Shopping for Apples

Shopping for apples is always a fun time. I am very specific about what apples I purchase, and I rarely will buy a bag of apples. I am the strange person you see in the produce area picking up each piece of fruit, turning it around in my hands, closely examining the entire item before […]

Test and Examine

It is important to look inward daily. The world tells us to look outward. There’s nothing wrong with you. There’s something wrong with someone else. You are free to do as you want—you are free to be who you want to be and think how you want to think. The world tells us it’s okay […]

Altar to God

Jacob wanted to build an altar to God. An altar represents the presence of God—it was how one would have an encounter with God. He recognized the need to be clean before a holy God. He commanded everyone to toss out all of the other gods. They were to rid themselves of anything and everything […]

Like a Cow

In Daniel 4, King Nebuchadnezzar was told he would “eat grass like a cow” if he did not repent and do the right thing (v. 32 NLT). He had twelve months to make the choice but instead he stood on the roof of the palace and overlooked what God had given him. As the king […]

Now in Joshua 9, the people were visited by the Gibeonites who were […]

Passion for the Wrong Things

It is great to be passionate and focused on something. It is good to work hard at whatever you do as if working for the Lord (Colossians 3:17). But as Todd Adkins says, it “doesn’t matter how hard you work if you’re working on the wrong things.” The question is—are you working on the wrong […]

The Bells and Whistles

When I was a little kid, I loved to play pinball. If you look at a pinball machine, you will see it has the paddles at the bottom. Sometimes there are paddles up in different areas as well. There’s lots of noise. You shoot the ball up and the ball’s all over the place. It’s […]
