“Kill” Them with Kindness

“Kill” Them with Kindness

Romans 12 has a unique standing for me.  Before I deployed, my sister was going to get my name with a yellow ribbon license plate for her truck. Ashby and I had been doing our Bible study and just read through Romans once before. It was about our enemies.  I needed some perspective and Romans 12 delivered.  17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far…

Covers It All

Covers It All

From Romans 8: 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Dying is scary. Living forever? Actually….equally scary. It sends some weird shiver through the body. This bothered me for a LONG time. Then…I had a revelation. 1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.  Please note the last 3 words.  Read them again. Prior to being married, I was in Fort Benning, GA at Infantry…

A Father’s Perspective

A Father’s Perspective

My Dad used to say “you have no idea just how much I love you.”. And he was right…..until I became a father. By becoming a Dad myself I learned a harsh truth. I could never love my Dad as much as he loved me.  (And to be clear I love my Dad very much) There is something about parental love that is overwhelming. I love my girls and son as much as I could imagine loving any person. This…
