  • I’ve recently discovered the secret to getting rid of internal turmoil and stress — I’ve stopped listening to news talk radio and political talking heads shows on TV.
    Instead, I listen to my iPod — music and podcasts of sermons and science, food and history. It’s amazing how my inner agitation and anxiety has gone way down, and I haven’t missed a thing. I still know what’s going on in the world — I do work for a newspaper — without having to endure all the yelling.

  • Why did Jesus heal the sick and perform exorcisms? In one sense, we could rightly say that Jesus healed the sick and cast out demons because of his compassion.
    Matthew 14:14 says, “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.”
    That is certainly one reason why Jesus healed. But the main motivation in scripture given for why Jesus healed the sick, cast out demons or performed any kind of miracle was to reveal something about who he was.
