Work, Worship and Honor. Matthew 13.47-50
It was a warm day—hot even—when I met my friend at our nearby harbor. The water seemed to sparkle like dancing crystals in the sunshine, creating a sweet backdrop for meaningful conversation. Into our talk, “Donna” mentioned that she was not yet ready to retire,…

The Value of the Kingdom. Matthew 13.44-46
Dang, I love a good story! I love it when the guy gets his gal. I love it when the bad guy gets his come-uppance, and I like it even more when the bad guy gets remade into a good guy.

God’s Big Personality. Matthew 13.1-9
