MAY 26 "BIG BLEMISH ON DAVID'S LIFE"
     WE cannot speak enough about David. David is "the real deal".  He is not a Jew trying to practice his religion, he truly is  a man of God  and has a genuine relationship with Jehovah.  "Is there still anyone left of the house of Saul to whom I can show...

MAY 25 "IMPERFECT LEADER...NO WAY?!"
     Are you being led by an imperfect leader? If you are, then welcome to the rest of The Church of Jesus Christ; for we are all being led by an imperfect leader.  The heart of a leader is what matters, not his perfect tract record in decision making.  Dav...

MAY 24 "A NEW COMMAND?"
     JESUS is going to be leaving his disciples, I'm sure that brought allot of thoughts to his mind about what was best to address with his disciples.  In Jesus' absence, what would need to be addressed? With this going through his mind, this is what Jesus...

MAY 23 "TOO MUCH DRAMA!"
     This is a sad story (in the O.T.) about two leaders who do not have their heads screwed on straight. It leads to the senseless death of many; and if that's not bad enough, the drama continues years after this horrible incident. Years later when Abner d...

MAY 22 "THAT VOICE WAS SO COOL!"
  The Voice was for you! “the wow effect” is normally for the crowd that you don’t want to be identified with. Jesus is quick to tell them, “the whole voice thing, that was for you…not for me”.  We would say, “You mean that’s not the way it normally is? God...

MAY 20 "BI-POLAR CHRISTIANITY"
     I just finished remarking in my mind, about how spiritual and in tune David is with God until I begin to read the next paragraph and then I'm forced to take it back. One thing that cannot be overemphasized about David is how truly righteous he is and w...

MAY 19 "TRYING TO PROVE YOU'RE ALRIGHT? DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!
 WE have two instances of relationships gone bad in just one reading. The first part we read about David and Saul and in the latter half we read about David and Abigail. David has the perfect scenario he needs to convince Saul that he is not malicious; and ...

MAY 18 "JESUS STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU"
I will be the last person to stand up the religious folks, especially the Pharisees, but it must have been hard to look at some man standing in front of you, claiming to be "The Son of God", miracles or not. I have seen miracles happen but never began to lo...

MAY 17 "OH, WHEN LIFE WAS SIMPLE"
Our reading today says,   "Then they kissed each other and wept together— but David wept the most."    I would imagine David wept the most.  David's life used to be simple. He had a family, he had a job that he loved, he had peace and quiet times out in the...
