Why Are You So Angry?

The LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?” — Genesis 4:6 The first sin recorded for us in the Bible outside of the garden of Eden is the sin of Cain killing his brother, Abel. We’re told that Abel kept the f locks and Cain worked the soil (Genesis 4:2). In time, both men brought an offering to the Lord. While we’re not told all the details, we learn that the Lord looked with favor on Abel’s offering but not Cain’s....

“One Another” Commands

Scripture has a lot to say about how we should treat each other. In fact, the New Testament contains nearly forty verses of relational instructions, all containing the telling phrase “one another.” These “one another” commands in Scripture tell us how we are or are not to treat each other! Scripture is serious about relationships and how they are to play out. Let’s peruse a few of these “one another” verses (I’ve included all of them at the...

Laced with Grace

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. — Proverbs 16:24 I am such a Bible nerd. Not only do I love to learn the meaning behind the Hebrew or Greek words in Scripture, but I like to study certain English words that pop up at me, pogo-stick style, to find out why a particular word or phrase is used. And so I grew curious one day. Why does God use a honeycomb to describe gracious, sweet, and healing speech? I...

Get Your Gifts for Mom! (…and Yourself)

Editor’s note: Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I don’t know about your mama, but mine is challenging to buy for! She doesn’t want anything fancy, or expensive. She doesn’t want a massage, she doesn’t need much, and she’s completely content with a painted-glitter-macaroni necklace from the kids. She’s been given gobs of flowers, bubble bath, and squishy slippers… When pressed...

Settle My Soul: Martha Martha

You know the drill. When retiring for the night, you have every aim that tomorrow you will carve out time to meet with Jesus. You envision an early morning summit alone with the Lord — Bible wide open — joined only by perhaps a helpful devotional book and a steaming mug of something hot. It is the stuff great Instagram photos are made of. However, the next morning reality sets in, clearing the screen of your good intentions. The alarm rings....

You Were Meant to Thrive

You were meant to do more than just survive. You were meant to thrive. You were not meant to struggle to make it through the week, the day, the next hour. You were not meant for your world to feel like a weight, for the break of dawn to be the starter pistol for another meaningless rat race. You were not meant to be shackled by anxiety, worry, and fear. No, you were meant for so much more. You were meant to have life and to have it more...

The Secret of Every Passionate Marriage

As a marriage counselor, I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard a disgruntled husbands or wives utter the words, “I just don’t love her [him] anymore.” And as they say those words, it is as if they are waving a white flag in surrender.

The Good Dad: A Call to Sacrifice

Picking up a Ken doll and playing with your daughter and her Barbie Dreamhouse sounds, well, just about as unmanly as you can get. It’s not much like extinguishing a fire that very well might burn down the entire Grand Canyon. But to me, the willingness to grab that Ken doll and play with your daughter for a while lies at the heart of true manhood. Look in the Bible and you’ll find that love, the secret to fatherhood, often gets explicitly...
