Is Too Much Grace Even Possible? (Part 4 of 4)

How Much Is Too Much Grace? I used to be a little nervous around Grace. It is so other-worldly and Jesus-dependent that it’s sometimes hard to know what to do with it. We know Grace is a good thing, but it is easy to feel the need to be careful lest it takes over and corrupts our efforts and programs. We are…

When Gratitude is Not Enough

Over the past few years, there has been a revival in Christendom of the need for gratitude. I, personally, have been deeply touched and challenged by authors that inspire us to look around, be present, and give thanks. And I am ever so grateful (no pun intended!) for their message. I am confident that this movement began right in the…

The One Thing that Really Matters

I often feel like correcting people. Some people eat dessert before dinner. They relax when they should be working. They look busy when it’s time to take a break.

Giving Honor Where Honor is Un-due

Honor: it’s a topic that I’ve been pondering as of late.  Maybe it’s because I spent the last 10 years of my life in Asia, where honor is a value that is worked out daily in human interactions.  Or maybe it’s because the presidential elections are nearing (though they are still months away!)  Or maybe it’s because I’ve had to spend much…

True Disciples are Tired of Introspection (Part 2 of 4)

I am an extremely visual person. If I don’t see it, it typically doesn’t exist to me. That’s why clutter in the eyes of my wife may in fact make perfect sense in my mind. Taping words to our mirror doesn’t look nice, but could prove to be instrumental to our happiness. When my wife has me look at some lady’s…

A Simple Cure for Worry

I’m reading this amazing little book written at the turn of the century.  David Wilkerson discovered it and re-published it. The title is God’s Cure for Worry. One line really caught my attention today. I think it was a Holy Spirit moment: “Do not worry about worrying.” I cannot make myself worry less by trying to worry less. I cannot…
