How do you respond when you are asked to do something? Do you say no, and then change your mind? Or, do you say yes, then not do it? Today in our parable, “There was a man who had two sons.” (Matthew 21: 28) The father asked the first son to work in the vineyard. […]

Day 264 of Bible Reading Plan – “I ain’t nobody’s fool”. No one wants to be a fool, yet we live in a culture full of folly. And we can be naive or fooled if we are not careful. But there is a way out. As we ask God for wisdom, He promises to answer.
Learning to trust God completely seems to be like a lifelong process, but the sooner we learn, the less we will suffer.

Day 263 of Bible Reading Plan – When people come against us, it is not us they truly hate nor is it really them who are attacking us.

When we don’t take attacks against us as being about us, we are set free from the drama and let God fight our battles for us. When people attack you, love your enemies anyway.

Day 260 of Bible Reading Plan – Have you ever spoken a promise to God when you were in a tough spot? In that moment you were likely desperate and committed to following through. The problem is, we cannot perfectly keep up our end of the relationship with God. What then? God helps us to keep our word when we fall short. Living up to promises is not possible apart from God’s grace. And God never fails or breaks His promises. He will complete the work He began in us.
