HIGHER THINKING

 “Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.” Colossians 3:1-2 Dr. Robert Schuller was known as the pastor of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove California, a mega church before mega churches were even considered possible.

“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him.

One friend of mine has seen it so many times that he almost has every line in the movie memorized. Secretariat, a race horse that overcame incredible odds, set race horse records that still stand to this day, and in his time, he inspired Americans and the world with his tenacity to press on toward the finish line, often leaving his[…]

DIVINE RECEIPT

“I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.”  Mark 11:23 Walmart is doing their best to win the battle for the online shopper. They realize the sophisticated shopper wants to avoid the inconvenience of shopping and goes to the store only when necessary. So, Walmart has created what it calls the “Pickup Tower” and it’s pretty cool. When I saw one in our local store, my first thought[…]
