THE CROWD IS NOT YOUR ALLY

338/365 Luke 5:19 Because of the crowd, however, they could find no way to take him in. So they carried him up on the roof, made an opening in the tiles, and let him down on his bed into the middle of the group in front of Jesus A rather brusk information to start with... Continue Reading →

TRANSITIONING

330/365 Isaiah 2:4 He shall judge between the nations, And rebuke many people; They shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war anymore. Can you understand or appreciate what it takes to transition completely? Not like moving from... Continue Reading →

LOVE HAS NO EXPECTATIONS

303/365 Luke 14:12-13 When you give a dinner or a banquet, don't invite your friends and family and relatives and rich neighbors. If you do, they will invite you in return, and you will be paid back.

ROOM FOR GOD

289/365 Luke 12:19-20 Then I'll say to myself, ‘You have stored up enough good things to last for years to come. Live it up! Eat, drink, and enjoy yourself.’ ” But God said to him, “You fool!

When you decide not to eat... Continue Reading →
