ANOTHER BASKET CASE

Remember that we spoke of Moses in a basket; well now we have an adult and a basket. Paul the Apostle had been saved while preparing to destroy the church that was multiplying in Damascus, and he had letters certifying that he was on a legal assignment. Jesus appeared to him in the form ofContinue reading “ANOTHER BASKET CASE”

TAUGHT.HEARD.UNDERSTOOD

Our family had a FAMILY BIBLE! It had all the appearance of having been around since the inception of Bibles. You might understand it’s aged look if you ever lived in Bermuda and experienced the high humidity that constantly engulfs the island. I recall how, on occasion I would look at it, especially the pictures,Continue reading “TAUGHT.HEARD.UNDERSTOOD”

SLAVES TO COMPUTERIZATION

I recall so well in my teen years, in our carpentry shop, how one of our jobs required extensive work involving the preparation of a room to hold a computer. What a job! Naturally, the computer in those days required almost an entire room being prepped for this installation. Gradually, we have mastered the computersContinue reading “SLAVES TO COMPUTERIZATION”

It took less time for me to decide what I would or would not accept. WhileContinue reading “MARRIAGE CONCEPTS”

MANIPULATIVE GIVING

Much is said in Scripture about giving, and additional thoughts surface constantly on tithing. The New Testament emphasizes giving that should originate in the heart of an individual as over against tithing. In reality, the Old Testament giver gave far more than 10% if you add all of his required gifts that should be broughtContinue reading “MANIPULATIVE GIVING”

SO YOUR MEMORY IS SLIPPING

The memory “game” is most interesting… especially when your children and grandchildren say: “Pop! You are getting old; which is the truth! However, the cobwebs of aging that flirts the brain makes me go searching for what I should have remembered. Of one thing I am certain. When in college a few years back, someoneContinue reading “SO YOUR MEMORY IS SLIPPING”
