QUICKIE LICKITY

These, in all probability, catch more attention than long, drawn out dissertations.  Of course some individuals are really not interested in what another says on any given subject.  I must illustrate:  From Psalm 103—“He has not dealt with us according to our sin, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.  For as high as theContinue reading “QUICKIE LICKITY”

Corinthian Catastrophe

When a congregation has at least fourteen major problems, you can be certain that there are other problems “hidden” in a closet that have not been disclosed.  Given the ways disgruntled individuals begin digging in dirt and make mountains out of molehills, you can believe that even the smallest disagreement can be maximized. Much isContinue reading “Corinthian Catastrophe”

“SEE THIS WOMAN!”

Jesus was reclining, so she went to his feet. In all of our lives there are experiences that we might call “incongruous”!  They happen at the most inappropriate moment; they could not have happened at a more undesirable place.  Everything at that instant seems “why here?”  There are many other locations for such an eventContinue reading ““SEE THIS WOMAN!””

TWO SONS

It seemed logical to Him. You barely get into your reading of the Scripture, when you discover how different two sons of the same parents can develop.  Adam and Eve had numerous children according to Genesis 5; however we are only informed of Cain and Abel initially.  Others enter the picture as more specifics areContinue reading “TWO SONS”

“God cannot forgive a sin twice!” It was never my privilege to hear the great preacher Dr. F.B.Meyer, however, I have been honored to have a number of his books in my library.  In fact, when we were married, our dear friend Dan Bartkow gave us a little book on marriage that was authored byContinue reading “FOREVER IS FOREVER”

FORGIVENESS IS BLESSED!

Personally, I have experienced that beautiful moment when God heard my cry for help and forgiveness was experienced… Meandering through the 32nd Psalm one is reminded of what the past was like and what it is in the present.  Contrast is written throughout and its effect can have on one who is going through theContinue reading “FORGIVENESS IS BLESSED!”

DEAR OLD JOB

Few are they, who cannot in one way or the other, identify with Job.  If I do not have the identical experiences, I have encountered some extended times of physical, mental or emotional frustrations that I thought would never end.  Worse than anything was that in trying to identify the reasons behind them; I foundContinue reading “DEAR OLD JOB”

A NEEDED VISION

I receive numerous words of appreciation for these BLOGS.  My deepest appreciation for your comments, in the majority, positive!   Because of time limitations, we find it impossible to respond to you for on-line discussion.  I have but one purpose, TO MAKE YOU THINK.  If I am successful in that area, the Holy Spirit Himself willContinue reading “A NEEDED VISION”

FAMILY TIES

Much is said throughout the Scriptures about family ties.  Their importance cannot be over emphasized.  Many a young person looks forward to rearing their own family, only to discover that it was not as easy as they thought.  Some believe their parents fell short, which they will not duplicate, while others thought them to beContinue reading “FAMILY TIES”
