Our Greatest Responsibility & Hardest Discipline

"Can any of you sit here today and say that your prayer life is perfect? That you pray as much as you should, pray for everyone that you need to, and feel confident that the Lord has answered every single one of your prayers?"

I recently bought a new Honda Civic and her name is Leia (I know you were dying to know that I am a new Star Wars fan).  Leia is awesome; in fact, Leia is unbelievably awesome compared to the car I had previously. 

This car was named Ava.  She was a 1997 black Toyota Avalon with ...

Not Just a Hobby!

Bible-memorize-Max-Lucado

While most 18-year-olds are posting selfies and bingeing on Netflix, Hannah Leary is memorizing books of the Bible.  Not just verses, not just chapters, and not just a book or twothis National Bible Bee (NBB) competitor has committed 10 entire books of the Bible to memory!

In a recent World Magazine article, Hannah says of her six-year NBB involvement, "At first, yes, I was just reading theological words.  But then it started coming alive."

The other 359 students who make it to finals would probably say the same.  Even if they don't take home a prize, these young ...

The North Star

I recently downloaded the SkyView app to my iPhone -- my daughter and I use it a couple of times a week to help us scan the night sky for stars and constellations.  It's a great app for someone like me who always has a hard time keeping track of the shifting of the constellations.

There is one point in the night sky though I can always find without the help of SkyView -- the North Star.  It's easy to find because it's known to stay fixed in our sky.

In an upcoming "Joni and Friends®" broadcast, Joni Eareckson ...

Expect Jesus to be Evident

Showing compassion is something as believers we'd like to think we're known for . . . extending a hand to those in need, praying for a friend or loved one in a difficult season in life.  But, what about compassion for someone who has wronged us . . . who has hurt us deeply - compassion seems elusive in those instances.

This was among our talking points in Sunday School this weekend as we studied II Corinthians 6: 1-10 which states that our "work as God's servants gets validated  - or not - in the details."  The passage goes on to say that people are watching ...

Loving Your Enemies

I was shocked. 

Apple's much awaited product debut.  And Microsoft is invited to the stage as a premier presenting partner?!  Did you see it? 

Just a few days ago, Apple-ites waited breathlessly for 2½ hours while one new product after another was announced.  When Apple's Phil Schiller welcomed Microsoft VP Kirk Koenigsbauer to the stage, there was an uncomfortable wave of laughter and then applause moving through the audience.  Here were (seemingly) sworn enemies actually working together on the hallowed Apple stage.  Steve Jobs must have been rolling over in his grave.

Actually, it makes sense for both ...
