God Wine

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

I’ve never been into wine. I mean, I’ve tried it. And I’d like to tell you I have such a refined palette that I can taste the subtle flavors, like oakiness and smokiness, but it’s all expired cough syrup to me. I know, I’m uncultured swine. Many have said that I...

Playing God

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Now that I think about it, there’s a very real possibility that I love to be in control. Several years ago, I played a computer game called The Sims. If you’ve never heard of it, basically, with just a mouse and a keyboard, you’re able to quite literally play God and control...

Get Your Priorities Straight

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Has anyone ever told you, “You need to get your priorities straight”? Not a fun piece of advice, but, if we’re honest, it’s usually true. Unfortunately, we live in a society that seems to be pushing us down a different path: the...

Let There Be Life

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

I’ve worked at many places over the years where pranks were a pretty common occurrence. And, while there were some pretty complicated long cons, my favorite was one of the more simple ones. Simple, yet elegant. It involved a very realistic-looking rubber snake and some fishing line tied to...

When Prejudice Gets In The Way

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

The word “prejudice” gets thrown around a lot these days. At its core, it’s the idea that someone would make a negative snap judgment about someone else before they really know them. Maybe it’s an assumption about who that person is based on their race, nationality, the...

Choosing Ignorance

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Ignorance is a funny thing. If you have it, you usually don’t know you have it. That’s the ignorance of ignorance. But maybe you’ve come face to face with your own ignorance before. A moment where everyone else knew a piece of information but you didn’t, so you showed up...

The Insignificant Ones

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

We can see the miraculous touch of Jesus on display throughout the gospel. How an encounter with him would change everything — in an instant. Lepers, blind men, the bleeding woman, they were completely transformed by a touch. John described Jesus like this: In him was life, and the life...

Words For Battle

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

When I was a kid in church, I remember this song we used to sing. I mostly remember it because the chorus seemed to repeat on a loop over and over. It went something like this: Standing, standing, Standing on the promises of God my Savior! Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises...

The Reset Button

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

As a culture, we love post-apocalyptic movies, don’t we? I mean, how many movie trailers start off with a desaturated camera pan across a deserted wasteland in the not-so-distant future? I always thought we were just so scared of the end of the world as we know it, that we kept playing it...

More Than A Prophet

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

When I was a little kid, I loved exploring the world for hidden treasures. My best friend and I would search through overgrown fields, thorny wood thickets, and even damp sewers (Not a whole lot of treasures down there!) in search of cool artifacts. Mostly, our treasures consisted of...
