Look at Me, Child

Details: Little girls like this typically don’t receive an education. They grow up caring for siblings or working from a tender age. This girl will sort through mountains of trash to find rags and plastic bottles. She is told this is her duty, and perhaps her next life might be better. I’ve seen poverty. I’ve walked through slums before.

When Nothing's Going Right

Details: A spiritual battle is raging around us and because of that, life can be hard. While saying yes to God does bring blessing, it’s not easy. If our desire for obedience is born merely out of duty, we may be quick to give up. Especially when everything in life seems to be going haywire. However, if our desire is born out of delight, out of a love

Over and over again in his letters, Paul refers to these three traits as valuable in God’s Kingdom.

Why God Told Shepherds First

Details: Two reasons come to mind when I ponder that question. First, shepherds had the capacity to be humbled and amazed that God chose them to hear the news. Imagine how unworthy they must have felt, but how honored. Based on Jesus’ opinion of the religious leaders of that day, I don’t think they would have had the same reaction.
