Rev. Donald E. Wildmon is Founder and Chairman Emeritus of American Family Association (AFA) and American Family Radio (AFR).
God has placed within every human being the desire to succeed. Pushing for the next level of achievement is always better than setting the goal so low it comes easily.
We as humans will never “arrive” so we must keep straining toward the goal because the thrill of life is in the attempts at achieving the next goal.
No one is spared from the trying times of life. It’s how we face them that matters. What centers one’s life determines the approach to that problem solving.
Stocks and wealth are worth far less than our fellow man and we must invest well in the lives of others rather than the things of the world.
In every bad situation Christ saw the good and He expects us to do the same as we seek to be His light to those around us in His world.
The Confederate General found life hard in his later years, but with his conviction and courage intact, he did not take a short-cut that would have made it more comfortable. Righteous indignation has its place and must be used in the face of evil.
Life is difficult and we must weather many challenges. Being thankful when we are in need and when we can bring help to another in need makes life both sweet and meaningful.
Is it vague or does it have substance? What is faith? In reality it is a complete way of life, being sure of the things we hope for and being certain of the things we cannot see.
A life well lived is far better than a long life lived wickedly. Jesus said you must come to the Father as if you are a little child.
The seemingly insignificant moments in life are often the powerful events that alter an entire culture, generation, or nation.
Determination is often the difference between success and failure.
The things we do make a much larger impression on the people around us than the words we say to them.
Just because we’ve always done “it” that way doesn’t make it the best way or the method that best honors God.
Those who make the most noise may be doing so because they are not being heard.
Playing with sin is a lot like playing with fire; one cannot be surprised when burned by it. Sin will always take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you wanted to stay and cost you more than you intended to pay.
Thoughts develop into actions and actions have far reaching consequences for society as a whole.
Many times it appears as if serving God is futile but God, The Judge, has yet to make His final ruling.
Commitments are important as we walk out our Christian faith as we represent Christ and His reputation in and to the world.
Following Christ is not for the faint of heart or the miser – it will cost us everything.
James Doolittle was a visionary and it cost him everything. One must decide early-on that he can & will give of himself, whatever the cost, to the vision.
