What is Truth? – Pilate (John 18:38)

Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king? Jesus answered, You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What […]

Teach Them Diligently

We started in Deuteronomy 6:4 with loving God with all of our heart, soul, and might. From that love, we are commanded to write His words on our heart. With a love of God and the fullness of His word to guide us, the passage shifts the focus to the outward flow of this love- […]

God’s Word on our Hearts

When I observe the culture of our day, I see comfort and happiness dangled before us as the goal and measure of a successful life. I love comfort as much as the next guy, but as a follower of Christ I must honestly ask myself if seeking comfort and happiness is the path of the […]

The Importance of Character Development

We would all acknowledge that good character is something that can and should be developed. As parents we want good character for our children. But, why?
