Have you ever judged someone without knowing all the facts? Have you ever been influenced by the opinions of others? How much validity do you put in the winding grapevine? What determines your opinion about another individual? Based on the above questions, have you ever found yourself on the wrong side of the scale? Have you ever made a judgment about someone who you later found out was innocent of the human arrows of judgment?
Facts must precede judgment. Hearsay has destro

“Oh, no!” I was parked in the front room of our home in Luxembourg, comfortably relaxing after a long day when I heard the sounds of a budding cat fight coming from our front porch.
I went to see and sure enough, our little black cat Betty, was faced off against the neighbor’s big cat. I imagine Betty would have loved to run away, but this was her turf, and even a cat has her pride.
The easy solution was to make loud, threatening no
God gave man the greatest present of all—Jesus Christ! The Redeemer and rescuer of wayward man. Believing in Jesus will not only save your soul but will make it possible for you to have a personal relationship with God.
God made man for this very thing.
When we feel an emptiness or a lostness that nothing earthly can satisfy, a relationship with God is the only cure. To facilitate this relationship with God, He sent His Son to help us find our way.
Never underestimate what God can do in your life.
He can make the impossible possible.
He can take any bad situation and turn it around.
His love is beyond words.
So thank Him daily for all He's is doing for you.
Is it possible to be a Believer, yet not be a disciple? There are many Christians that believe in Jesus, yet the evidence of their belief is not displayed by their lives. Can a person be saved, yet be void of Biblical actions? Can one accept Jesus and live a life of non-commitment? Is it possible for a Christian to achieve Eternal Life without being a disciple?
Jesus laid out the requirements to be a true disciple. Needless to say, the call to discipleship is a 100% commitment.
Luke 1:30-37 KJV
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. 31…And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son and shall call his name Jesus. 32…He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall unto him the throne of his father David. 33…And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34…Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know
You’ll be pleased to know I’m not writing this to ask for money (but I wouldn't turn down any either.) I’m making due with what I have now. The real reason is because I’m homesick.
Some places around here appear nice on the surface, but dangers lurk in the shadows waiting for their opportunities when I let down my guard.
I’ve heard people speak double-talk and seen them double-cross one another.
I’ve listened to half-truths and bold-faced lies.

Jesus’ ministry was to glorify God. The Holy Spirit’s ministry was to glorify Jesus. To glorify means to honor and praise. Jesus’ message was to reveal God’s Word to the “chosen.” The Holy Spirit’s message was to reveal Jesus’ Word to the Believer. Jesus’ obedience to God’s Word brought honor and praise to His Heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit brings glory and honor to Jesus by opening an understanding of the Word to the saints. When we speak, live, and display the Word, we honor not onl

“Who Stole Turkey Day??”
by Sandy Kay Slawson
Caroline Fleming thought she might scream if she heard the term “Turkey Day” one more time, especially if one of her kids said it. When had she failed as a mother? “Happy Turkey Day,” her twelve-year old son Ethan yelled as he entered the kitchen. “Ahhh!” She’d done it. She’d lost her mind...
My mouth was as dry as the dusty desert I live in. I checked in and was told to sit until called. All my life I have feared having my eyes damaged accidentally or on purpose. I love to read, I love to write, what if something went wrong? Here I was sitting in the waiting room of an eye surgeon, biting my nails, preparing for cataract removal from my right eye—the left one will be in a couple of weeks.
Fortunately, I remembered Joshua 1:9, “Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage!

Focus is on the latter part of verse 13: “with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.”
Every action is an offering,
ourselves, poured out.^
By word, expression—in ev’ry deed,
God shall see salt.^^
Salt, the flavoring of Life,
from Heaven, poured.
Like the forgiven forgive and the blessed tithe,
received salt, shared with the Lord.
Our trust, grounded to obedie
