  • Compassion is hard. So many times, we attempt to justify our merciless actions of indifference by looking at the life of another individual through a fleshly lens of value. As a result, we ignore true needs of those around us and justify our self-righteous activities. This approach to life comes naturally because it is motivated and led by the self-centered nature of the flesh.

  • Last week I referred to the experience of the children of Israel as they were about to enter the Promised Land.  In Joshua 24:14-18 they are given a choice --- whether to serve God or not.  We spoke of the temptations that they had to face then and that we have to face today.

    They would have testings in the new land.  It would not be easy for them in the new land.  Would they hold on to God when trouble came?  They like their forefathers had to decide if they would stay close to God when the battles came.

  • The Captain Jacob Van Meter Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, met on December 8, 2017, at the Brown Pusey House in Elizabethtown.

  • As I write this column, the lottery is hitting some amazing levels. I’ve heard several people who are excited about this. What is a Christian to think about gambling and the lottery? What does God say? Let’s put aside our opinions, traditions, and practices and consider God’s truth.

    Avoid Arrogance. I hear a lot of arrogance on this issue. I’ve heard preachers condemning gamblers with a self-righteous tone. I’ve heard gamblers condemning Christians who share their opinion on the matter. We need to humble ourselves on this issue.

  • Did you make any resolutions for 2018?  Some people laugh at them and say why make them because we will only break them.  But that could be a mistake.  Resolutions may remind us that there are areas in our lives that need improving.  They may help us to make needed changes.
