Kidnapped (Eph 6:1-4) [Part 2]

If you don’t believe this culture is crazy, I have three words that will change your mind…Lady Ga-Ga!  If you don’t know who she is, you are not missing anything but if you do, you know this culture is crazy! Last week we shared with you our text scriptures from Ephesians 6:1-4: “Children, obey your…

Kidnapped (Eph 6:1-4)

Have you ever had an abscessed tooth?  If you have, you know there is almost an unlimited amount of pain!  Conversely, here in the Nashville area, we have a modern dental facility called “Dental Bliss”.  This high-dollar organization makes dental work seem almost like a vacation.  They have a spa and massage on the premises…

Nuggets to Change Your World! (2 Timothy 2:5)

The Bible tells us, “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much” (Luke 16:10).  If I asked all of you how many of you desire a better future than you have today…every single one of you…

Puppies, Ice Cream, and Football (Part 4)

God does not need a great economy to bless His children!  Gas prices look like they could be headed to $5 or more!  The jobs and housing market appear to be a long way away from full recovery.  However, the Bible tells us in Psalm 37:19, “They shall not be ashamed in the evil time:…

Puppies, Ice Cream, and Football (Part 3)

A pastor who was going through a pivotal building program in his church received some very bad news.  He was told the project had been underestimated and now it would cost $500,000 more than originally planned.  On top of that, his regular organ player was out sick.  This was doubly bad as the pastor had…

Puppies, Ice Cream, and Football (Part 2)

At times, I can be easily distracted!  For example, if I somehow get roped into shopping with my wife…I can be easily distracted if I see that football is on in the electronic section of the store.  Money can be a sensitive topic so I figured if I can just distract you with puppies, ice…

Puppies, Ice Cream, and Football! (Part 1)

What’s not to like?  Everybody likes either puppies, ice cream or football!  I simply wanted to distract you for a moment with something that you like, so we can talk about something that you may not like…your finances. The last couple of years have been quite “challenging” economically.  You haven’t been paying attention if this…
