The slanderer tries to injure someone’s reputation or character by false & defamatory statements. The action or CRIME of making false spoken statements damaging to a person’s reputation.
People love to talk about other people, especially if it’s bad. Hollywood makes a huge dollar from gossip. People pay for dirt. Be honest, if the news was always positive, would you read it or listen to it? Most of us wouldn’t – including myself. God hates the news media because he hates liars…Continue

from Matthew 13.47-50 Is work just work, or something far greater?
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. Case in point, evil serial killer David Berkowitz, aka Son of Sam who came to trust and follow Jesus Christ.1 Indeed Jesus’ parable about how a little yeast can change the entire composition of a mound of dough just…

Have you ever been devastated because of the words that came out of someone’s mouth? How about someone who you thought was a dear friend? I’m sure we all have & I’m also sure we’ve also said the words that did the damage. If you never have, you are perfect. James 3:2 says we all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
Gossip is probably the biggest destroyer of all time. It’s deadlier than the…Continue

In the end, truth wins. Matthew 13.24-30; 38-43
My mama, who was kinda' old when I was born1, used some antiquated words that found their way into my vocabulary. Like the word 'tarry'. She would say, 'Go ahead and go, but don't tarry!' In other words, 'get right back, don't delay, or I'll worry'. I also took a page out of her book with words she did not say that she believed a lady should not utter, certainly not a Christian lady. The words were not necessarily swear words,…Continue

A week ago during Sunday mass, I ask God to provide to me the best for my daughter. I ask for more finances so I can give the best for my wife and daughter. I am financially stable, have a great job, and am able to provide the needs of my family but I asked for more from our Lord.
The night of the same day, my wife and I had a very heated argument which snowballed into a very difficult marital problem. During the course of our argument, I failed God and questioned Him if what…Continue

God’s Big Personality. Matthew 13.1-9
The other day in “What do you want—really?” I asked you what you really wanted in order to believe. The hyper-religious Jews had asked Jesus for another sign, remember? Jesus had already done various sorts of miracles, he had taught in the temple, synagogues, in-doors and out-of-doors, to small gatherings and large ones—all, so that folks could hear the message of his Father in Heaven. He taught that they might know,…
