  • COLUMN: Invest in your faith in Jesus

    What do you invest in? I know when I say the word investing that most people think about money. And investing for the future and being prepared for life’s little disasters is a good thing, but there is much more to life than money.
    Remember what Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21 NIV). Do you really want your heart wrapped up in your bank account?

  • COLUMN: Jesus paid it all

    Are your taxes done, or are you one of those last-minute people? I am rarely in a hurry about taxes, even if I am owed a refund. I hate seeing what I actually pay.
    According to the Washington Post Wonkblog from Sept. 19, 2012, it looks like the average American pays between 20-25 percent in direct taxes. That doesn’t count all the indirect taxes, like the gasoline tax (60 cents a gallon in Kentucky), or all those taxes that show up on phone bills and cable bills. There are taxes on our electric bills and then, of course, there is always sales tax.

  • COLUMN: We preach Christ crucified

    1 Corinthians 1:21-25 says:
    For since in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

  • COLUMN: Spring break gives a glimpse of summer

    Maybe you didn’t notice, but this week is spring break. The lack of the big yellow buses on the roads is a dead giveaway. But if you are a parent, and especially if you are in school yourself, you know that this week is spring break.
    Spring break is a hopeful taste of summer after a long dreary winter. Spring break reminds us that there is sunshine after the rain, rest after hard work, and the hope of summer ahead.
