  • It's time to move on up to maturity

    “After over a quarter of century, I am convinced that spiritual immaturity is the number one problem in our churches.”

    This statement was made by Warren Wiersbe, who is an internationally known Bible teacher, former pastor of Moody Church in Chicago and author of 150 books. Dr. Wiersbe should know what he is talking about when he says spiritual immaturity is our number one problem in the church today.

    Sometimes life here on earth can be complicated, demanding and busy.

    With all the rain this past weekend our basement was flooded, and I’m certain others had to deal with the same situation. 

    More than likely all suffered some sort of loss, but you know I believe there was a lesson for us to learn. The business of life keeps us running from place to place with scarcely a moment to spare.

    Therefore, we may fail to pause and say a word of thanks for all the good things we have received.

  • Parents, listen to your children

    Adolescence is the in-between stage of rapid physical, mental and spiritual growth and a time during which young people begin making more of their own choices.

    As parents see their children growing up, the understanding and forgiveness is usually free-flowing as is the affection. They give their children love, but are firm, expecting and demanding appropriate respect.
