  • Gambling: Good or bad?

    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.

  • We get to choose

    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.
