Love is present. In a world where social media is at my fingertips, self love is prevalent, and life is racing along, love is being present. Love is taking time to hear my daughter when she is animatedly describing new stories to her stuffed animals and dolls. Love is holding my son in the middle […]

Love Lifted Me

Did you know that the biblical definition of charity is love? I did not! In the Encyclopedia Britannica it notes “…the Reformers identified the uniqueness of God’s agāpe for man as unmerited love; therefore, they required that charity, as man’s love, be based not upon the desirability of its object but upon the transformation of […]

Acts 20:35 “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” We live in a world now that it is all about “Me.” It […]

  While doing research for this post on charity, I came across Dictionary.com that has seven definitions for “charity“. The first six were familiar to me, ranging from “generous actions or donations to aid the poor, ill, or helpless” to “leniency in judging others, forbearance“. As for the seventh definition, I had never thought of […]

We’ve all heard the verse from Ephesians, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right” (6:1). As a mother, I have taught this verse to my children. I have tried to get them to understand it. There isn’t a Sunday School in the world that hasn’t taught this verse to little ones. It […]

Reaching Out

  I have often thought of myself as a (physically) strong person. I have always been relatively active and I excel in areas of endurance. I have competitively run five half-marathons.

Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: “Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who […]
