Matthew 14:23 It’s important to set time aside to put your priorities together and focus on the essentials of life. Essentials like family. It’s never too late to mend relationships with your parents or siblings or children. Don’t die with broken relationships.
Ephesians 3:2-5 The Bible contains the secrets our Heavenly Father knows and little by little as you read His book, the more the secrets are revealed.
Matthew 25:37-42 God’s judgment isn’t something we like to think about—it’s much easier to focus on His other attributes like love, compassion, and grace. But the Bible has a lot to say about God's judgment. From the Old Testament to the New, God has never winked at sin.
Romans 8:35 God takes full responsibility for you. He loves you and there’s nothing He wouldn’t do for you—He proved that by sending His Son.
Romans 8:28 We are surrounded by insurmountable opportunities. The problem is, they're often disguised as impossible situations.
Psalms 119:105 God’s Word equips us to handle the stuff that comes our way in life. And when we let His Word penetrate our hearts, it changes us and we become more like Christ.
Matthew 24:3-8, 24:36 We all want to know where we’re going and we’ve wanted to know since Jesus walked the earth. But the exact date of Christ’s return is not information that we’ve been given. However, the Bible says that we’re living in the last days. So while we don’t know when Christ will return, we are to be ready.
Proverbs 22:11 Negativity is all around us, but it is possible to rise above it. The key? Grace. Grace changes our attitudes, and makes an incredible difference in our relationships. Grace will give you a "yes face."
Psalms 144:12 Some days you just can’t win. You feel distant from your kids when you want to be close and no matter how hard you try you fear you’re only passing bad traits—instead of the good ones. Sometimes the lyrics of a song express accurately the attitudes of the heart better than anything else.
Proverbs 3:5-7 For all you parents worrying about your kids at summer camp, take heart—this letter is fictitious. But sometimes we’re not unlike Scoutmaster Walt—when we don’t follow God’s instruction manual we lose our way.
Matthew 7:13-14 Like the frog in the beaker, we don't realize our small compromises are destroying our lives until we're faced with the consequences of our wrong choices.
John 4:6-10 Whether we admit it or not, prejudice is something we all battle. Human beings are so innately prejudice we constantly create divisions where there are none. Thankfully, prejudice can be overcome with grace. Where grace exists, there is no barrier.
1 Corinthians 11:1 It doesn’t matter how old they get, or how many parenting books you read…kids still fight. Sibling rivalry is here to stay—our need isn't to get rid of it, but to know how to deal with it. And that is where the Bible comes in handy.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Here is a great story of reconciliation. It beautifully illustrates how broken relationships can be restored by building bridges to one another…instead of fencing each other off.
Psalms 31:24 You’re not very far along in life before you struggle with tough questions. It’s at times like this we really need hope.
