Ten years ago I was camped out at a motel somewhere in Iowa on my way to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I remember this because ten years ago the St. Louis Rams won the NFC title and a week later won their only Super Bowl. This memory is... read more

In the course of my many years of serving the Lord I have run across many types of prayers offered by God's people. There are the prerecorded prayers taken from manuals that are recited without thought or impact. There are the standard prayers... read more

It seems like about a month since the sun has made an appearance here in midMissouri. Day after day and night after night there are dense fog advisories, and I HATE fog. I would prefer flash floods, severe thunderstorms and even snow to fog. I draw... read more

I believe that perhaps the most difficult thing to do in this life is to fully and totally trust God. When thinking about all the things we totally trust, it really is significant that we have so many questions, doubts and misgivings about God's... read more

Just as there are sins of omission and sins of commission, I believe there are miracles which undo bad things and miracles that prevent bad things from happening. Allow me to explain. I just received a message from a dear friend who felt strongly that... read more

Part of being a good Pharisee is looking like you really care about people, the truth and traditions but in reality not giving a hoot about those things. This is why Jesus constantly confronted the Pharisees and Scribes during His ministry. Since... read more

The situation in Haiti is nothing short of a utter disgrace. If I had a passport, I would close out my puny IRA and hand deliver food and water to those who have had none for nearly 5 days. The following stories are perhaps the most horrific I have... read more

As I pause to pay tribute to this date in my personal history, I am reminded of many things that have taken place on January 16th, and many more that have not. Other than my being born on this date in 1953, I suppose the most profound thing to ever... read more

Numbers do mean something in the Bible. God does not flip around various numbers with no consideration as to their significance. Of all the numbers in the Bible, there is one that is absolutely most important and that is the number SEVEN. The number... read more

There is, I am sorry to say, an impending sense that many things could and will go terribly wrong in this world shortly. If the earthquake in Haiti does nothing else, it should serve as a wakeup call to everyone regarding the total inability we have... read more

I know many people who have gone to Haiti over the past few years attempting to help the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Many clinics have been built to handle medical and dental needs and many professionals make missionary trips to Haiti... read more

There is much in this life we understand but there is even more in this life that makes little sense to us. The way people think and act is many times a complete mystery. I am not merely talking about the insane behavior manifested by criminals and... read more

I am truly hard pressed to find much difference between how most Christians and worldly people think, act and behave. By and large I see more similarities than I see differences in how people view life, work and raising their families. The unfortunate... read more

If I could only have one Psalm to read, memorize and know in my heart of hearts, perhaps it would be Psalm 63. " O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty... read more

Jesus Christ was capable of doing nothing but that which defines love. Everything He did, said and manifested was wrapped in love and therefore provides for us the basis for understanding what love is. To look toward the world to find the... read more

Some things in this life are easy to explain and put into words. Simple facts such as the color of grass or the score from the local baseball game don't demand much thought to explain. But, when it comes to expressing the intangibles in life, it... read more

We have a very difficult situation developing that merits our full attention. Unlike previous times when this has happened, this time is really serious. It seems that someone in the far north has not only opened the deep freeze door, but seems to be... read more

I wish I knew why one person suffers and the next one doesn't. I wish I knew why some people never seem to get sick and others are sick all the time. I wish I knew why one person prays and is healed on the spot and the next one prays and dies. I... read more

If there is one thing New Years is good for, it is reflection. As one year (or in tonight's case¬ decade) closes, it affords a wonderful time to consider what has taken place and what might lie ahead. As I ponder the changes which have... read more

Whether we like to admit it or not; we all get tired at times. We get tired of trying to help when the desire to be helped is not there. We get tired of trying to bless when the willingness to be blessed is missing. We get tired of giving when there... read more

Christmas means so many different things to people it is difficult, if not impossible to say with any degree of certainty what Christmas really is. Most of us know that it is not really Jesus' birthday, although Christians everywhere set aside... read more
