True Colors

Last month, I shared a sermon series about generosity; and as I was preparing for the last sermon, something in the scripture hit me hard in my chest. In 2 Corinthians 8, The Apostle Paul was describing the generosity of the churches in Macedonia. There was a great need and the apostles were receiving relief … Continue reading True Colors

Thriller: An Argument Of Success

At over 32 million units sold, Michael Jackson's Thriller is by far the most successful recording in history. I just want that to sink in; after 35 years, no other record has sold more than this instant classic. It is the epitome of recorded music success, but at what point do we determine that it … Continue reading Thriller: An Argument Of Success

Back To Life

I hate to say it, but reality is relative. We all have our own variations of what is real and what is not, and we subsequently live in response to the reality we choose. Where there was once absolutes surrounding things as fundamental as gender identification, we now live in a culture where all those concrete … Continue reading Back To Life

This Is How We Do It

https://youtu.be/0hiUuL5uTKc   I was working for a parcel delivery company, years ago. I was the only one working at the time, because my wife had two toddlers and a new one on the way at home. All of my coworkers knew my situation, so one day, a young lady I worked with, pulled me to … Continue reading This Is How We Do It

Next Lifetime

https://youtu.be/H30lTFmW8a4?t=8s   Have you ever heard the saying "too heavenly minded, that you're no earthly good"? Well clichés are cliches for a reason, because this is a true statement. One of the greatest criticisms of the Christian faith is our preoccupation with heaven and what happens after we die. This fascination is particularly prevalent in … Continue reading Next Lifetime

California Love

https://youtu.be/5wBTdfAkqGU California is a unique place, and the people who live there (I believe) love to tell you where they are from. They are fully aware that there is no other place like California. California is a destination for millions of vacationers and dreamers, with bright lights and big cities in their eyes. However, those … Continue reading California Love

Mama Said Knock You Out

https://youtu.be/vimZj8HW0Kg I've heard it seen at time and time again. A parent will get down on their knee and look their small child in the eyes and say something to the effect of, "I ain't raising no punk. Now, don't you start a fight, but you better not let them run over you."   Growing … Continue reading Mama Said Knock You Out

Poison

https://youtu.be/sb2np1HGqxg?t=33s It is inevitable. Everyone is going to want something that they do not need. Not only that, but we will all at sometime want something that is bad, dangerous, or down right fatal for us. At some level, we are all fascinated with the excitement of thrills. Being daring and even cheating death is … Continue reading Poison

Passin’ Me By

https://youtu.be/QjsPG0Kspxo   I can remember as a kid in middle school, we would have the book fair. One of my favorite books to buy would be from the Where's Waldo series.  These books contained illustrations of the main character, a tall guy with a glaring red and white striped sweater, and large round specs, in … Continue reading Passin’ Me By

No Ordinary Love

https://youtu.be/_WcWHZc8s2I It really saddens me, that love has been reduced and devalued in such the way that it has. It's a word that we use so loosely, that it is no wonder that we have lost the truest sentiment of it. Love is in no wise ordinary. "Ordinary love" gives nothing, and seeks only to … Continue reading No Ordinary Love
