Collard Greens and Jesus

As most parents do, mine encouraged me to try new foods. “You won’t know if you like it if you never try it!” Some things you just know you’re not going to like. Some things you dislike, but you grow into them. I never grew into liver. I remember one evening while in Junior High... Continue Reading →

Tomorrow

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭ESV‬‬) The word tomorrow has stirred up more excitement than a free trip to Disney Land and struck more fear in the hearts of mankind than a Freddy Krueger movie marathon. Tomorrow... Continue Reading →

Folly

“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18 (ESV) Folly. Foolishness.

So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared... Continue Reading →

“He said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead’” ‭‭(Luke‬ ‭16:31‬ ‭ESV‬‬). The rich man, in torment from the flames of hell, cried out to Abraham asking that the poor man, Lazarus, be sent back to his father’s house... Continue Reading →

A Remnant

"If the Lord of hosts had not left us a few survivors, we should have been like Sodom, and become like Gomorrah" (Isaiah 1:9 ESV). Sodom and Gomorrah were wicked towns, chock-full of wicked people. It was so bad in these places that God sent down fire to consume them and everyone in them. He... Continue Reading →

Walk In Love

"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God" (Ephesians 5:1-2 ESV).
