  • God works in us before he can work through us

    Mark Twain once said, “Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.” The reason for that may be the inability to accomplish the same achievements in our lives.

    What a person does may inspire us, but it cannot enable us to do what that person does. Unless the person comes into our lives and shares his skills, we cannot accomplish their deeds. We must have the power inside us to achieve and not just the example on the outside.

  • God’s love is unconditional

    The classified ad in the newspaper read: “Lost: one dog, brown hair with several mange spots. Right leg broken due to auto accident. Rear left hip hurt. Right eye missing. Left ear bitten off in a dog fight. Answers to the name Lucky.”

    Lucky? Sure, the dog was lucky to have an owner who loved it very much. It did not matter about the blind eye and the bad leg. The owner loved it so much that he would seek after the dog and pay someone to find it.

  • Sweet Sweet Sorghum

    Last week, LaRue County High School sophomore Casey McMillen spent his fall break harvesting sorghum.

    His family’s rediscovery of the nearly-lost art of sorghum-making tied in with an FFA project for McMillen, who is working on his State FFA degree. To obtain his State FFA degree he must earn or invest $1,500 or work 1,000 hours. He must also be an FFA member for three consecutive years and complete state, national and regional requirements.

    After experimenting with a few other activities, McMillen decided sorghum fit the bill.
