Guidelines For Living with Harold Sala and Bonnie Sala


How to Achieve True Wealth

Friday, February 15, 2019

Harold Sala and Bonnie Sala

For the individual who believed that his giving was a strictly private matter—between only God and himself, a lot of what Jesus said when He was on Earth must have been rather disturbing.  Author Randy Alcorn says that about 15% of everything that Jesus said has to do with your possessions and what you do with them. So why was what Jesus said so disconcerting to people?  Repeatedly he urged people—not to give money to Him personally--but rather to give to the poor and needy, and thereby have treasure in heaven.


The One Thing You Need to Say Everyday - Thursday, February 14, 2019

Have you ever been to a party where they played the “Newlywed Game?”  The emcee separates the men and women and then asks them the same questions independently, then compares answers to see how nearly they say the same thing. 

The Best Way to Show You Care - Wednesday, February 13, 2019

There's a problem which is quite common these days which afflicts people and does a great deal of damage to relationships.  Primarily, though not exclusively, men suffer from this disorder; however, quite often children and teenagers are also afflicted by it.  I define the malady as the PADD syndrome. Never hear of it?  PADD is an acronym for a condition I describe as the Periodic Amnesia and Deafness Deficiency(PADD) syndrome.

Why Do People End Up Marrying Jerks? - Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do people end up marrying jerks?"  I'm talking about a situation where a person has married someone who is totally undeserving of the other, someone who treats the other person disrespectfully, or is in no way an equal.  It happens.  Marry in haste and repent in leisure, goes the old saying.

The One Skill We All Need - Monday, February 11, 2019

In spite of the fact that he lived with an unhappy marriage himself, the English author Charles Dickens understood the importance of communication.  He wrote, "Never close your lips to him to whom you have opened your heart!" Dickens realized that communication is the key to real love, but is that the only reason to learn communication skills? Not at all. 

Where to Go When You Fail - Friday, February 8, 2019

He cheated his brother out of his inheritance.  He deceived his father into giving him the inheritance which, by right of birth, should have gone to his brother Esau.  He lied to his father-in-law about the size of his flocks, yet he is venerated as the third of the patriarchs--remember Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?  And the writers of Scripture in several places refer to God as "the God of Jacob."  God, however, saw beyond the character defects which I've just mentioned.  He saw his heart. 

Why Some People Won't Like You - Thursday, February 7, 2019

Certain smells can have powerful effects on us and there’s a billion-dollar global aromatherapy market to prove it.  Smells trigger memories, no matter how many years have passed since that fragrance first made contact with your nose—a perfume that makes you think of an old romance or a stale, musty smell that reminds you of your first apartment. Certain odors trigger emotional responses, both positive and negative. 

Is God Still Running the World? - Wednesday, February 6, 2019

A lot of intelligent, well‑meaning folks have been asking themselves just what part God plays in the affairs of life today. When they see what is happening in the Middle East, Moscow, Beijing or Washington, they wonder who is really running the world.  At first glance, they are prone to think that God may have created the world and then left it to mortals to run.

How to Hear God's Voice in the Midst of Life - Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Jim Warren, like thousands of other people, believed in God. In fact, he went to church--not every Sunday, but most Sundays.  He was good man.  He worked hard to support his family.  He was faithful to his wife, Ruth, and occasionally took his boys fishing. Jim really didn't need God. He had too many other good things going for him.

How Far Away is God? - Monday, February 4, 2019

How far away is God?  Tough question, right?  Even pondering an answer brings us a host of other questions.  How do you measure distance between us and God--miles or kilometers as we measure distance?  Or should we measure distance in terms of light years as scientists measure the distance between us and the heavenly bodies?
