Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

Who is the biggest liar in the world? How about in the universe? It’s not some political figure head. It’s not some crazy leader of an Asian country threatening nuclear war. It’s Satan. The devil will tell you lies to get you to turn away from God. And if you turn away, he’s won. Satan will tell you you’re no good, you’ll never change. That’s a big one he uses on people who have done …

Getting Others to Believe

Getting Others to Believe

Do you consider yourself a good Christian? Would you like your children, spouse, sister, brother, or other people close to you to believe in Jesus? The best way to convince others to believe in your God is to act like you believe also. Kids are good at spotting the hypocrites in a crowd. They can tell whether you actually believe what you say.

That doesn’t include the money people put out for snacks, tickets to …

A Knee-Jerk Reaction

A Knee-Jerk Reaction

The past week, the media has been filled with news of Congress coming up with a way to curb violence in our schools due to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. The main reaction appears to be outlawing assault rifles. As with anything done in such a quick fashion, this is a knee-jerk reaction to fear.

Giving it Up

Giving it Up

We have a tendency to want to fix things ourselves, whether it is a broken faucet or bad paint job. We know we’ll save money if we do it instead of hiring someone to fix it for us. However, fixing things in our life without God’s help can be quite costly. How many times have we tried to come up with our own solution to fix our finances? Maybe we refinanced our house. You got …
