    SUMMER IN THE SON: Happy are the Persecuted
    The beatitudes of Jesus teach us that living a life that honors Him will  result in persecution, and that persecution of this nature is an honor and a joy.  This clearly goes counter to everything we know and believe in the flesh.  It is only with the aid of God that we will be able to embrace this kind of suffering with joy and experience the kind of happiness Jesus speaks of.

    DESIGNER HOMES: Teenager in the House
    Being a teenager can be an awkward time for both teenagers and their parents.  No longer a child and not yet an adult, but having become essentially adult in body creates sizable challenges for the contemporary family.

    Man in the Mirror
    While considering all the questionable and shady characters surrounding the crucifixion of Jesus we must be willing to take a long, hard look in the mirror.  It was our sin, as much as their, that put Jesus on the  cross.

    The competition for your  time and family is intense.  Beyond your own salvation, there is NOTHING more important than successfully passing to the next generation the baton of faith.  Nothing else compares.   Since this is true, it is important to make the most important thing the most important  thing.

    STAND: A Royal Affair
    Series: Stand
    Taking a stand against immorality in the culture is a difficult stand to take, especially when you are confronting the king or the president of a country.  You might even lose your head.  Such was the case for John the Baptist, whose ministry didn't end, in all likelihood, as he envisioned it would.  After all, he was the forerunner of the Messiah. Matthew 14:1-12; Mark 6:14-29

    Outrage is a clear marker of our age.  People are quick to get angry over the least provocation.  How is a Christian to respond?  How can a believer stand both courageously and winsomely against bullies, tyrants, the angry and the hateful?

    TRAINING IN GODLINESS: The Joy of Giving
    I don't particularly enjoy going to the gym, but i go because I want to get stronger/healthier. I don't really get much joy out of it. Giving can often be like this, we know that we should be doing it but it feels like a struggle. Why should we be generous? How can we truly discover the joy of giving?

    BE LIKE JESUS: Humility
    Humility is a very noble characteristic to possess and has become increasingly rare in our current culture. When someone lacks humility it can be painfully obvious but defining it can be trickier. So, what is humility, and how can we cultivate it in our own lives? Let's all enjoy a nice helping of humble pie.

    BE LIKE JESUS: Self-Control
    Self-control. We all probably cringe a little at the thought of discussing this topic. We are reminded of how much we lack self-control in so many areas of our lives. Even people with no connection to church see the value in possessing this characteristic. So, why it is so difficult to master, where have we gone wrong in respect to self-control and how can we allow God to produce it in our lives?
