Stand Firm/Love Well | What Jesus Showed Us | Speak Their Language

Mrs. White slammed the classroom door and sank against the hallway wall, pressing her fingers to her temples. Her principal, Mr. Davis, stopped and gave her a puzzled look. “Something wrong, Mrs. White?” She shook her head and mumbled toward the floor, “I’m beyond frustrated. I have explained the lesson so carefully every day this…

Stand Firm/Love Well | What Jesus Showed Us | Keep Your Eyes Up

Matt stood alone in the schoolyard, knees knocking but face set. An hour ago he had been part of the fun—until the fun turned ugly.

Stand Firm/Love Well | What Jesus Showed Us | Connect

He’d learned to ignore the smirks and catcalls that followed him everywhere he went. People hated him and he understood why. He was a traitor. He’d sold out.

This tastes bland.” A smiling waitress appeared at their table. “Everything okay here, gentlemen?” Bill shook his head. “This…

Stand Firm/Love Well | What Happens in the Fire | No Idol

They knew the moment they heard the king’s edict that this day would come. Tattletales couldn’t wait to cause trouble.

Stand Firm/Love Well | What Happens in the Fire | Do Not Defile

Before the king’s edict, before the fiery furnace, Daniel had made a vow that he would not become like the idol-worshiping people who had captured him.
