Easier Said Than Done
I guess we have all heard the statement, “Easier Said Than Done,” when it comes to getting something accomplished that seems difficult. I have found that I can settle someone else’s problems easier than getting my own house in order!

When Helping Can Really Hurt
I had just arrived at home from a long day of work. I noticed my wife’s car was gone, which meant she was with it. Most days my wife greets me at door with a hug and asks me about the events of my day. Today, no hug and no greeting!

How To Live In Fearful Times
Terrorists killing people in the name of their religion, a crazed man shooting dozens at a concert, the threat of a nuclear war...these are just some of the things that are genuine reason for concern these days.  But Christians have a source for the courage to face these times--and a responsibility to spread God's love and message of hope for the world.
