Do you know someone who experienced tragedy or trauma associated with the tornadoes of April 2011? Do you have a military service member in your family who has rotated in and out of Iraq or Afghanistan? Have you been through a terrifying situation which was beyond your ability to control, where you believed life and limb was at stake, and where, at that time, there seemed to be no resources available for help? Does it seem to have changed you, or the person you’re thinking of, in a harmful way?

Modeling True Marital Love For Your Kids

Written by Brenda Payne

As a Christian wife and mother, I have a responsibility to love my husband biblically and to teach my children the true meaning of marital love. I cannot teach them what I do not understand. I cannot convince them of what I do not practice. If I allow my children to be informed by the culture, the view of love they will develop will be the very opposite of true love. Think about it. Most modern movies, TV shows, and songs picture marital love as something to get not give; something to feel not do; and something that is easily dissolved not fiercely protected. In fact, if I leave my children with no biblical explanation to shape their mindset and no godly example to follow, why would they get married at all? The predominant cultural view of marriage flies in the face of the sanctity of marriage found in the Scriptures. Hollywood portrays shacking up and splitting up not only as the norm, but desirable. Of course, Christians know that the eroding of marriage leads to a host of family and societal problems. So, what am I am to do as a mother who desires that my children embrace marital love as defined by the Scriptures? I can only do what I can do: teach, model and pray!

Are Unemployment Benefits Moral?

Written by Dave Ramsey

Question: I recently lost my job due to layoffs. I’m luckier than most, because I’m debt-free except for my house, and I have three months of expenses saved. I’ll also receive a severance package from my former employer, and my wife still has her job. I’m struggling with whether or not to file for unemployment compensation. Do you think it’s morally okay to do this?

Dirty Armor = Clean Kids

In 1 Samuel chapter 17, King Saul and the entire Israelite army are all dressed up in their battle armor, but nobody wants to go down into the valley and get down and dirty against the giant Goliath. For 40 days and 40 nights they all stand around in shiny armor.
