Life Lessons

Every day we are bombarded with news from our communities, and around the world. Disasters, tragedies, wars, environmental issues, politics, corporate scandals, social and lifestyle issues, winners and losers. The media has touched every part of our lives – feeding us the same information on world events and happenings – creating a bond shared among citizens of this planet. This Bible based site draws Life Lessons from the news.

 

Can we learn deeper ‘life’ lessons from the same stories splashed across the news? Every couple of weeks, a new story is added to this section. Why would we add a piece of news here? We hope that by comparing and contrasting parts of the story to the spiritual side of your life, you will dig deeper, and think about your own personal relationship with God.

 

If the life lesson drawn from the story conflicts with your thinking, please email and let us know. If the story has raised a question or concern in your mind, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us personally.

Bridge Over Troubled Water COVID-19

By On April 17, 2020

It’s over 50 years since Simon & Garfunkle released their most popular song Bridge over Troubled Water. But right now, their song is so relevant to all of us. Perhaps we never thought of it as their ‘infrastructure’ song. We usually think of airports, roads, bridges, tunnels, internet, and sewers as elements of the critical infrastructure of society. We take…

The gods of men are falling

Where is God when I Need Him?

By On March 27, 2020

Where is God when I need Him? Is He the 911 Emergency God? Does He really hear my cry for help? Does He know and does He care about my fears and feelings of desperation? Can He calm my storm? Can He save me? Excellent questions to ask – especially when the world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps it…

Nowhere to Turn: COVID-19 and God

By On March 18, 2020

You have heard the expression: up the creek without a paddle. We employ that idiom when we are in big trouble and there appears to be no way out. No one to call for help. No magic wand to wave to make your circumstances go away. No functioning brakes to stop you. No gearshift to slam into reverse, or steering…
