    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 16. AM I WISE OR AM I FOOLISH?

    16. Am I Wise or Am I Foolish?   I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as light is better than darkness. The wise man has eyes in his head, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realize that the same fate overtakes them both. Ecclesiastes 2:13-14   Sergei […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 17. TEMPORARY ADVANTAGES

    17. Temporary Advantages   Then I thought in my heart, “The fate of the fool will over­take me also. What then do I gain by being wise?” I said in my heart, “This too is meaningless.” For the wise man, like the fool, will not be long remembered; in days to come both will be […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 18. I HATED LIFE

    18. I Hated Life   So I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me. All of it is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 2:17   “Sometimes I get so lonely it’s unbelievable. Life has been so good to me. I’ve got a great wife, good […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 1. SCOTT’S STORY

     1. Scott’s Story     The words of the Teacher, son of David, king in Jerusalem: “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly mean­ingless!

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 3. THE TREADMILL

    3. The Treadmill   Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 8. WHAT KNOWLEDGE CAN’T DO

    8. What Knowledge Can’t Do   I thought to myself, “Look, I have grown and increased in wisdom more than anyone who has ruled over Jerusalem be­fore me; I have experienced much of wisdom and knowl­edge.” Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Patience

    PATIENCE   The Waiting Game   Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32   Regarding this verse, John Phillips points out the dif­ference between Joab and David. As David’s chief general, Joab knew how to take a city. In many ways […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Perspective

    PERSPECTIVE   No Milk Without Manure   Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty, but from the strength of an ox comes an abundant harvest. Proverbs 14:4   Every farmer understands this verse. If you want a clean stable, get rid of the oxen. But if you want cat­tle, you’ve got to put […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Praise

    PRAISE   Can You Handle It?   The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested by the praise he receives. Proverbs 27:21   For every person who can handle success, there are a thousand who can handle failure. As bad as it hurts to be on the bottom, sometimes it […]

    SECURITY   Hope Beyond the Grave   When calamity comes, the wicked are brought down, but even in death the righteous have a refuge.

    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.”
