Psalm 38:11 (NLT) 11 My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease. Even my own family stands at a distance. Psalm 142:4 (NLT) 4 I look for someone to come and help me, but no one gives me a passing thought! No one will help me; no one cares a bit what happens to me.

Episode 166: The Peace Plan Day 22

Psalm 106:44 (NLT) 44 Even so, he pitied them in their distress and listened to their cries. Before you can care, you’ve got to be aware. You have to pay attention. You have to put up your antenna. You have to start looking at people and listening to people and looking for the clues that say, “I’m in pain.” Matthew 9:36-38 The Message (MSG) 35-38 Then Jesus made a circuit of all the towns and villages. He taught in their meeting places, reported kingdom news, and healed their diseased...

2 Corinthians 8:1-9 (NLT) A Call to Generous Giving 8 Now I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, what God in his kindness has done through the churches in Macedonia. 2 They are being tested by many troubles, and they are very poor. But they are also filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity. 3 For I can testify that they gave not only what they could afford, but far more. And they did it of their own free will. 4 They begged us again and again for the...


Episode 162: The Peace Plan Day 18

Acts 6 New Living Translation (NLT) Seven Men Chosen to Serve 6 But as the believers rapidly multiplied, there were rumblings of discontent. The Greek-speaking believers complained about the Hebrew-speaking believers, saying that their widows were being discriminated against in the daily distribution of food. 2 So the Twelve called a meeting of all the believers. They said, “We apostles should spend our time teaching the word of God, not running a food program. 3 And so, brothers, select...


Episode 163: The Peace Plan Day 19

Isaiah 58:10-11 (NLT) 10 Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon. 11 The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.


Episode 161: The Peace Plan Day 17

Deuteronomy 24:10-15 (NLT) 10 “If you lend anything to your neighbor, do not enter his house to pick up the item he is giving as security. 11 You must wait outside while he goes in and brings it out to you. 12 If your neighbor is poor and gives you his cloak as security for a loan, do not keep the cloak overnight. 13 Return the cloak to its owner by sunset so he can stay warm through the night and bless you, and the Lord your God will count you as righteous. 14 “Never take advantage of...


Episode 160: The Peace Plan Day 16

Psalm 41:1 (NKJV) 41 Blessed is he who considers the poor; The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. You may have heard of the blessings Jesus spoke of in His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-10). Here’s a “blessing” from the Old Testament that is less well-known: “Blessed is he who considers the poor” (Psalm 41:1). The Hebrew word translated “considers” means “to take thought for others.” The word translated “poor” means “those in need.” There are many people around us who are...


Episode 159: The Peace Plan Day 15

Proverbs 29:7 (NKJV) 7 The righteous considers the cause of the poor, But the wicked does not understand such knowledge. The year was 1780, and Robert Raikes had a burden for the poor, illiterate children in his London neighborhood. He noticed that nothing was being done to help these children, so he set out to make a difference. He hired some women to set up schools for them on Sunday. Using the Bible as their textbook, the teachers taught the poorest children of London to read and...


Episode 158: The Peace Plan Day 14

1 Peter 4:10-11(NLT) 10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 11 Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen. We often ask what is the most important...


Episode 157: The Peace Plan Day 13

Titus 1:5-9 (NLT) 5 I left you on the island of Crete so you could complete our work there and appoint elders in each town as I instructed you. 6 An elder must live a blameless life. He must be faithful to his wife, and his children must be believers who don’t have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. 7 A church leader is a manager of God’s household, so he must live a blameless life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or dishonest with...


Episode 155: The Peace Plan Day 11

Matthew 20:28 “The Son of Man did not come to be served. He came to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many people.”


Episode 156: The Peace Plan Day 12

2 Timothy 2:2 (NLT) 2 You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. Notice the generations here. Paul says I gave it to you, Timothy … Timothy, you’re to give it to reliable leaders … and they’re supposed to give it to other people. There’s 4 generations in that verse—Paul, Timothy, reliable leaders, others. Friends, that’s what The PEACE Plan is all...


Episode 154: The Peace Plan Day 10

1 Peter 2:12 (ICB) 12 People who do not believe are living all around you. They might say that you are doing wrong. So live good lives. Then they will see the good things you do, and they will give glory to God on the day when Christ comes again.

1 Timothy 4:12 (NLT) 12 Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.


Episode 153: The Peace Plan Day 9

Hebrews 10:24 (AMP) 24 and let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds, “A word of encouragement from a teacher to a child can change a life. A word of encouragement from a spouse can save a marriage. A word of encouragement from a leader can inspire a person to reach her potential.” — John C. Maxwell One of the great things about encouragement is that you don’t have to be brilliant to encourage people; you just have to have a heart for...


Episode 151: The Peace Plan Day 7

Our natural tendency is to hate our enemies or at least to avoid them at all cost. But if you run from conflict, you’re going to be miserable most of your life. Jesus calls us to a higher standard. He calls us to be peacemakers — not peacekeepers. There’s a huge difference. Peacekeepers avoid conflict and pretend it doesn’t exist. But peacemakers resolve conflict and reconcile relationships. 18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness....


Episode 150:The Peace Plan Day 6

Matthew 18:21-35 (ICB) When the US Civil War ended in 1865, more than half a million soldiers lay dead, the economy and infrastructure of the nation was shattered, and people remained deeply divided politically. The observance of Mother’s Day in the United States began with the efforts for peace and reconciliation of one woman In 1870, named Anna Reeves Jarvis. The daughter of a Methodist minister she began in her community a day called “Mother’s Friendship Day” in an effort to reunite...


Episode 149: The Peace Plan Day 5

“Search for peace, and work to maintain it” (1 Peter 3:11 NLT). Today I want to help by giving some practical advice about how to help during a time of relationship conflict and that is to emphasize reconciliation, not resolution. It’s unrealistic to expect everyone to agree about everything. Reconciliation focuses on the relationship, while resolution focuses on the problem. When we focus on reconciliation, the problem loses significance and often becomes irrelevant compared to the...


Episode 148: The Peace Plan Day 4

“First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye” (Matthew 7:5 NLT). OK, so this week we so far we have been focusing on reconciliation and mainly we have talked about reconciliation between man and God but today I want to talk about reconciling our relationships with each other. If you’re serious about restoring a relationship, begin with admitting your own mistakes or sin. Jesus said it’s the way to see things more...
