• Faith For Today: Is Jesus a priority in your life?

    The biblical text from today comes from Luke 10:38-42: “As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, ‘Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!’”

  • Faith For Today: Laughter with pure motives brings a smile to God's face

    Reader’s Digest tells us that laughter is the best medicine. Some health studies even show that laughter can have healing power. And the Bible even tells us that laughter and joy can honor God.
    “Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them’” (Psalm 126:2 NIV).

  • 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.
