Correcting with Love

By On February 18, 2020

It must have been one of the most difficult letters for the Apostle Paul to write. He knew these people.  He had lived in Corinth for at least eighteen months – working, preaching, teaching and fellowshipping. The city was infested with corruption and had earned the notorious immoral distinction of being a wicked hub of vice and vulgarity. But God…

Your Letter of Reference

By On February 12, 2020

“Yeah, it’s all put on. He can act like that around older Christians, but when he’s with us, he’s no different than the rest of the gang. In fact, he’s often the ring-leader. So – the guy you see is not quite the same as the one we know. I don’t want to put him down, so I’ll stop there.”…

Firing on All Cylinders: Tune-Ups

By On January 14, 2020

This would be a much simpler Bible Bite to compose if one was a mechanic and understood what an engine cylinder was. People say: “Well, the thing just has no power.” And the response before the days of electric cars used to be: “What else can you expect – it’s only a 4 cylinder!!”  Some enlightened car enthusiasts might be…

Have you been using your calculator app lately to crunch the numbers? Is your wealth increasing at the rate your Investment Manager promised? Are things quadrupling within the timeframes you had envisioned? Perhaps that’s not the question you needed to be asked today.  When the economy goes south or when my stocks don’t perform as well, am I consumed by the…
