God Is With Me to Celebrate Psalm 23:5 Leslie B. Flynn points out that the main part of hospitality is hospital. He writes, “Ancient travelers, whether pilgrims or businessmen, fared poorly when venturing beyond their own country. Thus, religious leaders established international guest houses in the fifth century. These havens were called “hospice” from hospes, Latin for “guests.” With the coming of the Crusades, the importance of the hospice increased greatly. Pilgrims, crusaders, and other travelers found hospices, by this… Read more

God Is With Me in the Valleys of Life Psalm 23:4 The Government is my shepherd, Therefore, I need not work. It allows me to lie down on a good job; It leads me beside still factories. It destroys my initiative; It leads me in the path of a parasite for politics’ sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of laziness and deficit spending, I fear no evil; for the Government is with me. It preparest an economic utopia… Read more

Embracing the Dignity of Work 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15 Have you ever known someone so caught up in his or her work that family, health, and everything meaningful was neglected? How about the opposite extreme? Have you known or seen someone who was downright lazy, who had no ambition, no drive to achieve, produce, or provide? Unfortunately, society is full of both extremes. On one hand, you have workaholics. On the other hand, you have bums avoiding work. Both of these… Read more

The Interfaith Family Journal by Susan Katz Miller The Interfaith Family Journal is not specifically designed for someone of just one faith. In truth, it is a journal designed for postmodern families who want to explore other faiths outside of Christianity. As Miller notes: “While many previous books on interfaith families have assumed an audience of Christian and Jewish heterosexual couples, this journal consciously strives to decenter white Christian heteronormativity, and to work for people and families representing any number… Read more

Give Thanks in Whatever I Do Colossians 3:15-17 Back during the dark days of 1929, a group of ministers in the Northeast gathered to discuss how they should conduct their Thanksgiving Sunday services. Things were about as bad as they could get, with no sign of relief. The bread lines were long, the stock market had crashed, and the Great Depression described both the economy and the attitude of the day. Some thought that they should only lightly touch upon… Read more

The Christian Responsibility to Warn Others Ezekiel 3:16-21 Dr. Wayne Burke said,” we are to go and glow, so the lost and the church grow; go glow and grow.” Pastor Terrell Hudson said of evangelism and witnessing,”We are to have convictions, endurance, compassion, and submission to God.

Developing Christian Peace Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. The law is not against such things.” (Galatians 5:22–23, CSB) Two painters were in a contest where each said they could paint a picture of peace. One painter painted this sunset with the sun going down over the calm water. It all looked very nice and the picture had a very calming effect. The other painter painted a… Read more

How to Development Contentment in My Life Philippians 4:10-23 A thermometer doesn’t change anything around it—it just registers the temperature. It’s always going up and down. But a thermostat regulates the surroundings and changes them when they need to be changed. Many people live like a thermometer, living their lives and letting their circumstances let them go up and down. Being content in life is like being a thermostat. The Apostle Paul was a thermostat. Instead of having spiritual ups… Read more
