When God gives us children, He entrusts to our care little eternal beings. Each one of them will spend eternity in either heaven or in hell. There is an unparalleled sobriety that rightly accompanies such delegated responsibility. We often fail to properly prioritize our responsibilities. Our jobs are not eternal; our houses are not eternal; our cars are not eternal; our bank accounts are not eternal; our health is not eternal; but, our children are eternal. The time that we have with them is short. God only gives them so many years in our homes. It is for this reason that God charges Christian parents to take seriously His call for us to spiritually instruct, nurture, admonish, discipline, protect, provide for, prepare and bring our children up to be among those who will know, love, fear and follow the Triune God (Eph. 6:1-4). 


When you are part of a church for any length of time, you inevitably experience the ups and downs of church life. There are many disappointments, sorrows, and griefs to endure. At times, it is tempting to give up all together.


What a joy and privilege to think that believing men and women who have worshipped here on earth now do so in a much more glorious and enhanced manner now in Heaven. With such deaths as these, our hearts and minds should be rightly set on Heaven.


In both Luke and Acts, the beloved physician gives us what he believed to have been the most wondrous details about the ministry of the Savior and about his ministry through his disciples. In both books, Luke gives us repeated nuggets of truth captured in somewhat pithy statements.


We live in a world bombarded by foolish speculation, inane cliches, and triviality. As a consequence, the expression of true wisdom is rare and in short supply today.
