The Grandmother Who Yelled Treason

God had told Israel that he would provide for them, protect them, and bless them as long as they obeyed him. Israel decided they wanted a King just like all the other nations.  God allowed it, but then the people did not obey him!  They became idol worshipers. We don’t naturally drift toward holiness, we drift toward compromise and call it tolerance. Everyone loves going to grandma’s house, not this...

A Change In Times

Often at the end of year a “Person of the Year” is nominated.  It is usually a celebrity, or perhaps an athlete.  But there is a difference between a person of the year and  a person of significance like the profit of God, Elisha.  It is not those who live for today, but those who live for eternity that are significant to God.

Choices, Part 1

We make choices every day, when to get up, what to wear, where to go, who to talk to, how to respond. The choices that we make are filtered by the of values that we have. For every choice that we make there is a consequence. We are free to make our choices, but we don’t always get to choose the consequence that goes with it.
