Wisdom for Healthy Relationships

It takes less time, effort, equipment, and planning to remove a small tree than it does a large one. A sapling is easier to cut down than a mighty oak tree. Several years ago, Loretta and I lived on a point overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks. The view was great. However, the view straightContinue reading “Wisdom for Healthy Relationships”

How to Eliminate Frustration

There are several causes for frustration, but the greatest cause that I have ever encountered is having more people to see, more meetings to attend, more decisions to make, more places to go, more sermons to write, more classes to teach, and more buildings to build than I have time for.

The Bible says Jesus entered the holy place not made with hands. Remember when God told Moses to build the tabernacle inContinue reading “A Physical Copy of the Spiritual”
