Matthew 6:1 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.

Matthew 5:48 “48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” “That’s perfect!”  Parents say that of a child’s artwork, we say that of a good cup of coffee or a sandwich.  When we say these words we mean it meets our approval.  In this scripture we feel at times that … Continue reading

Monday January 26, 2015 “Be Blameless”

Matthew 5:48 “48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Noah, Job and Abraham in their day were people we could say were blameless or perfect as Jesus said in this verse.  This perfection is to allow God’s work of love in us to accomplish His will in the world.  … Continue reading

Matthew 5:42 “42 Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.” The saying goes way back yet it speaks to us of generosity and being blessed we bless.  One of the things that has made America what it is today is our personal and collective … Continue reading

Thursday January 22, 2015 “The Extra Mile”

Matthew 5:41 “41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.” The first mile renders to Caesar what is his.  The second mile renders to God what is God’s.  You see a Roman soldier could command man or beast to carry his 60-80 lb. pack for a mile.  Jesus says, “Do two … Continue reading
