Quit Complaining!

The text for my devotional was very familiar. In fact, I had taught it to my children as soon as they were old enough to protest. We even memorized the verse with the aid of a catchy tune by Steve Green. Philippians 2:14-16 says, “Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.”

The writer of Hebrews 10:24-25 states: “…and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.” (NASB)

Itís Not a Prayer, or Is It?

The issue of the use of prayer to open a legislative meeting will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court this fall.  The high court agreed to decide whether or not an upstate New York town is violating the Constitution with its prayers to open public meetings.  The justices will review an appeals court ruling that held that the town of Greece, a Rochester suburb, violated the constitutional prohibitions on government sanction of religion by opening nearly every meeting over an 11-year span with prayers that trended Christian.

Ever have things completely bottom out?  Maybe you are David being chased by Saul (I Samuel 19), Samson without hair (Judges 16:20-22), Job without worldly goods (Job 2:13), John the Baptist in prison (Mark 6:27) or Jesus on the cross (Matthew 27:46).  Just because you are a Christian does not make you immune from your world crashing and your entering into a Dark Night, a feeling of isolation – a feeling of being abandoned by God.  Like Jesus on the cross, we cry out, “My God.  My God.  Why has thou forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46)

Debt Settlement and Mortgage Terms

Q.  I’m working on my debt snowball, and I’m trying to settle with a pushy collector. I don’t have the $9,000 I owe, but I have $3,000 I’d like to offer as a settlement. Recently the collector has started asking for a lot of information I don’t feel comfortable providing. What should I do?

When Jesus started His earthly ministry He began to proclaim that the kingdom of heaven was at hand. He clarified that the kingdom of God was within man, which baffled those living at that time and added a sense of urgency in understanding its importance to mankind.
