Life Isn’t Fair, But It Isn’t God’s Fault!

[387 words] The atheist would argue that the reason life isn’t fair is because there is no God. The agnostic would say that life’s “unfairness” is “evidence” of why he or she can’t make his/her mind up about God. The apathetic, religious person would point to life’s lack of fairness as the reason why he can’t get excited about God and be busy about His work. I can remember a few well known charities across the nation that were found stealing money from their prospective funds. Of course, only a few people were involved, but the theft gave the charities...

Psalm 119:30

  [79 words] “I have chosen the faithful way; I have placed Your ordinances before me.” Life is a series of choices. One will not be faithful to God simply because his parents were, or because he wishes to be, or because he sits in a church building a few times a week. One can only be faithful to God when he chooses to set the law of God before him, walking in “the faithful way.” What choice will you make today? Eddie Parrish Bedford, TX...

Path Determines Destination

[421 words] God created us as free moral agents. We choose the path we take in life, for good or for ill. While most of us relish our freedom, the down side is that we must take responsibility for the choices we make. I like the way Joe Fitch put it: “When you choose the road, you also necessarily include the destination.” Most people give little or no consideration to the destination when selecting their path. Immediate gratification clouds our thinking. How much thought do you suppose the Israelites gave to their destination when they started down the path of...

Is Life Fair?

[333 words] Is life fair? Do we always have our needs met? It seems like in life we expect to be able to control every thing that happens to us. In a recent Oklahoma high school football game, the referees mistakenly erased a go-ahead touchdown because of an erroneous assessment of a penalty. The coach and the school district have stated, “It’s not fair that these young people should be punished because of a mistake by the adult referees.” They have even filed legal action in district court to try to force the game to be replayed. Regardless of whether...

Momentous Decisions

  [226 words] Not every decision you make will be a major one. It matters not which type of car you buy, as long as it is not a lemon! It does not matter whether you wear a suit and tie or some other modest outfit to worship. But some decisions are life changing. Some decisions either build your character and reputation or destroy you. These are momentous decisions: marriage partner, the career you pursue, whether or not to serve the God of the Bible, whether or not to worship God and how you do that worship. Moses saw a...

Are You A Buzzard?

“Both the hummingbird and the vulture fly ove r our nation’s deserts. All vultures see is rotting meat, because that is what they look for. They thrive on that diet. But hummingbirds ignore the smelly flesh of dead animals. Instead, they look for the colorful blossoms of desert plants. The vultures live on what was. They live on the past. They fill themselves with what is dead and gone. But hummingbirds live on what is. They seek new life. They fill themselves with freshness and life. Each bird finds what it is looking for. We all do.” (Reader’s Digest, May...
