  • Season preview: Lady Hawks soccer

    Give Becky Hawkins this – the LaRue County Lady Hawks’ coach is honest almost to a fault.

    The Lady Hawks went 6-7-4 last season, getting outscored 54-26 and going winless (0-6-2) against 9th District teams.

    “Last year our main goal was not to get mercy ruled. That’s how low of a skill level we had,” Hawkins said. “Now our goal is to play a good game and work hard as best we can. Hopefully that hard work will pay off.”

  • COLUMN: Live well in God, die well

    Moses, David, Paul and many other Bible characters were used by God to accomplish his will. God still uses individuals today when they place their lives in his hands.

    What are some of the characteristics of persons God uses today? From the Apostle Paul we learn God uses one who wants to know God in his fullness. Paul sought to forget what was behind him and press forward. Here was a man who showed by life and word that he was sold out to Jesus.

    When you walked into Paul's life you would say, "Paul lives to know God."

  • COLUMN: The day the sun stood still

    One day, the sun stood still (Joshua 10:10-14). There has been no day like that, before it or after it, the first time man commanded the solar system to stand still and it obeyed.

    At another time, God hearkened to Hezekiah and turned the solar system backward 10 degrees.

    God worked a powerful miracle in response to Joshua’s authority in prayer. In fact, Joshua spoke directly to the sun and moon, obviously at God’s command, and the delayed sunset allowed Israel to have revenge upon their enemies.

  • COLUMN: An honest day's work for an honest day's pay

    Many believe the Bible teaches it is wrong to be wealthy. They think "money is the root of all evil."

    But the Bible does not teach that. The Bible says, "the love of money is the root of all evil" (I Timothy 6:10).

    God is not opposed to wealth. When you read the Bible you are aware of many wealthy individuals. In today's way of figuring wealth Abraham would have been a millionaire. Then there is David, Solomon, Job and many other financially well-to-do Bible characters. It is the misuse of and the love of money that causes problems.
