  • Jesus has a better way to overcome evil in world

    “Where was your Jesus-God when the crazed kid killed and wounded folks in Tucson?,” an angry and frustrated friend asked. “Couldn’t he have stopped such an evil act?”
    He was there, for sure! At the back of the crowd, weeping for God’s children who ignored him as he showed them his way, as they ignored Jesus’ presence in our lives (Matthew 23:37, 38).
    It was the same place the savior stood when you had an abortion, because you weren’t willing to have your life interrupted by a baby.

  • What is so valuable that you'd sell everything for it?

    What do you collect? Some collect cars, dolls, coins or toys, and I have even heard of someone who is collecting yarn to make the world’s largest yarn ball.
    In Matthew 13:45-46, Jesus tells of a merchant who searched after fine pearls. This merchant found a pearl of great value. Do you know what he did? He went and sold all that he had and bought that pearl.

  • Why is it so much easier to see others' shortcomings

    Parking is hardly ever convenient, and, in most cases, turns out to be a discouraging part of the driving experience. It seems to me that much of the problem is related to our obsession with comfort. We would like to park as close as possible to our destination, and so we invent ingenious ways of achieving that goal. In this respect, I’m just an average American driver.
