Unlocking Parables

Jesus, I don’t know how you did it. You told stories that bounced off the hearts of those who didn’t trust you and soaked into the hearts of those who did. The same story. Each person hears his own version. Ten people witness the same event. Each tells a different version of what happened. Go deeper: Ask each person to …

God Means What He Says

God carefully chooses his words. Don’t twist scripture around to make it say what you want to hear, but listen to what he’s telling us. Stay with facts and truth.

Jesus, Calm the Storm

Crossing a lake was just an ordinary event back then, as common as taking a trip to the mall today. But on the way to the mall, we hit black ice.

Become the Least

Most arguments I’ve witnessed or been involved in leave the original issue behind and become a power struggle to see who wins. Translation: “Who’s the greatest?” Then the “greatest” person gets their way. Sometimes the winner doesn’t bring the best ideas, and we don’t get the best results.
