“When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.” Genesis 3:6If you were ever a freshman in college, you may remember how cool you felt if an upperclassman showed some interest in you.T. J. Evans lived across the hall from me my freshman year. He was a self-assured upperclassman with that I've-got-it-all-together swagger in his walk. It didn't take long to…
“The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil . . . . It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.” James 3:6One morning when I was pulling out of our driveway on my way to work, I noticed that someone had thrown a beer can on our lawn. I picked it up, tossed it into our garbage can and drove away without giving it much thought.A little further down the road,…
If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. —Genesis 4:7I was delighted when a mutual friend gave my neighbor a Bible. But my neighbor told me she stopped reading it because she couldn't understand why God would be so unfair as to reject Cain's offering. “After all,” she said, “as a farmer, he simply brought to God what he…
Now we have received . . . the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. —1 Corinthians 2:12When it comes to communication, our world is becoming increasingly high-tech. The popularity of things like Twitter and Facebook might cause some to think the Bible is too old-school. The tech-savvy people of our world might feel deterred because there are no sounds and no nifty graphics in the Bible.…
“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15Most of us would like to be known by someone important—to have friends in high places. So being invited to the White House to meet President George W. Bush was a pretty exciting moment for me. As I waited for my turn to greet him, my mind raced to think…
“…Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” Colossians 2:3Here's some bad news: left to ourselves, we're not very good shots when it comes to living. We are, at the core, sinful, which explains why we lead such “ready-fire-aim” kind of lives. We are a lot like the village idiot who prided himself on being a great shot. After…
“You have forsaken your first love.” Revelation 2:4I must confess: I'm a romantic at heart, which means I love to hear stories of how people met and fell in love. What's more, I love to hear stories of how they stay in love! Unfortunately, you don't see too many 50th wedding anniversary celebrations these days.Take Barb and Bob, for…
“The fire will test the quality of each man's work” 1 Corinthians 3:13A few years ago, a series of fires raged through parts of southern California, fanned by the notorious Santa Ana winds. Laguna Hills, a posh, picture-perfect community set inland from the ocean, was hit especially hard. Flames jumped from house to house, fueled by cedar roof shingles. The fire consumed…
“Be careful that you do not forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt.” Deuteronomy 6:12We all have little slips in our memory once in a while, right? I love the story about the guy who decided to do something about his increasing forgetfulness. This poor chap decided to attend a seminar on how to increase his ability to remember things. And, to his great delight,…
“Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” 2 Corinthians 9:6It's interesting to me that Jesus taught more about money than any other subject. He consistently talked about the importance of generosity and the deadly danger of greed. To the man who asked Jesus to tell his brother to divide the inheritance with him, Jesus responded by warning, “Watch out!…
