Stop the Acceleration – May 23

At this present time, the car with the greatest acceleration speed in the world, is the supercharged Ultima Evolution Coup. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds given the right conditions. That is unbelievably fast! Have you ever noticed how an argument can accelerate under the right conditions? It can go from 0-60 very, very quickly. An argument is not something we typically want to see accelerate and we would rather it not take off at all. In the Bible, in the book of Proverbs there is some very practical wisdom that can be applied that can help you from keeping an argument form taking off. In Proverbs 15:1 it reads, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” The right response can stop an argument dead in its tracks.

Self-Sufficient – May 20

With the cost of living being so high with inflation I have noticed more and more people are striving to be self-sufficient. Seeking to grow their own food, generate their own energy, or work at a home office in order to not have to rely on having to travel daily. Being self-sufficient can be a very good thing, but not always. Some people think being self-sufficient, in relation to God, is a good thing. It is the idea of striving to be a good person, or at least better than other people, and by striving to be good that will make them right with God. The bible tells us for someone who is in relationship with God, being self-sufficient was not the way they got there. Ephesians 2:8-9 reads, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

Something To Look Forward To – May 18

In the article, 3 Things You Can Look Forward To, writer Remy Blumemfeld shares a story about a gentleman that he met whom seemed very fulfilled in life and he asked him what his secret was? The gentleman responded that his secret was very simple, he always has three things that he looks forward to – something in my work life, something in my personal life, and a holiday. This information is very helpful because being able to look ahead with excitement is extremely beneficial. Did you know that in the Bible it is made known that anyone whom knows Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior has something to look forward to that is literally mind boggling. In the book of 1 Corinthians it reads, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Having a BBQ – May 16

We are entering the season when some people are having, and a lot of people are planning on having a bbq. Barbequed steaks, hamburgers, chicken grilled with your favorite bbq sauce. Having a bbq is so enjoyable and then comes the best part, eating. The bible has some direction in relation to eating that is interesting to ponder. It reads in 1 Corinthians 10:31, Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. A question could be asked how do you do this? Well another passage sheds light on this, Acts 17:25 which reads, He gives to all life, breath, and all things. We can eat food to the glory of God by recognizing the very taste buds we have, that allow us to enjoy the food we eat, were designed by an awesome God. Something to ponder!

Getting Fixed – May 13

We have a chicken coup in our back yard that I built inside an existing shed. In order to add airflow I cut an 8 foot length of pipe to fit from the coup to the back of the shed. To install the pipe properly it had to be on a downward slant to allow for any condensation to drain out of the shed and away from the chicken coup. I was in a rush so I just eyed up where I thought the hole in the shed should go for the pipe. After I put the pipe in place, it did not look right, so I went and found my level to make sure. The level revealed I had been too rushed. The hole I had cut was too high and had to be lowered. The Bible is to act like a level in a person’s life. A person may think they measure up to God’s standard but we all fall short. Romans 3:23 reads… for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Thankfully Jesus provided a way this can be fixed.

Benefits of Drinking Coffee – May 11

For coffee lovers there was some encouraging information put out recently that came from three different studies. In an article put out by CNN health entitled, Drinking coffee could benefit your heart and help you live longer, it shared that according to three research abstracts drinking two to three cups of coffee daily has been associated with a ten to fifteen percent lower risk of getting heart disease, heart failure, or a heart rhythm, or dying early for any health related reason. Who would think coffee could be an aid in living longer. Did you know the Bible also has information that has to do with a means of not simply living longer but living eternally with God in heaven? John 3:16 reads, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

True Rest – May 9

Various studies have shown that people tend to be getting less sleep than they used to. In our modern society days are shorter, calendars are fuller, stress levels are higher. A lot of people face tossing and turning at night rather than a good night sleep. Physical rest is essential to our health and our ability to handle the challenges that we face each and every day. There are various practical aids that a person can implement such as avoiding blue light exposure in the evenings, eating properly, exercise. These are various helps and anyone who cannot sleep is seeking a solution. A solution each and everyone of us needs to find has to do with rest for our souls. In the Bible, in the book of Matthew 11:29 Jesus says this, Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Consider Your Ways – May 6

If you were to look up synonyms for the word ponder you would find such words as meditate, contemplate, muse, reflect. It can be something that we all struggle to do with all of the distractions that are around us. Sometimes we need to be told to stop and consider what is really important and the direction we are headed in life. In the Bible, in the book of Haggai it reads, “thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways! “You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.” The bible also gives direction on where to find real satisfaction. Jesus shares this in the book of John, I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Rescued from a Shark Bite – May 4

Recently a fisherman who was bitten by a shark near Bahamas was pulled to safety by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter after a crewmember tightened a tourniquet around his arm. Sean Connett, command duty officer at Coast Guard District 7 was quoted as saying, “This individual was fortunate a fellow crew member was able to render aid prior to the Coast Guard’s arrival which, allowed for a quick extraction from the vessel.” Due to the actions of another this individual was saved. Did you know the Bible makes it known that due to the actions of another you can be saved? John 3:16 reads, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Fallen Moose – May 2

Recently a moose had fallen through a large snow-covered window well and into the basement of a house in Colorado. Upon discovery, the home owners were left with a huge problem. How do you get a moose out of your basement? Police officers and fire fighters arrived on the scene and the only option was to have a number of people carry the large animal upstairs and released it outside. What a dilemma having to figure out how to remove a moose from one’s basement. There is a spiritual dilemma everyone faces that is of an infinitely more important manner. It has to do with the removal of one’s sin. In relation to having sorrow for one’s sins and seeking to turn from them through trusting in Jesus Christ as ones Savior 1 John 1:9 reads, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
