The Joy of Forgiveness

November 16, 2015
I heard Corrie ten Boom talk once of meeting a sadistically cruel guard from the death camp Ravensbrück, where she'd been a prisoner. As you read her account of this meeting, marvel at the Messiah's grace, and His empowerment to His people to extend that grace to others.

There’s a growing trend I’ve noticed and have become concerned about: namely, that people who are anti-judgmental are SO judgmental of anyone else they perceive to be passing judgment. One, they’re often wrong; two, they’re just as harsh as those they condemn and continuously assume the worst.

Most of us see no further than the horizons of this world. To correct our shortsightedness, God prescribes a vision correction that allows us to look through the lens of eternity. 

The Modern Man’s Cycles of Laziness

July 6, 2015
