πŸ‘‘ Creatures of Habit

Mahatma Gandhi wrote: “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.” Since the word “habit” is a synonym forΒ pattern,Β this quote reminds me of the evenΒ … ➑

πŸ‘‘ A Pattern of Sobriety

To teach his teenaged son about the dangers of alcohol, a father dropped a worm in a glass of water, and it just kind of wiggled around, the way worms do on your hook when you go fishing. But then he dropped another worm in whiskey, and it promptly … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Discretion Is the Better Part of Glamour

You’ve probably heard the old saying, “Discretion is the better part of valor.” This Shakespearean expression is said to mean thatΒ good judgmentΒ is better than rash bravery, andΒ prudenceΒ is preferable to careless courage.

πŸ‘‘ A Holding Pattern That Casts the Lord in a Good Light

Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Apostle Paul gave some advice to a young man named Titus that all Christians would do well to take to heart:

“In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works…” (Titus 2:7).

If you’re not sure what a “pattern” is, do you remember … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Hour of Power

After the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead, and just before He ascended into heaven, He made a promise to His apostles, saying,

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Is Suffering the Result of God Punishing Sin?

“And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Have You Heard?

β€œIf ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward” (Eph. 3:2).

Could it be that those to whom Paul addressed his Ephesian letter had not yet heard that God had committed to him β€œthe dispensation of grace”?

Next to the … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Revelation of Jesus Christ

The last great book of the Bible opens with the words: β€œThe revelation of Jesus Christ,” and from these words it derives its title: β€œThe Revelation.” In this book St. John deals largely with the return of Christ in glory to judge and reign.

πŸ‘‘ She’s A Keeper!

The Apostle Paul wrote that “young women” with “husbands” and “children” should be “keepers at home”Β (Titus 2:3,4). And as you may know, this phrase is the subject of much controversy among Christian wives and moms, most of whom desire to understand it clearly so that they can obey … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Striking Faith and Charity

In Paul’s epistle to Titus, he gives some instructions for “aged men” that contain good advice for believers of all ages, saying,

πŸ‘‘ How Aged Men Should Behave

Recently I came across a web site called, “Lies That Moms Tell Their Kids To Get Them To Behave.” One mom told her kids she had a new phone app that could tell her when they were misbehaving behind her back!

πŸ’‘πŸ’Œ Is This a Contradiction?

“Matthew says the chief priests took the money Judas cast down in the temple and bought the ‘field of blood.’ Peter, in Acts, says that Judas bought the field with the ‘reward of iniquity.’ On the surface, this appears to be a contradiction.”

First and foremost, the Word of … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Conduct Unbecoming a Christian

“…speak thou the things which become sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1).

The word “become” here meansΒ fittingΒ orΒ appropriate. Even if you never served in the military, you have probably heard that if an officer misbehaves he can be charged with “conduct unbecoming an officer.” That serious charge is … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Be Sure of What’s Pure!

“Unto the pure all things are pure…” (Titus 1:15).

Boy, a verse like that sure begs the questions, “Who are these pure people, and why are all things pure for them?”

Well, the word “pure” just means “clean,” as we see when Solomon asked,

“Who can say, I have

πŸ‘‘ No Beauty That We Should Desire Him

“Les Feldick taught that Isaiah 53:2 doesn’t mean the Lord Jesus was ugly, but that there was nothing in Him that would attract the Jews to Him as their King and Messiah. What do you say?”

I never thought about it that way, but Les is right! Isaiah wrote:… ➑

πŸ‘‘ You Can Make a Difference

One person can always make a difference. By one vote Texas was added to the union, Andrew Johnson was saved from impeachment, and Adolf Hitler gained power over the Nazi party. In the spiritual realm, one person has frequently made an enormous difference. Only Jehosheba hid young Joash from … ➑
