  • Seeking wisdom

    When I think about having wisdom, I am reminded of King Solomon. If you remember the popular story about David and Bathsheba, Solomon was their only son and also became king of Israel after David passed away. In I Kings chapter 3, we read that Solomon sincerely loved God and obeyed His laws. Verse 4 records him offering 1000 burnt offerings upon the altars at Gibeon and as the story continues we notice that something very special happens to him. “The Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, ask whatever you want and I will give it to you.”

  • Don’t join club of complainers

    Have you ever read this verse in the Bible? “Man who is born of a woman is few of days and full of trouble.” (Job 14:1 ESV)  Now Job is a man who had plenty of troubles, so I can understand how he comes to this conclusion.  But then it occurred to me, I hear a lot of people with the same complaint.

  • Junk drawers

    Every home we have ever lived in we have had a junk drawer.  It is usually in the kitchen somewhere and it collects just about everything.  Looking for a rubber band, it’ll probably be in the junk drawer.  Looking for one of those wire tie things?  Junk drawer!  What happened to the scissors?  They are probably hiding in the junk drawer.

  • Sympathy is not a substitute for action

    We do not have to look very far to find someone that needs a miracle. Many are suffering some type of crisis with everything from health problems, their children, and grieving over a loss, to finances, marriage issues and addictions. When difficult situations are presented, we become sympathetic, but how often do we consider that God may have brought these individuals to our attention so that we can not only pray but to intervene and help meet their needs? Instead of just discussing the situation and having pity, maybe we can become the miracle they are praying for.

  • Doing it the right way

    It is amazing how many things you learn after you get married.  For example, it never dawned on me that there was a wrong way to lay out a dish rag.  When I finished doing the dishes, I would just leave the dishcloth in the sink, usually balled up in the corner.  My new bride informed me that I was doing it wrong.
