Moving Away from Cancel Culture toward Connection – Reblog from In My Father’s House

Last time I talked about how we do have some commonality with people who may have a different worldview than ours. Today I want to look at how we can navigate a potentially combative conversation to come to some sort of agreement, maybe even win the other person over to our point of view. AsContinue reading “Moving Away from Cancel Culture toward Connection – Reblog from In My Father’s House”

Blessed are the Poor

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. – Matthew 5:3 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. – Luke 6:20 This is the first statement that Jesus made, to which He referenced as aContinue reading “Blessed are the Poor”

Choosing Which Burdens to Carry

Life is full of difficult scenarios, and sometimes knowing what to do can be trying because there are multiple perspectives to take on the issue. One perspective might mean doing one thing. Another perspective might mean doing the opposite. Both could be true and good, depending on the timing. For example, I do believe thatContinue reading “Choosing Which Burdens to Carry”

One Thing We Can Do

We each have our own life to sort out, and hopefully we do so through a veil of healthy fear of the Lord. We each need to hear what the Lord is speaking to us in this time. I don’t know what the right thing to do is for us collectively as Christians. I doContinue reading “One Thing We Can Do”

How Can We Just Keep Living A Normal Life?

Things just don’t feel right. Do they? It feels strange to me to just keep going with life as normal.

It feels strange to keep working as a contentContinue reading “How Can We Just Keep Living A Normal Life?”

15 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty. This is a good proverb about the vanity and foolishness of man.

Considering Proverbs 10:13-14

13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. 14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction. When I read these verses, I’m thankful that we serve a patient God. How often haveContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:13-14”

The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged

How long has it been since our Lord, Jesus, ascended into heaven? How many men since that time have made judgements concerning the teachings of Jesus and the way a Christian aught to live out their faith? Many men—in Christ there is no male or female, so for simplicity’s sake, I say men—have made judgements.Continue reading “The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged”
