A House Built Upon a Rock

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And everyContinue reading “A House Built Upon a Rock”

Considering Proverbs 11:25

The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. What is a liberal soul? Based on the context, it seems to mean a soul that has a giving nature. Water might indicate blessing, so we could also say that a person who generously blesses others will be blessedContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:25”

A Look at Postmodernism and How to Fight It

What is postmodernism? If you’re like I was before today, you might not be able to answer that question outright. Or, maybe you can. I’m falling way behind here, I know. Whether you can or cannot, we all recognize the ideas contained within postmodernism because they heavily influence our culture today. I have experienced itContinue reading “A Look at Postmodernism and How to Fight It”

What is Distracting You from Jesus?

How do we develop “ears to hear?” Jesus says that if we seek, we will find. He speaks to us by the Holy Spirit, but we have to become practiced at this because it can be difficult to hear that “still small voice” and learn to discern His voice from our own. If we continueContinue reading “What is Distracting You from Jesus?”

Seek and You Will Find

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will heContinue reading “Seek and You Will Find”

Don’t Cast Your Pearls Before Swine

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. – Matthew 7:6 Jesus made this statement after those He made concerning judgment. It seems connected. If the judgements that we make are correct and ofContinue reading “Don’t Cast Your Pearls Before Swine”

Judge Not that Ye Be Not Judged (Part 3) – Reward Her Even as She Rewarded You

Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or howContinue reading “Judge Not that Ye Be Not Judged (Part 3) – Reward Her Even as She Rewarded You”

Lessons from Ananias and Saphira

Have you read the story in the Bible about the couple that was struck down dead for lying to the Holy Spirit? I want to write this post as a follow up to my previous post, All In. There is a story in the Bible of a husband and wife who claimed to be “allContinue reading “Lessons from Ananias and Saphira”

All In

I’ve spent my whole life chasing people that I’m never quite good enough for. This is going to be a cringe post but I don’t really care. I don’t think I should care anymore because all the time, care, and effort that goes into trying to be enough for people that are too good forContinue reading “All In”

God be merciful to me a sinner.

9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other menContinue reading “God be merciful to me a sinner.”
