February Verses ~ Love

Is the love of Christ to compel me?  Or is the love of Christ to constrain me? Perhaps surprisingly (or perhaps not) – the answer is both.   His love for me is to both compel and constrain! I first came across this idea as a young Christian, when reading 2 Corinthians 5:14, which in part states in some translations, “For the love of Christ compels us…” and in others “For the love...

January Verses ~ Pursue & Seek

{See below for printables} Before moving too far into 2022, let’s take a quick trip back to the 1300’s. Here we find one of the earliest definitions of “resolution,” taken from a Latin word meaning “a process of reducing things into simpler forms.” Over the centuries, the word’s usage and meaning changed and evolved.  But if we consider that early definition, we may very well get to the...

Cultivating Gratitude

I was only a college student, but the words said in passing have stuck with me all these (many) years later: “Gratitude must be cultivated.”  You see, I was at the home of one of the leaders of my campus ministry, joining the family for a home-cooked dinner (every college student’s dream!).  I left with much more than a satisfied stomach, however.  I left with an invaluable lesson...

A Wide Enough World

“What I find so interesting about David and Jonathon’s friendship is that Jonathon didn’t hold it against David that David would be the next king…Jonathon valued their friendship more than what he could have gained for himself….” (See 1 Samuel 18.)

Ask

What should I do NEXT? How many times have we asked that? If you’re like me, it’s been too many times to count! I think that’s why I especially love what one commentator had to say regarding wisdom: “Wisdom is a practical, ‘what I do next’ kind of thing.  It’s common when we’re under pressure to feel deep frustration and be uncertain of what to do.  When we are in that situation, James says,...
