A Cave Made for a King (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 357)

a-cave-made-for-a-king

Isaiah 9:6 (NLT)
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Over the years, I have seen some very beautiful Nativity scenes in front of houses, churches, and other public places. When I was a kid, it evoked a sense of wonder and to a degree, it still does. But there are, of course, some inaccuracies as a result of people’s imagination. For one, Jesus did not have blond hair or blue eyes as many ethnic-European photos describe him. Most accurate historians and scholars agree that Jesus was ethnically Middle Eastern. Read more…

Just Ask (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 353)

just-ask

Matthew 7:11 (NLT)
So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

God is the source of every good and perfect gift in the world. All the things you see and even the things you can’t see are a result of God’s goodness and grace in the universe. God said in Genesis that what he created was good. He gave it to us as a gift of his divine providence. If we as mere humans love to give gifts to the people we love, God loves to give gifts a million times more than that. Read more…

The Best People Are Humble People (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 347)

“Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.”
— Thomas Merton

When we think of greatness or what it means to be a successful person, the first things that come to mind are characteristics such as vision, motivation, drive, and self-discipline among others. One very important characteristic that is often lacking is humility. We don’t see humility on too many lists of what it means to be great or even what it means to just be a good person. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a leader or not. Read more…

Clothed in Something Beautiful (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 320)

Colossians 3:12 (NLT)
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

There are many opportunities throughout our lives in which we can develop patience and allow mercy, kindness, humility, and gentleness to be reflected in our attitudes and actions. One of those opportunities is no more evident than during the holiday season. For many people, it all seems like a blur with the shopping and traveling, gift-giving and cooking. Read more…

Conscience Awareness (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 312)

conscience-awareness

Isaiah 30:21 (NLT)
Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, “This is the way you should go,” whether to the right or to the left.

God doesn’t always give us what we want as soon as we want it. He does, however, give us what we need when we need it most, whether we think we need it or not. All of us have a conscience and on that conscience is written the laws of God and the difference between what is good and what is bad. God gives us a conscience so that we can get a feel for when we are doing good and when we are going in the opposite direction. Read more…

How Deep Do You Live? (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 268)

how-deep-do-you-live

Matthew 20:28 (NLT)
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Serving and giving to others is the heartbeat of the Christian life. As believers, it is not just our duty to serve, it is a great privilege and the highest honor. Too many of us think that service is for other people. But nothing could be further from the truth. Service is not for other people, it is for us to do in every single aspect of our lives. It isn’t something to be tacked on at the end of a long day; it is what we do in every day. Read more…
