Not everyone marching in the parade of life can lead. There must always be the followers. Second best doesn’t mean less-than or incapable. It simply means that we play the part we have to the best of our ability.
There is nothing basically wrong in criticism, it can actually be very good for us. How we do the criticizing and our motives in it are the factors that will make it constructive or destructive.
What if everyone were to say, “I’m just one man”? Many of the changes that benefited the entire world have begun in the heart and mind of one solitary man.
God is concerned about each person personally. He surprises us at times with His nearness as He stoops to hear and help and save.
Laws and rules should protect in spirit and in practice. God’s law is no different and is to be paramount in our daily life, lest we are destroyed by our own inattention.
The life of the believer is to be enjoyed. Laughter and valuing family is just a couple of the ways for us to help ourselves enjoy living our lives.
One must be convinced that we can have victory over life difficulties when we refuse to allow them to defeat us.
Fear will stop us from venturing out unless our focus remains on the mission at hand. Remember, we don’t have to return but we must go when and where Christ calls.
There comes a point in the life of each person when they will decide to follow Christ or not. How will you choose if yours comes today?
Christ occasionally got away from His followers to be alone with The Father to rest and refresh. In His pattern we can find our physical and mental health.
This world is a sinful place. Self-absorbed people are everywhere and in desperate need of The Light of the World. In other words, the very thing we are called to be.
Anticipating life’s problems can be helpful in developing a game-plan but there is a fine line between preparation and fruitless angst.
Interesting thoughts about the life of Thomas Jefferson. Pride must be handled with proper control.
There is a law of seed, time of harvest. The golden rule tells us to do unto others as we would have them do unto us. If your harvest is bad, it’s probably because you have sown bad seed.
Giving is a fundamental principle in the scriptures. Giving of one’s money, one’s time, one’s abilities – giving of one’s self, you could say. Always remember that little kindnesses don’t cost us much and they go a long way.
He who is lowly, meek and poor is the richest man on earth because he who clings to Christ as the center of his life, lives from gratitude for what he has.
Getting ourselves out of the way – losing one’s self – is necessary in order to truly find ones’ purpose.
The historical relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and Edwin Stanton serves as a good reminder of Christ’s command to us in Luke.
A periodic self-check is a good thing to do. The “usual” isn’t to be taken for granted.
Lost items can be difficult to locate. Usually, those items are found in front of our face but we miss them as we’re searching for them so feverishly.
