    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 32. ORIGINAL SIN

    And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judg­ment-wickedness was there, in the place of justice- wickedness was there. I thought in my heart, “God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed.” Ecclesiastes 3:16-17 […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 35. BROKEN HEARTS ON EVERY CORNER

    Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed-and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their op­pressors-and they have no comforter. And I declared that the dead, who had already died, are happier than the living, who are […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 22. ARE YOU ON GOD’S SIDE?

    22. Are You On God’s Side?   To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gather­ing and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 2:26   […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 31. HERE COMES THE JUDGE

    31. Here Comes the Judge   Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been be­fore; and God will call the past to account. Ecclesiastes 3:15   The wrath of God is a forgotten doctrine, even in the evangelical church. Part of the problem lies in our definition. When we use the word […]

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

    REVENGE   Let God Get Even   Do not say, “I’ll do to him as he has done to me; I’ll pay that man back for what he did.” Proverbs 24:29   There is a man in the Bible who had every right to be angry at the way he was treated. He was a […]

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

    TOLERANCE   A Misunderstood Virtue   A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to over­look an offense. Proverbs 19:11   The dictionary defines tolerance as “respecting the na­ture, beliefs, or behavior or others.” To tolerate someone means to respect his opinion without necessari­ly agreeing with him. In that sense, tolerance is […]

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

    WAITING   Give God Time to Work   Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and he will deliver you. Proverbs 20:22   One commentator notes that this verse is the answer to selfish haste. Often when we are mistreated we rush to get even with our tormentors, […]

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

    Almost everyone agrees that we are living in a day of moral and cultural confusion. Former Secretary of Education William Bennett says that it is almost as if our society has conspired to make it impossible for our chil­dren to grow up as decent, moral individuals. He argues that if we want to improve our […]

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

    BRIBERY   A Fast Train to Destruction   A greedy man brings trouble to his family, but he who hates bribes will live. Proverbs 15:27   Solomon had a lot to say about this subject, nearly all of it negative. For instance, an adulterer cannot bribe his way out of punishment (6:35). Bribery perverts the […]

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

    JUSTICE   The Real American Dream   The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern. Proverbs 29:7   The Pledge of Allegiance ends with these four words: “and justice for all.” Every time you say that, you’re pledging to be part of a nation that will provide justice […]

    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.”
