WHAT DO YOU WANT?

DAY 34 Mark 6:24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist. What do you want?Perhaps, that seems a bit too vague so let me rephrase it:'What do you want out of life?' This is one of the simplest questions we... Continue Reading →

DISCIPLINE BEARS FRUITS

DAY 32 Hebrews 12:11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Who enjoys spending only a small fraction of their hard earned money just to save the rest? Who enjoys spending hours at work... Continue Reading →

TAKEN FOR GRANTED

DAY 29 Today, I just wanted to draw our attention to something we often take for granted. We can very easily become focused on two dimensions of our beings: spirit and soul that we neglect the body, which is the host of those two. For a myriad of reasons, the exterior which is visible, is... Continue Reading →

There were many scribes and Pharisees in the days of Scripture, but very few had their actual names recorded - Nicodemus, who came to Jesus by night and Paul's instructor,... Continue Reading →

THE JESUS FAN CLUB

DAY 4 John 1:38 When Jesus turned and saw them, he asked, “What do you want? ”They answered, “Rabbi, where do you live?” The Hebrew word “Rabbi” means “Teacher.” Jesus is rather blunt when he encounters the disciples in today's Gospel for the first time. In no two ways, He asks them 'what do you... Continue Reading →

RESPECTING RANKS

DAY 3 In certain spheres of life, rank is a big deal. The military is the clearest example of such a field of endeavour where insubordination is frowned upon such that often, even regardless of the circumstances, you are to obey the ranks. John's description of Jesus in today's Gospel is rather telling: This is... Continue Reading →
