Eager, yet meager

"For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. 'Why have we fasted,' they …

A day of reckoning

We've all been taunted, insulted, or outright offended at one point or another in our lives. For some, this goes on too long and brings despair, or doubt, into the forefront of our minds and we cave, believing lies that we're told and living as though they're the truth. For others, we hang on to …

The Truth doesn’t tickle

With God, majority doesn't always rule. Even when we're enticed by hundreds, or thousands, to make decisions based on approval in numbers, it only takes one to represent the truth.

Unable unless enabled

Ever tried, repeatedly, to convey something to someone, but fail to get through to them? To communicate a truth, at least as far as we're concerned, that doesn't seem to be heard or understood by those listening? Perhaps intentionally searching for different angles of approach, in desperate hope that eventually what is being said, will …
