  • Worry and stress. Aren't we all acquainted with those emotions? That is the bad news, but the good news is that we can handle them.

    It may surprise you to know that the Bible, which is filled with the creation of the universe, Heaven and Hell, the death and resurrection of Jesus, also speaks of a human emotion - worry.

    Jesus said in Matthew 6:31, "Do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'"

  • I have three friends who are going through a difficult time. One is in the hospital with double pneumonia, one just had knee replacement surgery, and another, as well as her friend, are going to have kidney transplant surgery.

    The Bible speaks of a friendship between David and Jonathan. Their friendship is one of the deepest and closest recorded in the Bible (I Samuel 18:1-4). We each are committed to God, not just each other. True friends will draw closer together when problems come.
