Set the Tone | Parenting – Children 1

Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.  Psalm 127:3   She blinked unseeing at the test strip in her hand. Positive. No doubt about it. Time stood still as she tried to get her mind around it. Please not now, when so much is happening. How would she tell…

Set the Tone | Marriage

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.” Philippians 2:3   Who’s the boss? What, submit? ME? I’m the MAN! You’re not the boss of me! Submission. Authority…. Tug-of-war. Fighting words. Any time marriage is discussed in church, it seems to center around the male/female power struggle. Are…

Set the Tone | Parenting – Kids

“…commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands…repeat them…to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.”  Deuteronomy 6:6-7   “I expect the church to give my children religious instruction,” stated Jack. “That’s why I drop…

Set the Tone | Parenting – Obeying

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  Ephesians 6:1   “I’m warning you, Jayden! One…two…” We’ve all heard versions of this parenting technique when a frazzled mom or dad delays the discipline that could put an end to Jayden’s tyranny. One reason children do not obey their parents is because the…

Set the Tone | Marriage

 “…whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another…commits adultery.”  Matthew 19:9   Jayne wiped her eyes and stared into her coffee cup. “I just don’t like him anymore,” she whispered. “He’s not the knight in shining armor I thought he was, and Brad at work is so sweet…” Her friend nodded sympathetically. “I…

Set The Tone | Marriage

“But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ Therefore…”  Mark 10:6 Our world is locked in heated debate about the definition of marriage, which is odd because marriage has never needed defined in all the millenniums before now. Some things are so obvious it seems ridiculous to ask, but a few people…

Boundaries and Consequences

“…If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.” Genesis 2:17 Kelvin shifted into Drive and stomped the accelerator. His Mustang roared onto the highway, narrowly missing a dump truck. “Dude!” his buddy shouted. “What’s wrong with you? Show down!” Kelvin grinned at the speedometer as it made its steady progress upward. “I decided…

Tending Your Garden | Tuesday

…the LORD God…brought them to the man to see what he would call them… Genesis 2:19 Imagine the Lord appearing to you and saying, “I’ve just created a beautiful mountain range on a remote island. What do you think I should name it?” Or what if He showed up with a color that had never…

New Year’s Refusals – Thursday

“…forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on…” – Philippians 3:13-14 Picture yourself 10 years ago. Fifteen years ago. If the memory makes you cringe, that’s a good sign you’re making progress. Ignore the hairstyle and the outlandish fashion (c’mon, you thought it was cool!), and look deeper. Look past…

New Year’s Refusals – Wednesday

“…each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment… ” – Hebrews 9:27 Humanity has invented dozens of outlandish scenarios to make itself feel better about death. The Bible is clear, but the idea of death and then judgement makes us uncomfortable. So we’ve created ideas like Purgatory (where you get a second…
