsible consumer and read the reviews. Reviews can oftentimes be a great help when questioning the quality of a product we have no way of seeing in person,…

ABIDE IN CHRIST Have we ever left a dinner plate out overnight, putting off the need to wash and clean it for the next morning? If there was one chore I disliked growing up, it was doing dishes. Now, I’ll do them, but I won’t be happy about it. Should you ever catch me standing in front of a sink with my rubber gloves on, don’t let the smile fool you as its presence is simply holding back the tears.…

WHEN ONE OPINION MATTERS             Sports fan or not, most people have heard the name Babe Ruth. For years this man has been considered one of this best to ever play the game of baseball. Not my personal opinion, but it is the opinion shared by many fans of baseball. And again, most people are familiar with the name. But I dare to say most people have never heard the name Babe Pinelli. Pinelli was also a profession baseball player from…

THE GOD WHO LEADS AND LISTENS             The question was asked “What would you rather have, a God who listens or a God who speaks?” Should one answer that question with a desire to have the former, that is a God who listens, we can conclude that such an individual probably has a greater desire to be heard than to be taught. It could be argued that this person is self-centered, wanting a God who is going to do nothing more…

THE HERO AMONG US During marine basic training a drill instructor wanted to perform a bravery test among the recruits. He took a pine cone, threw it in the midst of them and yelled, “Grenade!” Every single one of the trainees immediately turned away from the grenade and hit the ground. In response to the actions of the marines, the drill instructor said “Just as I suspected, not a hero among you. Didn’t anyone want to jump on that grenade…
