In the Presence of God

It sounds like a made-up story, but it is true. Some years ago a church in Carter County, Tennessee had an attorney draw up a deed for their property. He wrote the deed naming The Lord God Almighty as the owner. That was fine until some years later the church wanted to sell the property…

Complainers……

When Daniel Webster wanted to give a person the impression that he remembered him, but could not recall his name or where they had met before, he would ask, “Well, how is the old complaint?” And nine times out of ten this worked. The person would begin to unfold some grievance that he had discussed…

Worship in the wilderness.

There is a beautiful old story told of the American president Abraham Lincoln. I can only imagine what a heavy schedule of appointments President Lincoln had to keep day after day. Yet when an elderly woman with no official business in mind asked to see him, he graciously consented. As she entered Lincoln’s office, he…

Crossing the Red Sea

Woody Allen in addressing a Harvard graduation said, “You have entered a crossroads of life. Down one road is despondency and despair.. down the other road is total annihilation. I sure hope you make the right choice.” Now, I’m confident that Woody Allen was being humorous but he was describing how many people feel sometimes….

The Final Plague

The 10 Plagues of Egypt from the Book of Exodus is one of the most well-known events from the Bible. At this point in the story, Israel has been held in slavery for many years in Egypt. God raised up Moses to go to Pharaoh and say, let my people go. Pharaoh hardened his heart…

In The Hand of God

A neighbor noticed a small boy from the house next door running around the block. He had seen the boy pass by four or five times. Knowing that the child was too small to be a jogger, he stopped him and asked, “Son, What are you doing? I have noticed you running around the block…

Exodus, The Journey from slvery to freedom!

Imagine you’re taking a walk on a lonely hillside on a hot summer day. A scrubby bush catches fire, but instead of burning up it keeps on burning! It grabs your attention and you think, “What’s going on here? The burning bush was a striking, unforgettable sign and experience; even at the very end of…

Confidence

Several years ago Dr. Daniel Boorstin, the librarian of the Librarian of Congress, displayed for a TV show a little blue box from a small closet that once held the library’s rarities. The label on the box read: CONTENTS OF THE PRESIDENT’S POCKETS ON THE NIGHT OF APRIL 14, 1865. Had that been any other…

The Truth

Winston Churchill said, “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.” That may be a common response to truth, but that attitude no doubt sets us on the road to tragedy and destruction. There is no way to love and follow God…
