  • Keep an ‘eye on the prize’

    As a youngster, I grew up on what is known as a “hill” farm in western Kentucky. When I was five, I was unceremoniously dumped on my grandparents who had already raised six children of their own, and surely did not need another mouth to feed. We were poor and I had to work. Our only source of income was selling milk to the old Pet Milk Company. I had no exposure to church, but I always had an awareness that there is a God.

  • Ten Commandments are not suggestions from God

    If you are lost in the woods, why is a compass an essential tool? The needle on the compass always points true north, and if you know that safety or shelter are south, you know which direction to travel, and that can keep you from getting completely lost and possibly putting your life at risk.

    An airplane pilot will tell you that if the compass on his plane is off by a couple of degrees, he can miss his destination by 100 miles.
