Pray for Greater Love

Pray for Greater Love

One of the most productive things we can do to pursue a life beyond amazing is to read Paul’s prayers for the churches he was involved with. He didn’t pray for greater attendance, bigger offerings, or even more people becoming Christians. When we examine his prayers, we discover something far more challenging. For instance, to

A Life of Endurance

  Heavy weights, lifted fewer times in succession, produce greater strength. Lighter weights, lifted with more repetitions, produce greater endurance.   Every morning when I’m home in San Diego, I go to a gym to work out with a trainer. His name is Todd Durkin, and he’s one of the best trainers in the country

Peace: God’s Ultimate Goal

God’s ultimate goal for humanity is for peace to blanket the earth. His Son, Jesus Christ, was called the “Prince of Peace” by Isaiah the prophet (Isaiah 9:6).

Through All The Seasons. . . God Is Loving and Powerful

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 — Why has this passage endured the ages as one of the oldest philosophical poems in our literary canon? It’s certainly among the most pensive passages of God’s Word, a beautiful meditation that casts a near-hypnotic spell over readers of any generation. The author was the wisest and wealthiest man who ever lived, and

Life Is Short: Enjoy It!

How do we enjoy life? Each Day Totally We do not know how long we have to live, so we should live every day with gusto. Oh, how sweet the light of day, And how wonderful to live in the sunshine! Even if you live a long time, don’t take a single day for granted. Take delight

Mourning Is a Better Teacher than Feasting

Better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, For that is the end of all men; And the living will take it to heart. Sorrow is better than laughter, For by a sad countenance the heart is made better. The heart of the wise is in the house

Find the Strength You Need in the New Year

Find the Strength You Need in the New Year

I’ve always been a high-energy person. When I was a boy my mother often said, “David Paul, where do you get all that energy?” — not in admiration, but in frustrated exhaustion. In high school, I sang in the choir, played in the band, played baseball and basketball, and ran track. I went to college
