  • Faith For Today: Jesus is the good samaritan
  • Faith For Today: Shine like a firefly

    I love sitting outside on a summer evening and watching the fireflies come out. As the sun fades and darkness spreads, suddenly little sparks of light spring up. They flash for a moment, go out, then a moment later flash a little farther off.
    Some yards and fields seem to glow, alive with sparkling fireflies. Like most kids I’d catch a few and put them in a jar, but they aren’t nearly as amazing in a jar. It was much more fun to gently catch them and then let them fly flashing away. I confess, sometimes I still do that.

  • COLUMN: Jesus is for you
  • COLUMN: Caution — Watch out for spiritual blind spots

    I think it has probably happened to every driver at one time or another. We’re changing lanes on the highway after doing everything right and suddenly a car is right there beeping the horn. You checked the mirror, you glanced over your shoulder and didn’t see a thing, but there he is. The blind spot has struck.
    What was a simple lane change now holds the potential for disaster. We have to make quick adjustments, moving back into our own lane.

  • Faith for Today: The cost of following Jesus
  • Faith For Today: Why not open your Bible right now?

    When I was a kid I loved to go to the mailbox. It was like Christmas every day. A letter from a relative, a catalog full of marvelous gadgets, occasionally a package, a birthday or thank you card, you never know what might be hiding inside the mailbox. It wasn’t until I got older that I understood about the bills that come, but even today, I still get a little thrill opening that mailbox. Maybe something wonderful will be inside.

  • COLUMN: Warning lights ahead

    The other night my wife and I came upon an accident that had just happened.
    Thankfully no one was hurt, but the cars were stopped in the middle of a very dangerous stretch of road.  From either direction you couldn’t really see the wreck until you were right on it!
