Winning the Respect of Others

15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. (1 Peter 2:15) One of my favorite Christian athletes is Mike “Pinball” Clemons. Clemons played for the 1987 Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL (predominantly as a punt returner), however his greatest success came as a Toronto Argonaut […]

Be a Shining Light

Matthew 5: 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. I am a huge fan of soccer (known as football in most places in the world), so I enjoyed following the 2018 World Cup held in Russia.  While the soccer played on the […]

A Good Name

Ecclesiastes 7:1 A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth. The book of Ecclesiastes was written by King Solomon near the end of his life.  Going back many years (1 Kings 3:4-15), after King David’s death, Solomon had recently taken over the kingdom. God appeared […]

Though They Accuse You…

1 Peter 2:12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. In the 1920’s Eric Liddell was one of the greatest 100m sprinters Scotland had ever produced.  By 1924, the Olympic year, the country was in […]

Is your Candle Even Burning?

Matthew 5:  14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. God-willing, if I’m still able to move with some agility at 70, I expect I will still have competitive juices flowing in my veins and at least my mind will have difficulty letting someone run past me with […]

A Light on the Hill

Matthew 5:14-16  “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may […]
