Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] Dennis Prager has famously said that the world consists of only two races:  the decent and the indecent. But my dad has his own delineation between people – there are Givers and there are Takers. This doesn’t mean that if you simply accept a gift from someone, you’re a taker.  What it does mean is that if you have been blessed, you should bless someone else when you have an opportunity. Sadly, “takers” tend to develop and live a lifestyle where they forget how to give to oth … [Read more...]

ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

[display_podcast] We have an enemy. He is not happy when we are involved in changing lives for the Kingdom of God.   He is hoping we will forget and succumb to him, but we know that “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.”   Satan roams around like a lion “seeking whom he may devour”... notice it says “seeking”… not all of us have our heads in the sand. We have to be on our guard and walking in the presence of Jesus and not allow ourselves to be distracted by the noise of the … [Read more...]

Christian Home and Family Square

From Carey Green, author, blogger, speaker, coach and pastor:Most kids who go off the deep end, into a season or rebellion, do so for one reason. They see the rules and restrictions that authorities place on them as personal attacks rather than loving means of protection… and THAT is the problem of the authorities in their lives, not the kids.Another way I often say it is this: Rules without relationship, creates rebellion.Rules are not a bad thing. Because human beings are fallen cr … [Read more...]
