The Message

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Mic. 6:8 ESV) God’s prophets were writing to the nation of Israel trying to get them to return to God. He was tired…

A Bison Tale

Yellowstone National Park is an amazing place. We loved our trip. While showing my bison herd video to Bill Goben, the director of the Yellowstone Bible Camp, he told me the following story: Bill was riding his motorcycle through Yellowstone when he came upon a bull bison walking casually along the road. Being aware of…

Love and Pride

What would be the opposite of love? Several words come to mind, but what about pride?   Think about it in comparison to Paul’s description of love.   Love is: Patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, does not dishonor others, is not self-seeking, is not easily angered, keeps no record…

The Heart of David

God describes David as a man “after God’s heart.” Even though he was not a perfect man, we can easily understand God’s description of David. He was a man who listened to God and sought to praise Him. His heart was filled with praises to God. He listened to God – in his anger, in…

Out Of Date

Back in the early eighties, I received my first office computer. I remember the man who set it up telling me that I had a computer more powerful than the computer used when we landed a man on the moon. He then said, “You will never need a more powerful computer.” Wow, was he ever…
