Listen More, Speak Less, Stay Calm

Good Morning, Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. James 1:19-20 The last 60 days in our country have seen copious amounts of anger...

Spreading Wildfires

Good Morning, All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they shared with anyone who was in need. With one accord they continued to meet daily in the temple courts and to break bread from house to...

Free Crab Legs

Good Morning, Free Crab Tomorrow! Some of you undoubtedly recognize that slogan from Joe’s Crab Shack. It’s painted on the side of their restaurants. When my wife and I pass one we always remark that we need to go there tomorrow.  The trouble is,...

Authentic Leadership

Good Morning, As for those who were held in high esteem—whatever they were makes no difference to me; God does not show favoritism—they added nothing to my message. Gal. 2:6 There’s a pretty good chance that at some point in your life you have encountered someone...

Dirty Windshields

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24 You wash your car and take special care to get your windows clean and streak-free.  The next...
