“Realizations” by Josh Robinson

by ArnoldCoC

In this world in which we live, crazy things are happening. There is talk of race, love, marriage, right, wrong, polls, and politicians. One thing I don’t hear a lot of though is God’s word. God has settled the matter for so many of these issues. We are to treat all men as equals. Marriage is between one man and one woman for life, and homosexuality has always been condemned. That doesn’t mean that Christians hate folks, or engage in hate speech. To the contrary, we love everyone (as we are commanded), and like God, we desire for all men to go to Heaven. We don’t speak hate, we speak for the Lord, using His words (not our own) to take love and light to the world.

“Discipline” by Dan Curry

Memories of childhood abound in my mind when I hear the word “discipline”. I know that I deserved the punishment meted out by my parents when I misbehaved. I did not like it, but it was really for “my own good”. Well, that was what my Father told me many, many times.

In recent reading of a book about the great Mississippi flood of 1927, I was impressed by the mindset of people who, though the mighty river had been at flood stage for several weeks and more rain was falling, continued to resist telling the truth about the danger that threatened the citizens of the lower Mississippi Valley. Public officials, levee commissioners, newspaper editors, and leading citizens proclaimed, “All is well,” right up till the dikes burst and disaster reigned.
