Just One Number Off

[199 words] We understand the need to be exact when it comes to our daily life. Have you ever used a credit card to buy something on line? What happens if you are just one number off? You try to make a call and you miss just one number. What happened? You misread the...

What If You Were the Only One!

What If You Were the Only One!

[203 words] What if by some happenstance you were the only member of the Church left in your town? Does that seem farfetched? In some places in some cities you might be in that circumstance. If you were to find yourself in this situation, what would you do? Would you...

Would You Eat One?

Would You Eat One?

[231 words] I don't know how many of you have seen nutria. But if you fish in Louisiana you have seen them. They live near the water, and look like rats. They are not native to Louisiana and can and do destroy our wetlands. There is a move to convince people to hunt,...

Hard Does Not Mean Impossible!

Hard Does Not Mean Impossible!

[195 words] I have often used the expression, "it is hard to rise above your raising." Those who are raised in an abusive home often abuse others. Many who abuse drugs learned that way of living at home. Unfaithful parents raise unfaithful children. Such children grow...

‘The Poor You Have With You Always’

‘The Poor You Have With You Always’

[232 words] The above statement was made by Jesus in Matt. 26:11. Our government spends billions of dollars trying to help the poor of this nation. Compassion is a wonderful thing but most often their efforts fall short of success. Ever wonder why the poor are poor?...

Just Make Yourself!

Just Make Yourself!

[192 words] Dr. Paul Faulkner once said, "Sometimes you have to grab your 'wanter' by your 'willer' and just get busy." In other words you must simply get up and do what needs to be done. Everything in life isn't fun, or easy, or pleasant. Who really likes to clean a...

There is Another Way!

There is Another Way!

[213 words] We all like to play the game "what if." What if cell phones no longer worked, what if TV didn't come on anymore, what if all of our laptops, iPads, etc., failed? If all that were to happen what could we do? Would all be lost? Now I enjoy all the above...

Who Are These People?

Who Are These People?

[261 words] You hear about them on the news, you read about them in magazines. But who are the Kardashians? They must be someone important, perhaps like Lady Gaga. Really, who has a name Gaga? I must be out of touch, too old to be up with the newest fad. But should I...

What Time is It?

What Time is It?

[215 words] Ever been in a group of people and ask what time is it? How many answers did you get? You perhaps got as many answers as there were people with watches. Yet there is a place in Denver where time is correct to a split second. It is never wrong and many...

Dees The Bible Really Mean This?

Dees The Bible Really Mean This?

[238 words] "Do all things without complaining and disputing" (Phil. 2:14). When the children of Israel left the bondage of Egypt one of the first things they started to do was complain. If you recall God did not deal kindly with such actions, He put them to death! Do...

Don’t Wait!

Don’t Wait!

A number of years ago while in the study I received a call from a lady at the hospital. She said her husband wanted to see a Church of Christ preacher. I left the study and went to the hospital to see a man I had never seen before. He was near death and wanted me to...

No Rules

No Rules

Have you seen the ads that stress, “No Rules?” I think one ad is for beans and the other is for a steak house. There may be others that I have not seen yet. But think about it just a minute. What kind of world would we have if there were no rules to live by? Think of...

He Was a Very Meticulous Man

He Was a Very Meticulous Man

[143 words] He always took his trash to the curb on the day it was to be picked up. He never let his grass grow above two inches tall. He paid his bills a week ahead of time to avoid late fees. He never had over two cups of coffee in the morning. He washed his car...

When is a Shark Not a Shark?

When is a Shark Not a Shark?

[225 words] Surely you saw it on TV about a man who was going to race a great white shark. I didn’t see the show but I believe the shark won the race. But then the rage started. People found out that the shark was not real. It really was all a stunt, a farce. I am...

Impossible Things

Impossible Things

It is impossible to fold a fitted sheet. It is impossible to keep all the weeds out of your yard. It is impossible to kill all the fire ants you have at your home. It is impossible to get a real person when you call AT&T. It is impossible to stop junk mail from...

Have You Not Read?

Have You Not Read?

[177 words] This was a statement that Jesus made over and over again to those who would question Him. This was nearly always the case when dealing with those who should have known what the Law taught. The priest and the Pharisees who were supposed masters of the law...

On Being Perfect

On Being Perfect

[202 words] Matthew 5:48 states, “Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Can a human being with all their failing, inconsistencies, and sin ever be perfect? The answer is no! What then does this statement mean? I believe that Jesus...

This Will Make You Sad!

This Will Make You Sad!

I 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...
