Good Judgment

Proverbs 9:10 says that knowledge of God produces good judgment. As we get to know God more, we will grow as people of God. We will dig deeper into His Word. We will seek Him more, and when we seek Him, we will find Him. With our eyes fixed on Him and His Word, we […]

Strict Judgment

Many people want to be up front and in the limelight. With social media, more are encouraged to share everything and be in front of everyone. Being in charge, being a leader, being a teacher—these positions of authority come with a great warning. James notes that these people “will be judged more strictly.” Remember that […]

The Road

The other night I left the van windows open. It’s so easy for me to overlook as I’m not sitting back there. Of course it rained that evening. Thankfully it did not rain inside the van. I did not learn my lesson. Last night, I left the van windows open again. This time, the outcome […]

Balancing Truth and Grace

Some people have brought it to my attention that I have a problem balancing truth and grace, hence the reason the Spirit led me to speak often about truth and grace. Often we are not only preaching for others to hear, but God leads us to preach to ourselves as well. Jesus is grace and […]

Grace and Truth

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth… For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. – John 1:14, 17 [ESV] God’s Word is Truth (John 17:17) Jesus […]

Deadly Stew

When Elisha gathered around with the sons of the prophets, there was a famine. Barrenness, sickness, affliction and famine were seen as judgment from God for sin. As we read again and again, the curse of sin is judgment and death. These people were in search for food. When they went around to gather something […]

Lord Shut In

If you read the instructions to Noah, they were very specific. One of the instructions was in Genesis 6:16 where God told Noah to have a door on the side of the ark. One door. This door, this single door, was the only door to pass through to escape the judgment of God. From this […]

One Sneaky Dog

Having two dogs certainly can be entertaining. This morning as I was preparing to leave for work I noticed Marci was walking what looked to be an obstacle course underneath the kitchen table. I did not understand why she was weaving and turning through chairs until I saw where the course brought her. She was […]

Bits and Pieces

I am not a fan of blueberries. I will admit that if there’s a fruit salad, I’ll try my best to not grab too many blueberries with the serving spoon. I pick out the bits and pieces that I like and leave the blueberries for those who like blueberries, or for those who happen to […]
