How Do I Listen For God's Calling?

5/5/2021
An acquaintance tells about a businessman who called a friend and got the run-around. "May I please speak with Mr. Jones?" "Just a minute, sir, while I transfer you to his department." Second try: "May I speak with Mr. Jones?" "I'm sorry, I'll have to connect you with his division." After two minutes on hold, a voice comes on the phone and asks, "Who did you want to talk with?" "Mr. Jones, please." "Just a minute..."

Find Out How Much Is Enough

5/4/2021
How much is enough? To be very candid with you, that is a question that I have struggled with personally for several years. Oh, it isn't that I have so much or think I need so much that I have drawn a line and said to myself, "When I get there, I'll give the rest away." The issue with me involves a lifestyle. It is part of the fabric of my faith forced by my coming to grips with the needs of the world.

Learn How To Live Without Clutter

5/3/2021
Have you ever heard it said that three moves are as good as a fire? What that means is that every time you move, you throw out things, good things too, which you would like to keep but there is no room to keep them. Why didn't you toss it out a long time ago? You kept it because you were sure it was too good to throw away, so you put it in the closet or stored it in your garage. Eventually, you have to reckon with it. If you want to label the disorder, call it, "CLUTTER!" It isn't only our...

The Spiritual Laws Of Giving And Receiving

4/30/2021
Scientists have clearly defined laws that govern our physical world‑‑laws that have been in operation since creation. Those laws are subject neither to the ideas or philosophies of humankind. For example, Sir Isaac Newton articulated the law of gravitation, showing that the gravitational pull of something is inversely proportioned to the mass of the attracting object. The law of gravity has nothing to do with how I feel, or what I think, or whether or not governments should pass laws...

4 Reasons Why You Should Challenge Culture

4/29/2021
Have you ever asked yourself what prompts a mom who leads her three grade school kids to the school bus to become a leader in a cultural battle? Or an unremarkable seamstress in the back of the bus to defy the law of the land? Quiet and unassuming people who become passionate for a cause, and to the great surprise of even themselves, often lead the fight for right. How does that happen? What makes some strong enough to lead the fight while others, far better equipped and prepared, are...

Why Psalms Is Such a Great Book

4/28/2021
You can afford to be ignorant of many things—you can hire an attorney to handle your legal stuff, an accountant to do your books, and a doctor to keep you healthy—but the individual who is ignorant of the Bible has an ignorance he can ill afford.

Are You Part Of the Cultural Battle?

4/27/2021
Cultural battles are far more extensive than whether or not your child's teacher embraces gender fluidity or if parents should be notified when a teenager requests contraceptives from a clinic.

What Happens When Culture Clashes With Faith?

4/26/2021
Never has a generation wanted more from its culture that only Jesus Christ could provide than our present one. Like what? The comforts of prosperity including a home and car, happiness, and money in the bank. When that is the driving force of a society, vast numbers of people buy into the God-will-deliver-the-goods mentality, expecting Him to be the great provider of our expectations. This also explains why there are so many broken homes in the Christian community, why vast numbers of people...

Do You Give Your All To Jesus, Or Just Some?

4/23/2021
Any traveler to Rome today, making his way through the ruins of what was once the greatest city in the world, would have to admit, whatever they were short on, it was not temples. Outdone only by the Athenians, the Romans had temples to the stars and to the gods, to the muses and to the politicians who thought they were gods. There were plenty of them!

3 Guidelines To Follow God Wholeheartedly

4/22/2021
Your brain may rule your head, but it is your heart which rules your emotions, and emotions are to life what pigment is to paint. When your heart is committed, your world is together; but when it is divided, you are headed for trouble.

Are You Courageous Enough To Obey?

4/21/2021
When Moses knew that time for him was running out, he gave a charge to Joshua, saying, "Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach" (Deuteronomy 30:11). As a man who knew his days--possibly even his hours—were numbered, he gave it to him straight. He said that obedience is a choice, a decision which you make. And with obedience comes blessing; with disobedience comes difficulty.

Do The End Justify The Means?

4/20/2021
A five-year-old Australian girl was "doing very well" after a heart-lung transplant in London, but her father halfway around the world in Melbourne wasn't doing very well. Robert Edward Matthews, then aged 39, was apprehended for robbing a McDonald's restaurant to help pay for the surgery which gave the promise of new life to his little girl.

"Dear Dr. Sala," writes an 8-year-old friend of Guidelines, "my name is Amy and I have a problem with my friends. Missy won't like me if I like Aimee! I like both of them but I don't understand! I don't know what to do! Could you tell me...?" Signed, "Amy--your 8-year-old friend."

How To Truly Forgive Others

4/16/2021
FORGIVEN! No word in all the English language quite speaks to the heart of man as does this one word. Pause for a moment and pronounce the word several times: forgiven, forgiven! Forgiveness involves three areas of relationship--and the three, like the structure of a honeycomb, are all intertwined.

Dealing With Past Failure And Guilt

4/14/2021
A student caught cheating on an exam, stops going to church. A mother of a child with disabilities lives in constant torment, convinced that God is punishing her child because she lived with her husband for a year before they were married and conceived her child during that time. A senior citizen--the victim of three heart attacks--sends a large check to a man who was his business partner forty years before with a terse note saying, "I had to get this off my chest before I meet my maker..."

What Is Most Important To God?

When the astronauts on the Apollo 8 were speeding back to planet earth from their rendezvous with the moon, they reflected on the vastness of what they had seen in space by reading the words of the eighth Psalm where David wrote, "When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; What is man that Thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that Thou visitest him? For Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him...

Island shrouded in heavy fog--am going on," was Richard Haliburton's last radio message before he sailed into oblivion. Haliburton was a flamboyant adventurer and explorer who was attempting to sail from Hong Kong to San Francisco in a Chinese junk. He intended to stop in Taiwan for supplies, but when he approached the island, he could not see light and assumed that it was shrouded in fog. It was not but Haliburton did not know that. The lights had been blanketed in a practice air-raid...

In 1923 a group of men who were considered winners met at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago. Present were eight of the world's most successful financiers. Like whom?
