Can We Say It Better?  

What is it called when someone thinks that they can do something better than others and they are extremely proud of it? Being arrogant, right? This is something that we can easily be guilty of if we are not careful. I recently made a post on social media proving this very point regarding a few teachings from God’s word. There are people who are extremely bold in teaching things that are completely contrary to the Bible. Shortly after I made the post, I had a few people reach out to me privately going through great lengths to tell me that […]

The Daily Grind  

Whether we want to admit it or not, our “daily grind” speaks to who we are as people. It reveals our identity to others. When I say, “daily grind”, I am referring to our everyday routine. I was a bit saddened when I was researching information for this article and came across a recurring theme regarding the idea of an everyday routine.

What Must I Give Up?

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

I recently […]

Some Should Not Teach

The Preview: “Simply put, there are some who should not teach. They are dangerous. They like to push buttons and see how far they can stretch the envelope of what people will tolerate. They are not bringing an understanding to the Scriptures, but creating doubt, suspicion, and harm.” The Article: Titus 1:10-11 “For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain.” Multiple times in the N.T. there are warnings about the rise […]

What Does Peace Look Like?

Peace may look different to others depending on their circumstances. It is hard to nail down exactly what it looks like. It is almost like nailing Jello to the wall. I may describe peace as being one thing but someone else comes up and says that it is something else. We can come up with all kinds of imagery in our heads to describe peace. In some instances, for me, peace looks like all four of my boys are in their rooms asleep (or at least being quiet), and I am free to sit in my dark living room while […]
