    Pridefulness is NOT So Pretty!

    Note: All Scripture for this devotional is taken from the King James Bible The prideful person often thinks that everyone is looking at them with ardent admiration but in truth… Everyone is actually looking at the big ugly mark on their face. It’s called PRIDE! I recently taught the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican (Luke 18:9-14) in our 5th & 6th grade Sunday School class.  The Pharisee was of the religious sect among the Jews. They considered themselves pretty righteous and better than others. They looked rather great from the outside, after all, they followed some of the strict ceremonies and traditions of the elders. In this parable,…

    Sing and Rejoice Like You Mean It!

    All Scripture references are from the King James Bible Have you ever done a task and then realized shortly afterward that you didn’t know if you actually did it or not? I’ve done many routine household and personal tasks without being fully present. Haha! My mind was obviously daydreaming or on some other project needing to get done for the day. I love to sing in church, but anything we do repeatedly can become a little “robotic” in our functioning without realizing what words we’re really singing. Singing songs about God is truly a part of worshiping our Heavenly Father at church.   Psalm 150:1 says, “Praise ye the LORD.…

It is a popular verse, and you’ve probably read it several times in the past as well. To get a full glimpse of its context, we can look at the next couple of verses… “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency…

    CONFESSIONS OF a PASTOR’S WIFE, a MISSIONARY, AND a PREACHER’S KID

    This post is written by Trishia Crabtree and shared with her permission. I have never done this before in my life or have been so transparent, but here goes…Please wait until you have time to sit down to concentrate on this with a cup of coffee (or a Mt. Dew! 🙂 There have been several things that God has been dealing in my heart about recently.  My husband and daughter, Scott and Brooklynn, contracted Covid when they were in South Africa.  When Scott eventually came home after 36 days and one week of ICU, I noticed that something was different—he was a changed man. Not that he was bad before,…

    Giving the Gift of Love to Your Enemies

    This is a GUEST POST by Briana Parsons Matthew 5:44 says, “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” It’s not pleasant to think about, but everyone has enemies.  From small to old, weak and strong, we all have that one person who seems to make life miserable. That one person who causes our heart to ache. That one person we can hardly stand to look at, let alone think about. An enemy.  In looking at our verse, an enemy is defined in a strong’s concordance…
