My heart hurts for someone close to me that is dealing with a greedy person. I do not understand greed and selfishness. I never have.  I am just not a selfish person.  I completely understand needing to be somewhat selfish at times, (like that long bath alone after a long day) but to put yourself first above everyone else, especially …

Every day.Proverbs 27:19 says, “As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man.”In Matthew 15 Jesus was teaching and told a parable. Verse 10 says, “Jesus called the crowd to Him and said, “Listen …

This sounds completely backwards, but it is just how God works. Proverbs 25: 21 & 22 says, “If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.”Let me explain what I think this means. First …

I bet you are surprised by this title, aren’t you? I am always talking positive about God and how He loves us and stuff. I ran across this Scripture and felt led to share it.Proverbs 6: 16-19 says, “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to Him: 1. haughty eyes2. a lying tongue3. hands that shed innocent blood4. …

This is not a perfect world. There are some terrible things here.If we are all honest, we all struggle with something. We aren’t perfect, which is OK! God doesn’t expect us to be perfect. (No one else should either. Even ourselves.)My struggle is still my thoughts about myself. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think, “Yuck”. I don’t like …

Proverbs 22: 6 says this, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”That sounds awesome, doesn’t it?Well, guess what?! It’s not always like this.Legalism will tell you that if you raised your child by their “way” and then they turn from it, “YOU” did something wrong.That’s not …

Have you ever had one of those weeks where it just seemed like something bad happened every day?Maybe someONE happened everyday?! There are some people who tend to be mean to others for whatever reason.

Toby Mac’s Speak Life Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”This song by Toby Mac is acting this Scripture out. We need to speak life into people. Negative words hurt. That little saying we all learned as kids, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will …

Sunday, my Pastor continued his message on Romans 12. This week was 10- 12. I would like to focus on 12, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” In the Greek language, joy means “rejoicing in contentment”.  Hope means “eager anticipation”. Happiness is cool. There isn’t anything wrong with it. Happiness is just based on your circumstances.  …
