Do we sometimes enter into conversations ready for combat, when others actually need to see us as someone who can help show them the way to be rescued?
The Bible is a great book, whether we read it spontaneously, or study it carefully. I encourage you to mix some of both practices into your Bible-reading.
In the book of Philippians, a delivery person is a hero. Who knows - we may be called to carry good things to others in Jesus' name, as well.
There aren't many free things in life - and some we wouldn't take if they were free. However, God's wisdom is available for the taking. Will we accept it?
Just as there is a point in the countdown of a rocket launch when the takeoff is imminent, God makes a commitment to those who accept Jesus, even before we receive our eternal reward.
Let us make the furthering of the Kingdom of God a celebration (no matter who is introducing people to Jesus), and not a competition.
Although many verses of the Bible are valuable on their own, sometimes we need to read and study more of the Bible at a time.
If other people can't help but listen to us if we are persistent enough, how much more will a God who loves us hear our requests?
When we think that we know it all, we are deceiving ourselves, and miss out on a chance for God to teach us.
The fact that you were created uniquely means that your exact role in life can't be replaced by anyone else.
Although the results don't always happen right away, if we live according to God's direction, we can expect positive results eventually.
What if the famous battle between David and Goliath had been set in a video game?
No matter how we psych ourselves up, we can only be assured of success if we somehow know that we're on the team that will win in the end.
