Why does God bless the peacemakers

Summer can be a time of fun rather than fuming

Like it or not, parents, this is the time of year when school’s out for the summer… and for approximately three months your kids will be pestering you for things to do, or you’ll be keeping a hawk’s eye on them to see that they aren’t doing something wrong. One of my favorite bumper stickers …

How do the pure in heart see God?

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). “This verse means people that go all out, not halfway, will see God,” says Matthew, age 9. Lukewarm Christians make Jesus nauseated to the point of vomiting. I’m not making this up. Read Revelation 3:16. Have you ever been in love and …

Happy Birthday, America. God has truly showered His grace upon you as a nation. Many people today take delight in attacking America. Many people castigate the U.S. regularly, spewing hate-filled epithets about our nation. The problem is, the leading America-haters are American citizens.

Willing to wait

A pastor decided to change the order of service. He convinced himself that his congregation was bored and disinterested in his messages because they had been following the same format for several years. For years the ushers would take up the offering, the choir would sing and then he would preach. To “mix” things up …
