Are You a True Ambassador?

Are You a True Ambassador?

Just a quick note: My e-book “Beautiful Imperfection” is on sale the entire month of October for only $0.99. http://amzn.to/1bxHHda. Are You a True Ambassador? I was reading an article the other day, and the author mentioned how Christians are an ambassador for Christ. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard the terms used, but I didn’t give it much thought before. For some reason when I think if an ambassador, I think politics. And …

The Battle Cry of Disrespect

The Battle Cry of Disrespect

Unless you’ve been under a rock or out of the country, I’m sure you’ve heard the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick kneeling for the National Anthem in support of Black Lives Matter. People claim he can’t associate with African-American males on the street because he was raised by white parents and makes millions of dollars. A lot of people are angry because they see his kneeling as a sign of disrespect. Teaching Them Early Okay. I …

Why Does God Allow It?

Why Does God Allow It?

Gang violence takes an innocent life. Rape among college sports stars is on the rise. A child gets harmed by another. People ask all the time how God can allow bad things to happen if he loves us. VIOLENCE EVEN OCCURS IN CHRISTIAN HOMES God doesn’t tempt a predator by putting children in his sites any more than He put 50 Shades of Grey into the hands of Christians. God gives us free will to …

What other profession?

What other profession?

The school year has begun. Children and teachers are heading to school for another year of fun and learning. A great scripture always comes to mind at this time of year. Psalm 32:8 reads, I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. That is a perfect description of a good teacher. A school bus the other day got me thinking of everything …

Spiritual Olympians

Spiritual Olympians

The Olympics are over and the athletes from the United States did a wonderful job. It was nice to see a lot of the winners give the glory to God. To become such a good athlete takes a lot of time each day. Michael Phelps spends six hours, six days a week in the pool and working out. Simone Biles does about the same with thirty-two hours per week dedicated to her training. In order …

A Long Wait

A Long Wait

I was listening to a news story about a Hello Kitty Restaurant that had opened in California. Some of the lines went so long; there was a four-hour wait. Then there’s the Frozen ride at Disney – five hours to get on the ride in some instances. And we’ve all heard about people who wait days, sometimes even weeks, for the latest electronic gadget. If we can do this for a ride or for bragging …

Where’d Respect Go?

Where’d Respect Go?

I was heading to work the other day when a Fire Rescue Unit with his sirens on came up behind the traffic. I slowed though the vehicle was in the other lane. I was amazed by how many people sped around me and then passed the emergency vehicle. That got me thinking about society these days and the lack of respect we seem to have as Americans. We all demand to be respected, yet few …

Haunting Words

Haunting Words

Have you ever said something that actually came back to haunt you? We see this all the time among politicians when they claim they will not raise taxes, then in the long run, or in order to get their projects complete, they have no choice. It’s not just in politics this occurs. We might know a lady at church we’re not too fond of. If she gets a new car, we get a jolt of euphoria …
