Wide-Path Walkers

"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God."Colossians 3:1-3 I'm pondering… Continue reading Wide-Path Walkers

Those who fall into a pattern of hearing the truth without obeying the truth are in a dangerous position. The more light we have, the more accountable we are for how we live.

The Beauty of Smallness

"If you must choose between Bible and breakfast, choose Bible, and grab an energy bar. Then plan better. Man shall not live by bread alone." John Piper This really made me chuckle, but if you know anything about John Piper, he is not kidding about that breakfast bar. He wrote an entire book about not wasting your… Continue reading The Beauty of Smallness

Leaving The Mall

I had to run an errand yesterday at the mall. Needless to say... it was not pleasant. The sheer number of people out on a Tuesday afternoon was baffling. I saw folks doing the 'grab and go' in stores, hoping that whatever gift they were hastily purchasing would suffice. One lady snatched up four big… Continue reading Leaving The Mall

Baby Tigers and False Peace

"Is it even possible to live a holy Christian life? The kind of life we talk about and aspire to, but seem to fall short of on a daily basis?"

For The Simple Folk

Rejecting and Reinterpreting

Hustling Ourselves To Death

"Are we really this empty?" I find myself asking that question a lot lately. Check the trending headlines or your social media and you'll see it: we are a culture grasping at straws for the next¬†thing to come and soothe us, define us, entertain us or empower us. If you aren't "hustling", you're not getting… Continue reading Hustling Ourselves To Death

Thieves of Liberty

"Where is the life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?" TS Eliot The Information Age. It's our blessing and our curse. I often joke I was born into the wrong era because I don't always love everything that… Continue reading Thieves of Liberty

Cheers To The Simple Things

Are you starting to get a little excited for a new year? I know, we are knee deep in Christmas right now, but December goes by faster than any other month whether we want it to or not. Maybe I'm not supposed to admit this, but I always look forward to the post-Christmas cleaning of… Continue reading Cheers To The Simple Things
