  • Bible theme has little to do with man

    Several years ago while speaking to a group of about 70 people I was prompted to ask a question that had intrigued me for years: What is the central theme of the Bible?

    Because I wanted the answers to be individual and not a takeoff from someone else’s response, I had each person first write their response on an index card and then transfer their answers to large pieces of paper I’d hung at the front of the room.

  • Do you know whose inheritance you’re spending?

    Just the other day coming back from Lexington an RV passed me and on the back window was the familiar quote: “I’m spending my children’s inheritance!”

    It got me to thinking about our inheritance as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    You know that if you are a Bible-believing Christian you have two inheritances. The question for a believing Christian is “Whose inheritance are you spending?”

  • Practice for heaven during dinner with friends

    Generally when my friend Tara and I get together food is both talked about and consumed.

    I taught her my secret to amazing stir-fry vegetables (season them with onion powder and dried red chili flakes), and she introduced me to pad thai and satay at a Thai restaurant.

    Last Saturday, to celebrate her birthday, she and I and our husbands went to a seafood, prime rib and sushi buffet where we, as always, both talked about and consumed incredibly delicious food.

  • What happened to civility in conversation?

    The last time I was in an airport I picked up the book, ‘How to Talk to Anyone.’ It promised 92 little ‘tricks’ for big success in relationships.

    Because my job involves talking to people, or more importantly getting them to talk to me, I bought the book.

    The author, Leil Lowndes, also wrote ‘How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You.’ I think the author may have used some crossover material from her other book in this one because trick No. 3 is “How to use your eyes to make someone fall in love with you.”

  • Christ is the standard by which to live your life

    What ultimately provided the missing piece for the men referred to in our previous columns?

    That missing link for them hinged on two other very important words concerning the Lord Jesus Christ: prominent and pre-eminent.

    The meanings hidden in these two words seemed to throw the door of understanding wide open. Prominent communicates the idea of one among many. While pre-eminent means there is no one else or the one and only one.
