  • Wholly Devoted, yet Wholly Not

    Wholly Devoted, yet Wholly Not

    Can you be wholly devoted to God, yet not rely on Him? Can you be wholly devoted to the Lord, yet miss Him? The answer seems to be – “Yes.” There was a king of Judah named Asa.  It says in 1 Kings 15:14 that Asa “was wholly devoted to the Lord all his days.”  […]

    He Was Good. So God Allowed Him to Die.

    I came across a wild verse the other day.  It is 1 Kings 14:13: “All Israel shall mourn for him and bury him, for he alone of Jeroboam’s family will come to the grave, because in him something good was found toward the Lord God of Israel in the house of Jeroboam.” This verse comes […]

    Are You An Edge Or A Middle? Do You Feel Like You Are Being Chiseled? Do You Care?

    My mom and I built a patio outside my dining room over Christmas.  We were nuts because it was a LOT of work, but it came together and looks really good.  I have converted my dining room to a study so as I sit and write this morning, I am looking at my new patio […]

  • In This New Year – Do NOT Cut Your Hair.  Seriously.

    In This New Year – Do NOT Cut Your Hair. Seriously.

    Samson’s story is tragic.  And I do mean T-R-A-G-I-C.  At times I can barely ready it.  I keep finding myself saying.  “No, Samson!  Don’t do it!” But he does.  And I cringe.  I wonder how many times God cringes when I go about my day.  Probably more than I want to admit.  But I digress. […]

  • Nativity Misconception – The Manger

    Nativity Misconception – The Manger

    Sometimes the Nativity becomes something a little “magical” or “romantic” to us.  Aww, we think, the donkeys and the baby and the halos above the parents.  The shepherds bowing, the wise men…. But the wise men didn’t arrive when Jesus was born.   Most scholars believe they arrived at least a year – if not […]

    Nativity Misconception – Children Shepherds?

    We learned last week about the donkey and the lamb at the birth of Jesus.  Now let’s talk about the shepherds.  We visualize the shepherds surrounding Jesus as scruffy middle age men. But where they? Something came to my attention the other day.  I listened to a tape by Ray Vanderlaan.  Awesome, by the way. […]

    Nativity Misconception – The Donkey and The Lamb

    After Jesus was born, they had to present Him at the temple.  The sacrifice Mary and Joseph brought was the offering of the poor – a pair of turtledoves (or pigeons).  If they could afford it, the law required a lamb and a dove (or pigeon), but Joseph and Mary did not have the means. […]

    The Ride Requires The Wait

    I took my son to Disney last week.  Wow.  It is quite a place.  The amount of stuff there is mind-boggling.  There was one ride in particular that still stands out in my mind.  It’s called Fast Track.  It is something else.  You design your own car in about 5 minutes and then get into […]

    Bathe In The Ashes. Daddy Says So. Here’s Why.

    When we read the account of the Israelites wandering in the desert, our eyes tend to glaze over.  There are SO many laws, SO many rules, and SO many things that just seem weird to us.   Take this one for instance: “The priest shall take cedar wood and hyssop and scarlet material and cast […]
