What Does the Bible Say About Judging?

I recently read an article about the topic of judgment. It seems as though many people misunderstand what the Bible teaches on this topic. Matthew 7:1 explicitly denounces judgment, as do many other verses throughout the Bible. Suffice to say that these two verses, as examples, give us plenty of reason to constitute judgment-free parameters […]

Gossip: More Serious Than We Thought

We have all done it. Gossip. It’s something that even the secular world understands as something we should not do. There seems to be a common understanding that gossip is wrong. Nevertheless, we have all partaken in gossip and you can count on the fact that everyone has been the one talking at one time […]

When Suffering Became a Gift

Ah, here we are in 2015 and I can happily announce that I am delighted to enter a new year. Although I grew significantly in my spiritual life and relationship with God, I am relieved to have this “fresh start.” For some reason, when the clock strikes 12am on New Year’s Day, we immediately feel […]

“I’m the Lord’s Servant”

Your Word I Have Hidden In My Heart

Rising before the sun, I say a silent prayer of thanks for another day. I kiss my husband goodbye and make a cup of coffee. Trying not to wake the children I sneak into the living room. I see my laptop sitting on the table. Oh, how it beckons me to open it but for […]

Do You Have Time For God?

We are moms! We have calendars that fill up quickly. There are soccer games and dance recitals. You barely stay awake past dinner. Your life is busy and hectic. The last thing you have time for, is sitting down and reading The Word. Over the past few years, I have learned that the last thing […]

Wisdom is Love’s Twin

Such a lofty thing—wisdom. We all want it, but it requires so much of us. Wisdom does not associate itself with emotions. It is able to operate outside of “the heat of the moment.” It seems to come from a core connection with the supernatural. In looking at the passage in Corinthians 13—you know, the […]
