God is the same—always. That means He is faithful even when we are not. In the case of disciples on the Sea of Galilee, their faith flunked the test. Your faith will fail at times as well. But fear not. God’s love for you is constant. He will remain faithful!
The world doesn’t owe any of us a living. We need to get out and work! The Bible warns us in many places that laziness is wrong and people who continue that way are doomed to failure. On the other hand, those who are diligent and seek God’s wisdom will work hard and reap the benefits of a life that is pleasing to God.
Treat others like you want them to treat you.“And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them”(Luke 6:31-NIV). This is known as the Golden Rule. Most folks have heard this even if they don’t recognize it as Scripture.
American society has become increasingly less civil. There is a noticeable lack of kindness and respect during normal interactions among people. The evidence is everywhere— while driving, in grocery stores, at work, on social media websites, in the news, etc.
Remember two things. First, God has never needed a majority to accomplish His will. Frequently He has called individual men and women to lead, especially during dark and desperate times. Second, we have God on our side. He rules. He will carry out His plans.
