Accept It

Proverbs 19:20,21 Listen to counsel and accept discipline, that you may be wise the rest of your days. Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord will stand.

Great Faith

Luke 7:9 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, “I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith.” (NASB)   Jesus said these words about a person. Do you know who? Think for a second before you…

Josiah’s Reform

In the thirty-one years of his rule, King Josiah proved to be a faithful man of God and a great king of Judah. He served God from the beginning as a young king and grew into a greater understanding of God’s will and a determination to follow that will. He made a covenant with God…

Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk

Recently during dinner two of my children ignored an instruction which resulted in a glass of milk getting knocked over.  The two offenders’ consequence was that they had to clean up the mess without grown-up help. One child had a smile break out and thought that they got off easy. The other child began crying…
