Wild Oats
by C. David McKirachan
Psalm 25:1-9

I don’t know about you but my youth was full of sin. Not the ones that make up the terrible ten, but the terrible two, the ones on which hang all the law and the prophets.


Wesley T. Runk
Jesus entered the temple courts, and, while he was teaching, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him. “By what authority are you doing these things?” they asked. “And who gave you this authority?”

Emphasis Preaching Journal

How many times are we told that “God has a plan”? A plan for your life. A plan for this earth. A plan for our nation. The trick, of course, is to align ourselves with God’s plan. We need to know God’s will. And as soon as we know what God’s will is, we have to follow it.

Exodus 17:1-7
When I encounter a chronic complainer -- and we all know at least one (or maybe sometimes are one) -- I think about the Israelites and their willingness to go back into slavery rather than move forward toward where God wants to set them free. Granted we all need water and I know they’re thirsty, but there are better things than wishing for slavery.

The Village Shepherd

We've had a variety of filter jugs over the years. They are all based on the same principle, a chemical centre which removes any impurities from the tap water passing through it. Some have been electrical, removing any effort whatsoever, and some have been manual, requiring just a little more effort to fill the jug. They have all produced delicious water which makes very good tea.

So, what do you think?

When Jesus told the parable about the father with two sons to its original audience, they were already squirming after his earlier question to them about John the Baptist. He didn't say to them, "Here's an easy answer." He said, "Here's a hard question!" A hard question in the form of a simple story -- a parable. "What do you think?"

So, what do you think? I don't mean them. I mean you.
