Set the Tone | Parenting – Children 2

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6   A proverb is a wise saying that is generally true. For example, verse 4 says, “The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life.” Verse 29…

Set The Tone | Church

On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem…  Acts 8:1   Things were heating up. Jerusalem authorities had declared war on Christ followers, declaring them troublemakers. Christians were disrupting the status quo and they needed to be stopped. Religion had been fine before that Rabbi showed up with His talk…

Set The Tone | Church

So the men… went to Antioch, where they gathered the church together and delivered the letter.  Acts 15:30   How do you gather a church together? How do you know who they are? If the church is the family of God, consisting of all baptized believers, the only way to know this family is if…

Set The Tone | Church

Elders who lead effectively are worthy of double honor, especially those who preach and teach. 1 Timothy 5:17   “I’ve told the pastor we’re leaving. My sister’s neighbor’s dog was sick for a week and nobody called us,” declared Jack. “Well, I can vouch for that because I’ve been in his office for counseling every…

—  “…on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”  Mark 16:18   That was Jesus talking. He was a carpenter, after all, so we might expect Him to whip out a hammer and nails and order the disciples to gather wood to build the First…

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…
