You know what happens when chickens and ducks are in your backyard?
Yes, the church is full of hypocrites.
Maybe you have been looking for that perfect reason not to go to church. Or, you just need some space from those “other” Christians. You know who I’m talking about.
Have you ever read a story that did not have a happy ending?
I have. It is called The Mockingjay, the last book in The Hunger Games series.
I can talk fast. Really fast.
My rapid firing of words is not because I hate periods or commas. Its just that I get excited and forget to add pauses, breaks, spaces…
You know, breathe.
Jeremiah was facing a crisis: ministry was a lot harder than he realized.
It was not like Jeremiah knew nothing about ministry. His dad was a priest in his hometown of Anathoth. Yes, he was familiar with the highs and lows.
But this was different. And personal.
I was in the vehicle with my friend on my way to the gym.
For the first time.
It is not that I don’t enjoy working out. I just never went to a gym for selfish reasons. “What if someone sees me squat wrong?” “What if the bigger guys look at me weird?”
Yes, ridiculous reasons that sound like they come from a 6-year-old.
March 14, 1948.
It was on this day that Douglas Hyde, a top-ranking party leader, left the Communist Party in London.
I was 8 years old. A complete dork and book nerd with no athletic tendencies. That is when my parents let me know it was time for me to get outside and play sports with the other kids.
The sport? Soccer.
The best part? The uniform.
Caleb stood there frustrated as he listened to the report.
Moses had selected him, along with 11 other men, to be a spy. Their mission? 1) To scout out the land they were to invade for 40 days, and 2) Bring back a report of what they observed.
But the report was not going so well.
I think it is safe to say that Moses was one of the greatest leaders. Ever. This guy led one and a half million people through the wilderness for over 40 years. Yes, Moses made a lot of mistakes, but what he did took serious leadership skills.
That is why Numbers 12:3 is so shocking.
