Q. My husband and I have been saving, and we’re ready to buy our first home. We found a place we both love and can afford if we do a 30-year mortgage instead of a 15-year mortgage. Should we wait and save more for a down payment so we can afford a 15-year mortgage, or go ahead and do the 30-year deal?

Trust is Essential

We are born with the need to trust. It is the way that that trust is met or not met that plays a huge role in the development of our lives. Trust is an essential requirement for human life. Without it, life is extremely hard to navigate. Failure to trust can leave us isolated and unable to realize our true potential because we fear being hurt.

How Do We "Filter"?

Perhaps you are aware of the previously contentious nature of the relationship between the VidAngel filtering service and various studios.  VidAngel has re-launched after being shut down, after an “injunction was obtained” by Disney, Fox, and Warner.  In the old system, according to the Deadline website, “VidAngel cracked the encryption on discs, then sold and repurchased the content in transactions with consumers who specified edits. In effect, the sale and re-purchase created a cheap, family-friendly rental of popular films...”

Caring for the Next Generation

When my children were younger, I remember deciding to purchase them a new jacket and wearing my threadbare coat for yet another year. This proves true the quote: “A real parent is someone who puts their kids above their selfish wants and needs.” These words sound like they were taken straight from the pages of the Bible. Our Father God demonstrated the ultimate selfless act when He gave His only Son to redeem humanity. Unfortunately, we have seen an increase in behavior from our peers toward the next generation that doesn’t mimic God’s actions. We often fall in line with King Hezekiah in 2 Kings 20.

Jesus and Performance Fatigue

In the classic play, Fiddler on the Roof, a husband and wife have two daughters who have both fallen in love. The husband, noticing how happy the daughters are, turns to his wife and asks her, “Do you love me?” She responds:

 

Do I love you?  For twenty-five years I have washed your clothes, cooked your meals, cleaned your house, given you children, milked the cow. After twenty-five years, why talk about love right now? Do I love him? For twenty-five years I have lived with him, fought with him, starved with him. Twenty-five years my bed is his. If that’s not love, what is?

…to which the husband nervously mutters, “Then you love me?”

Copilot Fruit Bearers

Years ago a bumper sticker became popular that stated, “God is my copilot.”  On the positive side, that message shows us that we are to work side by side with the Lord in all things and trust Him completely. That is certainly true. On the negative side, it seems to indicate that God is here to assist us with our plans.

Reconciled as One

Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed part of our country at its worse.  People in a country that was built on populations from around the world, coming together in this “melting pot” called America.  Our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence said; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” and our pledge to our nation is as “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!”  But what we have seen in the past few weeks is a division within the country over ideologies, race, creed and politics.  Yes, we have the right to speak our minds, but at the cost of our neighbor’s property and rights?  I think not.  Especially, if we are to align ourselves with the Christian Church.
