'Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life' from Tom Kelley

Ignominy. According to the Random House Dictionary of the English Language it means, "disgrace, dishonor, public contempt."

Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost for His Highest"
Is He Really Lord?

Joy means the perfect fulfilment of that for which I was created and regenerated, not the successful doing of a thing. The joy Our Lord had lay in doing what the Father sent Him to do, and He says - "As My Father hath sent Me, even so am I sending you." Have I received a ministry from the Lord? If so, I have to…… — (click here to read more)

O Lord, I am oppressed; undertake for me. Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Adar 14'

It was a most difficult time for our people. Large numbers of Jews had fled after the destruction of the Temple in 586 b.c.e. to a more friendly place—Persia (modern-day Iran).

Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life
Into the Middle of it

Many, many years ago I used to play football. Almost sounds like a fairy tale doesn't it? But I did. I was a wide receiver for a football team.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Love creating love

Although the love of God is clearly laid out in the Old Testament, why did humankind have to wait so long to have the message spelled out in such clear terms as John uses: God is love?

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen

Mourn - This word (pentheo) is almost always associated with death. Nothing speaks to the human condition more than the grief and loss of death. No wonder the Jews had professional mourners.
