Let Your Light Shine in a Dark World

Look around you. The world is a dark place. No matter where you turn, evil is having its day. There is only one way to lighten a dark world—Let your light shine. Don’t listen to me. Jesus said it best:

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Just before he said that, Jesus said: Continue reading

As Paris Mourns, God Weeps

Imagine being God and looking down at what has unfolded in Paris. In the name of some “god” (and I mean with a small “g”), a band of brutal, savage killers set the world on edge. If you are God you can only be shaking your head, asking yourself what you have done, and weeping as Paris mourns. Fortunately, none of us are God. Continue reading

Do You Recognize Jesus?

Easter’s over. We say that, “Jesus Is Risen!” But do we live Jesus is risen? Are we like the two disciples transfixed talking about Jesus so much that we can’t even recognize Jesus walking with us? Like most you probably say, “Of course, I would recognize Jesus if He were walking with me!” But do you know that Jesus will be walking with you today and I bet you don’t recognize Him at all! Continue reading

Do You Demand Service or Serve?

There are two paths in life: one is demanding service and the other is serving. It doesn’t matter whether in your work or personal life. You are either the type of person that demands service or who wants to serve. It’s a good week to think about this—and really be honest with yourself!—as we contemplate how Jesus lived his life. So, which path are you on? Continue reading

We Are Clay; God is Sculptor

There are very few people who realize what God would make of them if they abandoned themselves into his hands, and let themselves be formed by his grace.

Saint Ignatius Loyola

We are the clay and God is the sculptor. He can’t form you if you don’t let him. There’s a beautiful, unique piece of art in you but you have to Continue reading

Would You Walk Past This Homeless Child?

Watch this video and be honest with yourself—Would you walk past this homeless child? So many people did until just one person stopped. And look who stopped. Sobering.

Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of those who are members of my family, you did it to me. Matthew 25:40

Who will you pass by today—or stop and help?

Give to everyone who begs from you. Luke 6:30

Time to Die

You read it right—it’s time to die. Not in the way you are thinking but dying to Jesus. He died for us. We need to die to him. What does this mumbo-jumbo mean in a practical sense? It simply means if you are going to be a true Christian—in action, not just title—you need to leave “you” behind and start focusing on others. That’s what Jesus did and if you are going to really be a follower you need to follow Jesus’ lead. It’s that simple. Continue reading

We Are All Children of God!

Guy takes 10 minutes in the airport security line emptying out the contents of his life from his pockets. Woman talks so loudly on her phone about her life that the whole plane can hear her before taking off. Guy next to me takes his shoes off and the odor is stifling. A lot of people operate in their own worlds oblivious to others around them. Then, there are some who are very aware of others and all they want to do is kill them because of their race, religious beliefs, or some other reason. There is one inescapable fact about everyone—we are all children of God! Period, end of statement. There are no exceptions! Continue reading
