Day four...

Are you sensing an aggression rising up on the inside? If you are just itching to say “No you don't, in Jesus' name!” to something trying to pin you against the wall, then you are in a good place. But it's not what we say that counts. It's the position we take. And to understand our position, we need to better understand Jesus' position as He walked this earth.

Day two...

My prayer life was much simpler when I saw God as a vending machine. I put in a prayer and made a selection. If it came out, His answer was “Yes.” If it didn't come out, His answer was “No.” If I didn't know which selection I should make, but was hungry for something—anything—then I was okay with whatever He wanted to dispense.

Day five...

If you want to lose some weight, and you hear from friends about a nutritional supplement that aids in permanent weight loss, wouldn't you want to try it out? If you have trouble sleeping, and you hear from friends about a new kind of mattress that puts you out for the night, wouldn't you want to try it out? If you're usually ready to kill somebody by the time you get to work, and you hear from friends about a new recording artist whose latest CD brings on the calm, wouldn't you want to try it out?

Day six...

I remember when Sherrel and I visited with a young mother and her two children, while they were staying at a shelter for the homeless. Sherrel was there to help the distressed mother. My job was to keep the kids occupied. The young daughter was very calm and played quietly with her doll. The young son however, was completely out of control.

Day seven...

I've had this picture in my mind today of a frontier woman and her two small children sitting behind their cabin on a bluff overlooking a Colorado stream. On the blanket, which the mother had spread over the dirt, was a large picnic basket… and a rifle within easy reach. With one hand Mom would tenderly touch the faces of her children.
