A Reminder To Remember

Oliver Wendell Holmes (1841-1935) is regarded as one of the greatest Supreme Court Justices of all time. However, the highly respected Judge was said to be a bit absent-minded.

Once Justice Holmes was riding a train when the Conductor began walking down the car, checking tickets. As he approached Holmes he saw him searching his wallet, unable to find his ticket. Frustrated, Holmes then checked each of his pockets. Still no ticket. Continue reading

Don’t Forget About Your Kids

A Tampa toddler died Monday after her “very busy” father forgot about her and left the 18-month-old little girl in his jeep for hours.

The story made national headlines after the child was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

A Passage To Ponder: 2Peter 1:3-11

 

It is easy to think that people like the apostle Peter had an advantage over us today because they saw Jesus. Talked with him. Walked with Him. And learned from him.

However, in this passage, Peter pens that we, too, can be “partakers of the divine nature.” Through the knowledge of Jesus Christ we can enjoy a special relationship with Him. Fellowship and partnership with the Divine is possible when we become Christians.

This text tells us how. Continue reading

Word of the Week: Resolute

Today in Washington D.C. there is no Columbus Day. The D.C. Council voted to replace it with Indigenous Peoples’ Day. It’s a temporary move they hope to make permanent.

Be Nice To Those With Whom You Disagree

 

Ellen DeGeneres, the comedian, and talk show host has been at the center of a raging controversy all week.

DeGeneres was photographed last Sunday at a Dallas Cowboys football game sitting in the owner’s box with former President George W. Bush.

The Power of a Good Example

“Matty Lovo is a Hero,” the headline read.

I googled it. And it’s a true story. It happened 12 years ago when Matty was just 9 years old and saved his father’s life.

Matty’s dad, Matty Lovo, Sr, a semi-tractor-trailer driver, was hauling lumber through St. Helens, Oregon, when he had a seizure and lost consciousness. The semi veered into oncoming traffic. Stuck a utility pole. And seemed destined for a tragic accident. Continue reading
