No Foolin’

Day two...

A couple of interesting “facts” from North Korea's official website (www.korea‐dpr.com) under the heading “Business in DPR Korea”:

  • Highly qualified, loyal and motivated personnel. Education, housing and health service is provided free to all citizens. As opposed to other Asian countries, workers will not abandon their positions for higher salaries once they are trained.
  • Stable. A government with solid security and very stable political system, without corruption.

No Foolin’

Day three...

Justice is a big word. We want justice for ourselves… for those we love… for those we think are mistreated. But justice defined by human opinion is not true justice; it is deception. As an example, the legislation (passed over the last half‐century here in America) demanding justice for the poor should have resulted in less poor folks. But the poor are increasing in numbers. How is this justice?

Day four...

If we want to stop being fooled, we have to begin to see justice from God's perspective. Studying Esau's life reveals to us just how different God's view of justice is from ours. If you haven't already, please study yesterday's article before continuing.

Joy

Day one...

“Mike! Don't spoil your appetite!” Mom would yell, as I ran out the back door with as many cookies as my little hands could hold.

Trust in Action

Day two...

In 2016, because no incumbent is running, a little over half of the American people will be looking for someone new to trust as President of the United States. The rest of the country will just sit it out—some undoubtedly because they've just run out of trust. But those who'll vote will believe (or at least hope) their candidate's going to be a better President than the last one. It's probably been that way since George Washington.

God Wants to Cover Us with His Identity

Understanding Identity. Day one...

“You're walking like the dead lice are falling off you!” When I was a boy, this was Dad's way of telling me to pick up the pace. I suppose I was moving pretty slowly if I didn't have enough motion to even keep lice alive.

What Is Controlling Us?

Understanding identity. Day five...

I was walking with some folks a few weeks ago when one person said, “My knees are telling me that it's going to rain.”

Our Identity in Christ Doesn’t Happen Automatically

Understanding Identity. Day eight...

In the early seventies, I lived for a while on Halstead Street in Chicago, just north of the Cabrini‐Green housing project. If you're not familiar with the name, it was the poster child of all that was wrong with public housing in the United States. Home to as many as 15,000 people, it was one gigantic crime scene for many years.
