But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Following my daily Bible reading plan, I began reading the Proverbs a number of days ago and what has always been interesting to me is how much many of the proverbs are based simply in common sense. It’s almost childlike in its approach to life at times, leaving one to wonder did the people...

Speaking the Truth in Love

Reading through the Psalms as I’m doing now as I follow a daily Bible reading program, I’m reminded how much difficulty David faced in his adult life! It is astounding that during his life, so many were against him. Israel’s first king, King Saul, spent a good portion of the...

Level of Hate and Animosity is Astounding

Written by

I hate to discuss “bad” news, but the reality is that it is foisted upon us on a large-scale every day. Many of the so-called news networks traffic in lies, slander, and innuendo and it makes sense when realizing who owns those news channels. FOX News is trying to hold onto its...
