Shine

Recently, the Leverings got all bundled up and went to see some Christmas lights.  As we ventured from display to display, we observed that there are clearly three types of Christmas light attitudes: Scrooge: These homes are totally void of any Christmas festivity.  Not even a Festivus pole.  They are the homes with no lights,…

Death Warning

DEATH WARNING Recently a KYB viewer asked “Does God have a way of warning us when we are about to die?” My answer was that although God did warn a few people that their time was up, it isn’t His usual practice. I pointed out that God does provide us a “general” warning in Psalm…

The Card

When I arrived home yesterday evening, there was a stack of mail on the table. I thumbed through it and saw a bright red envelope that was addressed to me. I pulled it out and after opening the envelope, I gently pulled out the card with a beautiful   sparkly Bethlehem scene on the front. It…

Quality Revelation

Recently I wrote a brief “article” in an email to youth group parents pertaining to the importance of being dedicated to God’s Word at home. Although I originally wrote it in response to a Wednesday night class of disengaged and disinterested teens, I later decided that perhaps the overall message of that “article” could benefit…

On Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving isn’t just a holiday; it’s an attitude we should practice every day. As our nation pauses to give thanks, I encourage you to consider these thoughts on thankfulness and gratitude. “God has promised to supply all our needs. What we don’t have now, we don’t need now.” – Elizabeth Elliot “In happy moments, PRAISE…

UnBlessings

How thankful are you? I’m guessing if you had to, you could quickly make a list of 100 things that you are thankful for.  But, are you grateful for all things or just the good things?  Are you appreciative in all circumstances or just when things are going well?  Like the Thanksgiving holiday, most of…

KYB is a Great Investment

If you listen to much radio or watch much TV you constantly hear about the BEST EVER way to invest for the future.  Buy some gold, buy an annuity, play the stock market… or never buy gold, never buy annuities, and get out of the stock market.  It is admittedly a bit confusing.  A fellow…

A Frightening World

The current political climate has triggered memories in me of my teen years when we lived in Jordan. It was during the time when it was obvious that war was imminent and the signs of fear were everywhere. I remember the nights of putting blankets over all our windows for mock air raids. I remember…

Run to the Cry

It’s two o’clock in the morning. The darkness outside has grown thick throughout the night, and our neighborhood streets have become calm. Our house is quiet and still, while Kayla and I lay peacefully sleeping in bed (probably dreaming every young parent’s favorite dream – the one about getting to take a nap). Suddenly, we’re…

Turn Your Enemies Into Friends

In the Does God Exist journal I recently ran across a great true-to-life parable top article. Former Boston Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs used to hate going to Yankee Stadium, not because of the intense rivalry between the teams, but because of a fan. Apparently this guy had a box seat close to the…
