  • The faith of Abraham Lincoln is best expressed in the phrase he coined, “one nation under God.” He was inspired by the Bible and by God’s direction in his life and the country’s life.

    God is mentioned in many of Lincoln’s speeches. In 1861 when Lincoln left Springfield for Washington, he said at the train depot, “Without the assistance of that Divine Being ... I cannot succeed. With that assistance, I cannot fail.”

  • A survey was conducted among some 4- to 8-year-olds as to their “views on love.” The following would represent some answers they gave: “Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving lotion and they go out and smell each other.”

    We all have our ideas about love, but the best ones come from God. Paul in Romans 12:9-10 tells us that love is a matter of doing something. He says, “don’t just pretend you love someone. Really love them and have genuine affection.”

  • The joy of the Lord and the joy that the world gives are very different. The world’s joy is artificial, is not real and is on the outside. Booze, drugs, clothes, cars, stocks and bonds are outward things. The fleeting joy they bring does not last.

    Jesus said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). He came that we might have this joy to the full. It is a joy that the world does not give, nor can it take the joy away. This is a joy where God is at the center of life and is in control.

  • “By one spirit we were all baptized into one body.” I Corinthians 12:13

    Mark Twain joked about putting a dog and cat together in a cage to see how they would get along.

    They did fine so he added a bird, a pig and a goat.

    They did fine until he added a Baptist and a Catholic – and soon there wasn’t a living thing left.

    Seriously, there’s nothing Satan enjoys more than causing division by pitting Christian against Christian, often over insignificant issues.

  • When Melissa Pearman, Hodgenville Family Resource Center coordinator, set the goal for the center’s third Red Cross blood drive, she thought 32 donors would be great.

    When workers totaled the pints of blood donated at Hodgenville Elementary School’s gymnasium Jan. 26, however, the amount collected, 54 pints, proved to be a happy surprise.
