A Road Sign For Christ

Road signs are essential for us in our travels. They tell us the city or town we are in, what road we are on, the safe speed to travel on the road, and warn us of upcoming hazards. Ultimately, road signs inform us of information that is necessary for us to reach our destination. In the same manner, I wonder …

A Lifelong Prayer

I remember hearing a story about a boy who prayed every night before he went to bed. He was tired from the long day and crawled into his warm and comfy bed. Like many of us, I’m sure, he fell asleep before he came to the “Amen” part. He mentioned this to his mother because he was so troubled and …

Two Birds With One Stone

Growing up I remember the phrase, “kill two birds with one stone”. I never really figured out why I would want to kill one bird let alone two at one time. I did, however, figure out that this phrase was actually stating that it is better to be able to accomplish two tasks with one action. Think about it…what if …

Taking off the shoes of the fool and walking in the shoes of wisdom.

There are two types of people in the world, wise and foolish. I have done some pretty foolish things in my life. One of the most memorable was starting a fire in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We had taken the youth group on a campout, and the next morning they were apparently super hungry. Once half of the …

God’s Presence Revealed

A young boy was peering out the window one autumn day. He looked out across the empty field to a line of trees. He noticed that the still and lifeless trees began to move. They swayed left and right. Next, he saw beautiful colored leaves leave their branches and sore through the sky like an airplane and land in the …

Mom had left me at home alone while she took my sister down the road to school. I was sitting there watching cartoons when I heard the …

Command, Example, Command, and Thermometer

This week, the week of Valentine’s Day, we have been looking at different aspects of love. Yesterday as we looked deeper into John 3:16, the love verse, I told you that I have become a student of repetition in the Bible. It fascinates me that God’s love for us would compel Him to repeat Himself in the same manner that …

The Love Verse

There is one verse that is the most recognizable verse in the Bible. This same verse is the most quoted verse of the Bible. For most of us, this verse was probably the first Bible verse we memorized. Of course, I am talking about John 3:16. A few weeks back, I asked my youth group students if they could tell …

All of these are found on our blog The Mid-Day Motivator at praise963.com. In closing, yesterday I …

Love Defined

Yesterday our Mid-Day Motivator was titled “Works Without Love.” We discussed how Paul was saying that we could do many good things, but if we did them without love in our hearts, we profit nothing. Today, we shift our focus to the actual definition of love. In today’s society, we can say I love you to someone and the next …
