The Yoke is On You - I believe God wants us to enjoy our everyday lives. In John 10:10, says that Jesus came to us so we may have and enjoy life and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). This can be understood as a fulfilling life where we are at peace and satisfied. Now, it is not only fair to say but necessary,… Read More
Treasures and Trust - On the dollar bill, we find the statement “In God We Trust.” That is quite a declaration, even more so, as it conjures a kind of hope that is beyond our grasps of understanding. In general, this is a very positive thought, but we need to ask who God is and why do we trust him. As Christians, for example,… Read More
The Blessing Factor - Would you agree that today is easy to look around and see negativity, lacking, and suffering? I mean, of course, there is a lot of goodness and acts of kindness that happen every day. Still, in general, whether we keep up with the latest news, social media trends, or gossip within our family or any other groups we belong to,… Read More
What Do You Say? Thank You! - The Roman philosopher Cicero once said that gratitude is the parent of all virtues. It’s not difficult to see how this would be true. Gratitude is a virtue that contains many other virtues. For example, to be genuinely grateful to someone or for something, one must also be humble, generous, and kind. This is why, as parents, we spend so… Read More
Can’t Live Without You - Did you know that as a child of God, you have a very special relationship, a powerful connection with other people, particularly Christians? The apostle Paul speaks about and explains this in his first letter to the church in Corinth, saying, “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though… Read More
Unmet Expectations - Isn’t it true that life does not always turn out the way we want it to?  Maybe we don’t get that promotion we think you deserve, or we are struggling with our health. Or maybe our marriage doesn’t turn out the way we imagined or our parents or children have disappointed us. We have worked hard for all of this and done… Read More
The Things We Leave Undone - Today, I am sharing about the topic of compassion. If there is one thing that all of us could benefit from in the times in which we are living in, is the ability to relate to the needs, pain, and suffering of others. Imagine if everyone look after one another to help contribute to their wellness? How different would our… Read More
The Power to Call - Today is Pentecost Sunday. What is Pentecost Sunday, you may ask? The word “Pentecost” designates the 50th day after Passover (remember that Passover is when the Jews commemorate their liberation from the Egyptian oppression through the leadership of Moses as told in the book of Exodus). Another name for Pentecost was “The Feast of Weeks.” It was so-called because it… Read More
The Power to Tell - What would you do if you had all the power in the world? Would you be generous to help people or a tyrant that does as he/she pleases? This question about power may excite out the best of our generosity and self-giving or the worst of our ambition and greed. Writer Robert Ingersoll in speaking of Abraham Lincoln, said, “But… Read More
Don’t Be Quick to Quit - Luke 24: 13-21, Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and talking with each other about all these things that had happened. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them, but their eyes were kept from recognizing him. And he said to them, “What are you… Read More
