Ruth 1:16-17 – Praying through the Bible #81 – A Prayer that is a Family Promise

| August 29, 2013

Did you hear the joke about the mother-in-law? Apparently, neither did Ruth. In the little book bearing her name, there are no recorded prayers; but there is a prayer-like promise invoking God’s name. The story of Ruth is not about Ruth.

Matthew 7:12 – The Golden Rule

| August 31, 2010

1 Peter 3:7 – Men and Women Are Different

| September 18, 2009

            Men are different from women.  To us, this is nothing innovative, nor surprising, shocking or controversial.  Emotionally, mentally, physically, and biologically the sexes are different.  Ironically, our commonality is our dissimilarity.  Neither sex is inferior or superior to the other…just oddly opposite.  Poles apart like the North Pole and the South Pole. The poles […]
