Going to church could be deadly if it does not translate into heart change and care for those around us.
Sometimes we will go to extremes to help those we care about, dispensing with propriety and fueling faith.
Immersed in the busy here and now taking care of our own things it is easy to forget our destination and our obligation to others.
Remembering is a noble, sometimes painful endeavor. Memorial Day gives opportunity to celebrate the lives of lost loved ones and heroes who sacrificed themselves for our free lifestyle. For me, it is a struggle to know how best to spark remembrance.
Jesus’ prescribed response to offenses and sins against me can make me into a lustrous pearl instead of a shriveled rock.
