    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 36. THE RARE JEWEL OF CONTENTMENT

    And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man’s envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. The fool folds his hands and ruins himself.

    NOBILITY   The Legacy of a Godly Wife   A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Proverbs 31:10   The final section of Proverbs is an acrostic, a poem in which each verse begins with a different letter of the Hebrew alphabet. One commentator calls this “an […]

    OPEN-MINDEDNESS   Take Time to Hear Both Sides   The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.

In that sense, tolerance is […]

    Ebook: In His Steps

    No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

    “Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

    “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
