Who’s On the Throne?

Who’s On the Throne?

Everyone knows who should, and who should not, sit on the throne. If the throne is in Buckingham Palace, we expect the Queen of England to take the throne…not some random visitor to the palace. If the throne is in the Oval Office, we look for the President of the United States…not one of the White House interns. If the throne is in a court of law, we […]

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

I remember sitting in church with my legs dangling from the pew looking at the rather wide derriere of the lady standing in front of me. Her bouncing hips keeping time as she played the tambourine. She threw her head back as she belted out, “Yes, I’m leaning on Jesus…” My mind wandered as I […]

Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you may believe in Him whom He sent.” (John 6:28-29) In our fast-paced world, it’s easy to believe that doing a lot of things means […]

Is Your Faith a “False-Positive”?

Focusing on someone else’s flaws is always easier than admitting our own, right? So, let’s talk about Peter.

F.A.I.T.H. Works in Business

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. (Thomas E. Lawrence) Just […]
