“Your Father knows what you need before you ask him” (Matthew 6:8). He knew your need before you bowed you head. That means we don’t have to use big words or pray long prayers. We don’t have to worry about getting all the details correct or throw in flowery language when we pray. Just pray. If […]

You’ll never regret being kind. Try to remember that today.
“Hear my cry to you, Lord. Let your word help me understand.” (Psalm 119:169 NCV). Since true understanding comes from the Lord alone we should have the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other. The newspaper tells me what is happening in the world. The Bible tells me what it means.

You can’t run away from the battle. When you hear the sound of cannon fire, you’ve got to pick up your weapon and head for the front line. It’s not enough to say, “I’m a Christian” when the battle is raging elsewhere. You’ve got to stand and fight where the enemy is attacking.

A good prayer for the the new year: “Just a closer walk with Thee, Grant it, Jesus, is my plea, Daily walking close to Thee, Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.” You can sing along with Bart Millard’s fine rendition of this song.
