  • Sticks and stones may hurt my bones, but words will never harm me.
    Have you ever heard that quoted? Well, don’t believe it.  
    Hurtful words can cut to the very core of a person. From tabloid newspapers, forums on the Internet, even at church we are almost universally drawn to listen to or pass on the latest juicy tidbit about so-and-so’s divorce, extramarital affairs or just to rip the heart out of someone.  

  • Everybody needs to love and be loved. Hopefully we realize that the greatest love of our life should be the Lord Jesus. When we consider what he has done for us and what he will do for us eternally, how can we not love him?
    Jesus was asked one day, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?” (Matthew 22:36-38). He said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Thinking of who he is and has done for us should lead us to give him our all and let him reign supremely in our lives.

  • Fistfights, hair pulling, trash talk and mayhem sum up the set of the Jerry Springer show.
    Chelsee Mitchell, a spunky 18-year-old from Mount Sherman, got a firsthand look at the show as a guest last month.
    Mitchell said she was in shock when she got the call to be on the famous Springer show, especially since she never applied to be on it in the first place.
