We Win!

Pastor Max LucadoI'm a competitive person. Naturally, therefore, I like to win! That's why I chose the winning team in life. Yes. Life!  I don't need to worry about the future - no matter what happens I will be OK because I have victory in Christ.

Sometimes, however, I don't live as if I am a winner. I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders and I forget that the most important thing in life has already been taken care of.

This is why I'm so thankful that Pastor Max Lucado encourages me to set my ...

Three minutes. 

That's how long a group of runners managed to stay ahead of the bulls at the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona this morning.

The first day of the annual running of the bulls was a swift race through old town for hundreds of runners trying to stay a step ahead of the raging bulls.

Some days it seems that's about how little I'm ahead of my own "raging bulls" - the daily to-do list, the emails, the phone calls. 

As I listened to the news this morning about the runners-mainly men dressed in the ...

Achieving Marital Oneness

"Maintaining harmony in marriage has been difficult since Adam and Eve. Two people trying to go their own selfish, separate ways can never hope to experience the oneness of marriage as God intended.

Commitment to Marriage on the Rise

With all that's been reported in the news recently regarding marriage, a new chart from Heritage's FamilyFacts.org bears some good news.

Recent marriages are lasting longer.  Commitment to marriage steadily declined from 1960 to the early 1980s, but as the chart highlights, this pattern is starting to reverse.

Nearly 75 percent of the women who married for the first time in the early 1990s reached their 10th wedding anniversaries.  This is a three-percentage-point increase compared to women who married in the early 1980s.

Despite what the media would have you believe, these numbers are promising for ...
