The famous actor Gregory Peck was once standing in line with a
friend, waiting for a table in a crowded Los Angeles restaurant. They had
been waiting for some time, the diners seemed to be taking their time
eating and new tables weren't opening up very fast. They weren't even
that close to the front of the line. Peck's friend became impatient, and
he said to Gregory Peck, "Why don't you tell the maitre d' who you

Seeing Others As We Should
A man dressed as Napoleon went to see a psychiatrist at the urging of his wife. "What's your problem?" the doctor asked.
"I have no problem," the man replied. "I'm one of the most famous people in the world. I have a great army behind me. I have all the money I'll ever need, and I live in great luxury."
"Then why are you here?"
"It's because of my wife," the man said. "She thinks she's Mrs. Smith."

Sacrificing His Son
After a few hymns, the preacher slowly stood up, walked over to the pulpit,
and gave a very brief introduction of his childhood friend. With that, an
elderly man stepped up to the pulpit to speak.
"A father, his son, and a friend of his son were sailing off the Pacific
Coast," he began, "when a fast approaching storm blocked any attempt to get
back to shore. The waves were so high, that even though the father was… Continue

I read the following story about how on one Sunday morning a usually long-winded pastor preached his shortest, but one of his most effective sermons ever.
He said, "My sermon this morning has three points.
"First, over three million people in the world today are homeless.
"Second, most of you don't give a d_ _ _.
"And third, it is a shame that more of you are upset by the fact that I said the word, 'd_ _ _', than by the fact that over three-million… Continue

Hearing from God,
"I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they… Continue

Jake asked her, "What are you up to?"

Tell Someone They're Valued

Glen, a teacher, realized this was a teachable moment about the importance of making people feel valued. He asked the class to imagine they were about to die and to write a note "telling someone how and why you appreciate them."
Sandy, who had a rocky relationship with her mother,… Continue

First Words of the Day A few years ago, a radio station ran a contest. Disc jockeys invited their listeners to tune in their clock radios. "Just for fun," they said, "when you wake up to the sound of FM-106, call and tell us the first words you spoke when you rolled out of bed. If you're the third caller, you'll win $106."
It didn't take long for the contest to grow in enthusiasm. The first morning, a buoyant disc jockey said, "Caller number… Continue

1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was… Continue

Had Lunch Yet?
Dr. Harold Urey, Nobel prize winner in Chemistry, was walking along a sidewalk one day when he ran into another professor. They chatted for a few minutes, then, as they parted, Dr. Urey asked the other, "John, which way was I going when I met you?" "That way," said the other, pointing. "Oh, good. That means I've already had my lunch," muttered the professor as he walked away.
I have to confess to being somewhat absent-minded myself. That's one of the advantages… Continue

Your Wreckage Can Be Repaired!

However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ
might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going
to believe on Him for everlasting life.

If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and they are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.

I wish I could say that I experience this peace all the time. I recognize that it is available for every believer today. I am like most believers in that I have my up and down days and experiences. There are times when the peace of… Continue

A poor man who lived in the country broke his leg in an accident...
That meant he was laid up for a long while, unable to work. His family was large and needed help.
Someone got up a prayer meeting at the church to pray for this family. While the people were praying and asking God to help the family, there was a loud knock on the church door. Someone tiptoed to the door, opened it, and there stood a young farm boy who said, "My dad could not attend the prayer… Continue
