Candles

Posted by Rebecca Spence on

I’ve been counting candles for three days. Thousands of candles. There is white wax smeared into my carpet and peppering my cat, who insists on sleeping under my feet. Why, you ask? Because, it’s my second choice. God does funny things. My first choice was medicine. After a couple...

After Perfect

Posted by Ian Crosby on

I’m one of those people who loves the idea of eating healthy and getting more in shape. I love the idea of it. I love making a plan. I love scheduling out how it will go. But here’s my issue: the moment the plan gets messed up, I’m done. If I go to bed too late and don’t...

The Morning Drinker

Posted by Chelsea Fore on

One morning last spring, I got up early to go on a run. As I was walking down the hall of my apartment complex, I passed a woman. I only noticed her because of her sunken cheekbones underneath pale skin, her sunken eyes staring straight ahead, and her dirty sweats just barely clinging to her...

A Test of Faith

Posted by on

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” &mdash...

Posted by Laci Jackson on

In 2016, my debit card was stolen. If this has happened to you, join me in a moment of silence for all the time you lost sorting that business out. As if feeling violated isn’t enough, you also have to endure the headache that is updating your brand-new, shiny card number at the countless...

No Sacrifice

Posted by Paul McDill on

And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he was reclining at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head. There were some who said to themselves indignantly, “Why was the...

Treasure

Posted by Luke Bedford on

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. — Matthew 6:21 Jesus is right in the middle of what is known as The Sermon on the Mount when he speaks these words about treasure. The surrounding verses are speaking about storing up treasures in heaven, and how it is impossible...

More For What?

Posted by Joey Hensley on

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so...

Celebration

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Have you ever actually read the laws surrounding tithes? They are found in Deuteronomy 14:22–29. For the most part, they are exactly what you would expect: bring a tenth of all you produce to the place God has set aside (i.e., your church). That’s what you expect, right? Everyone...
