A teeny, tiny leak in the AC unit taught a huge life lesson once. For man to function as he is intended; to fulfill his purpose, he must be diligent, always examining himself for the smallest evidence of sin in his life. Upon finding them he must quickly repent and yield himself once again to the Creator for readjustment.
Children see things differently than grown folks do. We aren’t born with racial prejudice; it’s learned from others. But it doesn’t have to be learned because we can keep the child-like perspective, seeing the mustache rather than the skin color.
There are many characteristics of Barnabas the apostle that we should apply to our lives today. Risking much to do good to others; there’s always a need for a Barnabas.
Human beings put off things. Sometimes we struggle needlessly because of our lack of attention to small things. It often hurts more and longer to correct a situation than if we had simply not have procrastinated.
God can use the seemingly insignificant stuff of life, such as a comic strip, to speak truth to our hearts and teach us the lessons of life well-lived.
The impact of one life completely yielded to Christ will reach far beyond that life. Throughout the world and throughout the centuries we see God changing lives once thought lost in ruin through the Salvation Army.
John Wesley’s life proves that God can and will take all of life’s circumstances to bring glory to His Son when Christ is truly at the center of one’s life.
Words can soothe, or they can cut, when spoken from wrong motives. We can choose to build up others or tear them down and most often all that is needed are the wrong words.

Being judged as too young and too little doesn’t have to stop us from and accomplishing our purpose. Just look at the life of Russell Conrad.
Twelve were sent; only two, Joshua and Caleb returned with the opinion that, indeed, the Israelites could take the land God had promised. When God speaks He expects His man to respond in obedience, regardless of what the man’s eyes tell him.
How do we overcome when life’s bumps and bruises turn into tragedy? We can learn much from the young boy who became revered and remembered as the greatest speaker in Greece, Demosthenes.

When in need, help often comes in the forms we least expect. Living from the truth of the Scripture, that is doing, is always more important than the hearing and not doing. It’s not what we know; it’s what we do with what we know.
How one responds to the losses in life determines how well we learn the lessons in those losses. Our best efforts are not always enough for the win but, our best efforts are all we are required to give.
Traps come in all shapes and sizes. Sin is one such trap. We may play around with it and get by for a while but the trap of sin will be sprung and we will be caught up in it. Beware that greed doesn’t seize you like a monkey.
