Admit it.  It chaps you.  You don’t like it any more than I do.  When wicked people “get away” with it – it burns you up.  And yet it seems to happen every day.  We have even set the sentiment in stone when we say, “nice guys finish last.”  We expect the good guy to get burned.  We sing, “I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken,” and we want to believe it, but sometimes we wonder.  Why do the wicke...  Read More

The first question of the Westminster Catechism asks, “What is the chief end of man?”  The answer, “To glorify God and enjoy Him forever.”  The apostle Paul calls on the believers in Corinth to glorify God in all that they do.  Repeatedly in the Scripture we are called upon to give praise, glory and honor to our God.  This is at the heart of worship.  Worship is our natural response to the greatne...  Read More

This Sunday, May 12, is Mother’s Day.  That is a day for recognizing and showing appreciation for our moms.  Evangelist Billy Sunday perhaps overstated the matter when he declared, “Give a boy a godly mother and any old stick will do for a dad,” but it is hard to overestimate the worth of a godly mother.  I am forever grateful for the mother the Lord gave to me.  I’m grateful for her unfailing lov...  Read More
