Back in 2002 I flippantly bought one share of AAPL online for a mere twenty bucks. (Apple Computer stock.) Since then, AAPL has had two stock splits, one at 2-for-1, and more recently one at 7-for-1, when AAPL’s price had soared up above $700/share. Today, Apple has since become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, and … Read More

“Don’t rock the boat!” had become the philosophy of the elders and people of Israel after the time of Judges had begun. For the last forty years Israel had allowed the Philistines to run over them and ruin them without hardly putting up a fight.

On a normal weekday afternoon, I was playing with my daughter, Aubrey. We were probably putting a puzzle together, drawing castles, or playing dolls. Yeah, I’m willing to get down and play dolls with my daughters! While we were playing that afternoon, Aubrey taught me an important lesson. In the middle of our time together, … Read More

Just before the Lord Jesus ascended back to Heaven, He gave the Great Commission to His followers in that day and to all of us to take the whole Word to the whole world (Matthew 20:18-20).  The word “commission” means “an authoritative command.”  He was giving us His desire to be engaged in reaching all … Read More

I know what you’re thinking…”Something else on stewardship.” Well, not exactly. Please keep reading. We usually relate this phrase to robbing God of tithes and offerings (Malachi 3).
