Finding Ruth

I am currently reading a commentary on Ruth by Iain M. Duguid, it has been really interesting and challenging so far. One of these challenges was to find the Ruths in our lives. Ruth was a foreigner, an outsider, a stranger. Our lives are filled with people like this, people that we don’t even notice because we are so busy, wrapped up in our own worlds. I challenged myself to […]

Giving Your Time To God

I was reading Joshua 24:14,15 this morning, and it got me thinking about how I was living and how much of my life was being lived for God. We have a choice to follow Christ, if we choose to, then it has to be whole-heartedly! It is a fulltime commitment.

Just Bring Yourself

It still amazes me how I can read the same passage in the Bible and every time find something new that I hadn’t seen before.  This morning I was reading the story of when Jesus fed the five thousand (John 6 vs 1-15). I was wowed by how Jesus took the five loaves and two fish and fed thousands of people. It struck me that when Jesus asks us to […]
