Today’s System Can’t Handle Righteous People Founded Upon Godly Wisdom

Sadly, the system now cannot handle intelligent, bright children rooted in Godly wisdom ready to take-on the world. Those children grow into ungovernable adults, entrepreneurs and risk takers grounded in their knowledge of who they are in relation to God’s Word and their enormous value to God – regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability or any other personal characteristic.

Did You Know God Loves to Showcase His Mercy?

How would we live our lives if we truly understood that our purpose is to love Him and to love His reflection in our neighbors? The truth is we are chosen, loved, welcomed, counted holy and blameless because of what Christ accomplished on the cross for us. Jesus said “It is finished” (John 19:30) and He alone paid the price for us to be received by His Father in eternity.

Christians, Can We Stop Romanticizing Marriage & Scriptures Already?

Don’t get me wrong, I believe healthy marriages are the foundation to any flourishing society and I’m in no way minimizing or chastising marriage or the need for children and families. I’m simply advocating for realism in our Christian literature and daily devotionals targeted towards women – especially as it relates to the relationship between Christ as the bridegroom and the church as the bride. It's like the Easter Bunny to Christ’s Resurrection or Santa Clause to the Birth of Christ - and it's the exact reason I prefer Oswald Chambers over others like Max Lucado.
