Talk is cheap

How do you show your love for somebody? That’s a fair question. Now I’m not just talking about your boyfriend or girlfriend per se. In fact, let me rephrase the question. How do you show your love to anybody? As I ponder the question, there are several things that come to mind. It’s not just…

Sign language

Nothing too profound today, but I write this blog today at an outdoor coffee shop. Lots of people deep in conversations. But one girl at a table got my attention. She was making a ZOOM call on her computer. The interesting thing was she was deaf and she was not talking but using sign language.…

Unreturned love

I blog a lot about love. Love “makes the world go around,” right? Theologically, many believe that it is the primary attribute of God. Love is the “sriracha” sauce of healthy relationships. Hopefully, the love you demonstrate is reciprocal. But what if your love isn’t returned? When a parent ignores their own children. When a…

Good question

Great quote from Malcolm Forbes, “One who never asks either knows everything or nothing.”  It’s interesting to me that Jesus was asked a bunch of questions from a variety of people.  “By what authority are you doing these things?” “What shall I do to inherit eternal life?” Who is my neighbor?”  But when asked in Matthew…

Hurt by somebody

I’m upset. Things aren’t turning out the way I had hoped for. It’s thrown off my equilibrium. I was put on indefinite hold. As I’m writing this blog, I’m on the phone trying to reason with a computer. Can you relate? Of course, you can. This is the standard operating procedure in our world of…

Naive faith

I heard an amazing testimony of faith the other day. This extraordinary leader came to believe in Jesus when he was at his absolute lowest point in life. Addicted and broken, he entered into a real relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Things changed…some quickly…some not so much. He grew in his faith…

Servant leadership

There is a paradox found in the Bible regarding leadership. To be a good leader, you need to be a servant. That’s certainly counter-intuitive especially in the workplace culture of today. But look at what Mark records: And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers…

Changed life

Love those who can’t love you back. I think that statement encapsulates the very heart of a changed life. There are many definitions and examples of how Jesus changes our life. A tax collector named Zacchaeus paid people back 4 times what he stole from them. God changed Rahab’s identity from a prostitute to a…

Loving well

TIME magazine, February 23, 2015, makes an intriguing statement “research shows married couples enjoy greater longevity than singles.” That report makes “’til death do us part” even more of a commitment. Married couples have been found to have lower rates of substance abuse, lower blood pressure, and less depression than singles. Even though the study is a few…
