President’s Ponderings 3.1

Creation is amazing! “The heavens declare” God’s “glory” and “handiwork” (Ps 19:1). Nature reveals His power, wisdom, and greatness. Nature makes the invisible One, visible; even His Godhead is evident. In the end, no one can say, “God, I didn’t know about You!” Judgment Day will be “No Excuse Day” (Rom 1:18-20).

President’s Ponderings 2.2

A wise English proverb says, “Timing is everything.” While its origin is unknown, most have used the proverb, and all have experienced its reality.

A Resolution to Grow

The start of a new year is a great time to make resolutions to change and grow. It has come to symbolize a fresh-start, and the beginning of this new stretch of 365 days seems to give us a stronger resolve and motivation to achieve the changes and growth we desire. Resolutions typically have the same goal: self-improvement. It is common to hear about dieting plans, exercise programs, intellectual pursuits, etc. In church, it is common to hear Christians resolve to evangelize more, pray more, and read through the Bible.

Harvesters

I recently heard a story about a farmer that was diagnosed with terminal cancer which prevented him from doing his job. In an effort to help his family, the farmer’s neighbors all banded together to harvest his fields in time for winter. Despite the massiveness of his fields, his neighbors were able to harvest and complete the work for winter all in 10 hours! Continue reading >>
