Home Improvement

UNUSED 0[587 words] Recently as Alice and I were traveling, we saw this bumper sticker on the back of a vehicle:‘Home Improvement Begins With the King James Bible.’ We speak of home improvement in different ways.

Do You Have a Moses on Your Hands?

How to Bring up Children

UNUSED 0The rearing of children is probably the most difficult task on the face of this earth. All of us desperately want our children to turn out right. I certainly do not claim to have all the answers. As a matter of fact, the older I get the less I know. However, I want to make some suggestions in...

Parents, Please Read: There’s Trouble in the Land

UNUSED 0There’s trouble in the land. No wide-awake person will deny that! These upheavals have caused many parents to express apprehension concerning the future of their children. That’s understandable. When our children graduate from high school and leave home, many of them also leave the church. Suddenly they are exposed to an environment hostile to...

Joseph

UNUSED 0The picture of a truly successful man is seen in Joseph. As we view him in his late thirties, he is in the courts of Pharaoh with the number two position In the land. But his success was measured by more than that. He was a righteous man who, even in his youth refused...

The Importance of Family

UNUSED 1Picture this Scene. A little baby boy is born in a hospital and everyone is so excited. However, when it comes time to take him home, the parents say, “we think he should stay here with you.” While such would never happen to a child born into a loving or even semi-loving family, the question...

Making a Difference in the Family

This Will Make You Sad!

UNUSED 0I grew up watching “Father Knows Best,” and “Life With Father.” These shows revealed a father that cared for his family, loved his wife and children, and was looked upon as wise. Contrast that with so-called family shows on TV today. The family is revealed as similar to a cage full of monkeys. The...

Parenting

The preacher was impressed by the intelligence and unusually good behavior of their only child, a little four-year-old boy. Then the preacher discovered one reason for the child’s charm.

“Will Your Children Go to Heaven?”

UNUSED 0Church leaders all over the nation are concerned about the drop-out rate of young people. And well they should be.
