No one likes a tattletale, chime the playground kids. Mob bosses tailor concrete boots for rats. “Snitches get stitches,” as the saying goes. When it comes to our sinful secrets, there is no doubt that we loathe them being divulged, and those that spill them win the Oscar of betrayal, an unforgiveable award. However, a […]

There is something special about a mother’s gift, especially her first gift. As is common, a mom often gives her newborn some keepsake gift. She crochets a blanket, buys a cool mobile to go over the crib, or hangs a picture on the wall. Even though the baby is just going to spit up on […]

Like it or not, our present lives cannot escape what is trending. Whether it is a kitten on a piano or a drone strike in Iraq, our smartphones bombard us with trends. Many of these last as long as a snowflake on a warm windshield, tickling us briefly only to melt away. One of these […]

The honeymoon, at least proverbially, is one of the best of times. It is when Cinderella's happily-ever-after meets a beach in Bermuda. The flavors of the food sing higher notes. Your fabrics feel softer. The days crawl by with laughter and the constant touch of your new spouse. Upon the white sand, you gaze into […]

When you are surrounded by people speaking another language, it can be a bit intimidating. The foreign language may ring beautiful like an Italian opera or scratch like fingers on a chalkboard. But if you do not understand the language, it all sounds muddled, like Charlie Brown's teacher. Languages are the walls that outline the […]

Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning" (Ps. 30:5). On the chilly nights of our pilgrimage, this promise’for which David praises the Lord’is an electric blanket for our faith. With it, the Lord assures us that his faithfulness endures forever and that his mercies are new every morning. Yet, when […]

Why is it that medical professionals seem particularly apt at the skill of underestimation? With that horse needle in hand, they say, "You will just feel a little prick." That little prick feels like a Bowie knife. The "gentle" scrubbing of your cut tears like a belt-sander. You bite your tongue trying to be tough, […]

If you are opening up a new business nowadays, soft openings are a common way to go. With this soft opening, you can work out the kinks and begin building some hype. Then after a few months, the grand opening extravaganza explodes with sales and balloons. The soft opening gives the business time to get […]

You're pregnant! It's a boy!" This is one of the sweetest reports a woman can receive in her life. The notice that she is going to be a mother, to have a child of her own, is a potent joy. These tidings were like angels singing to Eve after Abel was stolen from her. It […]

Are you good at waiting? Is sitting in traffic or standing in line like a hammer to your thumb, making you want to scream? Historically, humans haven't been known for their ability to wait patiently, but our society treats this virtue as an infectious virus—something to be vaccinated against and eradicated. If you have to […]

What does your sin deserve? As Christians, we know our sin deserves punishment. It is displeasing to God. Yet how does our Lord really perceive it? What does his justice actually require? On the slopes of Sinai, we saw glimpses of glory in that sapphire pavement. We beheld an impression of paradise, of what it […]

There was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes" (Judg. 21:25). This is the opening song playing as the curtain is drawn back on 1 Samuel. Who will be the king that Israel truly needs? The people are on stage first. Saul’a tall, regal GQ model’receives the People's Choice […]

Even though few of us have ever worked with sheep, the line "sheep without a shepherd" resonates for all of us. A scene flashes before our mind's eye of kids on a playground with no adults: it's Lord of the Flies. So it was this imagined scene that frosted Moses' mind when God told him […]
