  • I have always been amazed at John’s explanation and description of Jesus in the opening verses of John’s gospel. Chapter I:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

The traffic is heavier, you run the risk of getting stuck behind a school bus, and you’re cursing yourself for not leaving your house 15 minutes earlier. By Friday you’ll have the hang of it, but for now take a deep breath.

  • There is a great story about a man that had many sheep. His sheep were thriving and healthy except for one big problem. His property was also occupied by many coyotes that had developed a taste for sheep.

    Now the man thought of all his options. He could get a gun and kill the coyotes. This would help the sheep, but not so good for the coyotes. He could trap the coyotes, and put them in cages, but that wouldn’t change the coyotes. They would just be trapped and at the first opportunity if released, they are going for some lamb chops.
