Don’t Look Back

Before God destroyed the city of Sodom, He sent two angels to rescue Lot and his family from it. Their instructions were clear: ‘Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed…But his wife looked back behind him, and she

Be Grateful

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has a brilliant mind. He has been compared by some to Albert Einstein. But he has a rare degenerative disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS syndrome or motor neurone disease). And it has left him virtually paralyzed. He ...

Seeing Your Work as God’s Will (1)

You’ll experience a new level of fulfilment when you begin to see what you do for a living as an important part of God’s will for your life. Jesus preached and healed, but He saw it all as ‘work’ given to Him by His Father. You must too. Instead of seeing church as a place ...

Don’t Boast

If you’ve been blessed with success, read these words from Paul and take them to heart: ‘Because God was so gracious, so very generous, here I am.’ Every good thing you have right now, plus every good thing you’ll enjoy in the future, comes from God. Try never to forget ...

Godly Parents, Godly Children

Speaking about Abraham, God said, ‘He will direct his children…to keep the way of the LORD.’ Can God say that about you? Are you serious about raising godly children (or nieces and nephews, if you still haven’t got any)? When you get serious about raising godly children, God
