Dave has Answers to Your Questions!

Skipping to the Altar

Q. My wife and I make good money, and our daughter’s college education is pretty much paid for through pre-paid tuition and scholarships. We just started your plan to get out of debt and take better control of our finances. When we get to Baby Step 5, which is saving for college, can we substitute that with saving for a wedding?

Can We So Love the World?

In 1954, when I was five years old, I had a friend about my age who lived nearby. Let’s call him Johnny. Nearby was about a quarter of a mile away on a dirt road in Macon County, Alabama.

 

For months, Johnny and I had a good time playing with marbles, blocks, and little plastic trucks in the sand. Then something terrible happened. I had a birthday.

RRJ:  Growing up, you attended church with your grandparents and mom and were baptized at age 12.  Was this when you realized your need for Jesus’ offer of salvation? 

 

Brad:  No, my baptism felt very ceremonial, like it was a graduation event for taking the baptism class at church.  It wasn’t until Young Life camp at Windy Gap, North Carolina that I realized Jesus could truly change my life.  I realized that His path to eternal life was a better choice, my peer group was healthier, and just the experience of His grace was indescribable.

It’s summertime and one of the most popular things to do, especially in our state, is take a family vacation to the beach.  As I write this article, the threat of a tropical storm is looming in the Gulf of Mexico and, as you probably know, that makes the surf even more dangerous than usual.  One of the deadliest things about the ocean is not the sharks or the wildlife,  it is actually the undertow.  It is the rip current that lies behind the surface which will, if you do not have solid footing, suck you under the waves and drag you out to sea.
