Red-Faced or Repentant?…Mar. 29th

Cookie-Jar

It’s a reassuring thing when you hear someone apologize for doing wrong. We call that ‘repentance.’ But not everyone is sorry for sinning, some are just sorry for getting caught sinning.

write a check

In a world where we’re told right is wrong and wrong is right, how is one to know what to do? Maybe it doesn’t matter. We just do what we want, when we want, how we want. “To each his own.” Of course, when it comes time for an answer, and a decision is required, is …

The following account is one man’s record of how we came to know and love “Silent Night.”  The accompanying video (YouTube) is sung acapella by St. Thomas Boy’s Choir.  They’re singing this song in its original language, German.  The story is told…   In 1818, a roving band of actors was performing in towns throughout the Austrian Alps. …

A Servant is Not Above His Master…Dec. 15th

honor

Every respectful employee understands the expectations of working for his employer.  My boss tells me what do to, and I do it (as the scripture says without grumbling or complaining, Phil. 2:14).  Yet in a culture that questions authority, this concept is becoming a rare commodity.  How do we revive the principle of respect and …
