Focus on verse 2369d97265-3f75-4fe9-9010-88bf63a699af-355-0000004958ea3abd_tmp

You have perhaps heard it said that what goes around, comes around. In my experience I have observed this to be true more often than not. People who make it a pattern to intentionally take advantage of other people tend to eventually get the same treatment themselves. It may not always appear to be the case because there Continue reading

Life is Short (unlike this post)

Read Numbers 31
Focus on verse 7-8A068C64A-BBAE-41D3-AFC5-F7A96385129B-2109-0000079BF8073E10

There are things in life that are uncertain, and there are things in life that we can count on…like death… and taxes. We live in an age and culture in which we have tried very hard to insulate ourselves from death, as if we may somehow live longer if we don’t acknowledge the certainty of it. This disconnect from reality causes all Continue reading

Everybody likes a party right? Celebrations have their place when we have occasions to celebrate. Birthdays, graduations, promotions are all valid reasons to party, though I would note that not all partying results in wholesome activity.
In today’s reading the people are given instruction on how to celebrate in a manner Continue reading

I Like Food!

Read Numbers 28
Focus v. IMG_1068

I’ll admit it – I am addicted to food. If I stop eating my body begins to go into withdrawal. I start to get pains in my stomach, and I suspect that if I stopped eating for long enough I might die! In addition to being addicted, I just plain enjoy eating… most of the time. There have been a few exceptions, like when I eat salad because its good for me, but for the most part – I pretty much like food – especially bacon. Continue reading

[ANNUAL EVENT TITLE]

Focus v. 64-65418DB634-7AEB-48CF-BA11-CD62560F840D-672-00000204095CB40E

A few weeks ago I came across yet another prediction someone had made public regarding the end of the world. Apparently the world was supposed to end a couple weeks ago, sometime in September. Since I am writing this in October, I suspect that if this prediction came to pass it wasn’t nearly as big a deal as it was initially Continue reading
