Jesus replied, “You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote, ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God. For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition.” Then he said, “You skillfully […]

It’s easy with the normal hustle and bustle of our day-to-day lives to simply look at Memorial Day as a day to have some friends over, fire up the grill, relax and just enjoy a day NOT at work. Even when we consider what the holiday commemorates we often mistake it for another Veterans Day. […]

As I was thinking about mother’s day and the most important women in my life, I opened the bible and read the scripture I believe really paints the picture of what a Godly women looks like – Proverbs 31. As I read, I got to verse 10 and stopped… “Who can find a virtuous and […]
