A Covenant With My Eyes

In category:

Eyes

We tend to blame others for our problems. To excuse our own bad attitudes or our selfishness we will blame our parents, “That’s just how I was raised!” To excuse our laziness and lack of a work ethic we will blame our background, “I come from a poor family.” To excuse our performance on the job and, therefore, our lack of advancement, we blame the company, “They’re prejudiced against me because I’m...”

No Accounting Needed

In category:

Account Book

Accounting departments exist for a very good reason: Without them it would be very difficult for businesses to operate. The accountants keep track of how much a firm owes to others. They pay the bills. They look after the accounts of those who owe the company money. They inform the decision makers in the company whether there is enough cash on hand to implement their strategies or whether it will be necessary to borrow money. They advise about investments.

Accountants have another extremely important function: They audit companies to make sure that their financial reports are accurate. They act as guardians or watchdogs to make sure that a company’s officers are not lying to the owners or clients about the financial health of the company. They also make sure that nobody is stealing from the company.

They Will Neither Harm Nor Destroy

In category:

A Ruined City

There is no question that we live in a world which is torn apart by violence. Everywhere we look, people are at one another’s throats. Revolution, insurrection, uprisings, war and civil war seem to be the order of the day.

Unfortunately, war and revolution are not something new. Read any history book and you will discover that our past is steeped in blood. There are very few, if any, periods of history without fighting or bloodshed somewhere in the world. The impulse to fight, make war and impose our will on others – even by force – seems to be part of mankind’s nature. In the twentieth century alone, scores of millions died at the hands of their fellow human beings.

Let Him Contend For Himself

In category:

An Idol

During an age when moral degeneracy and idol worship was everywhere, God told a man to take a stand for the truth. He instructed him to destroy the idol his own father had built and worshiped. The man obeyed. He tore down the idol and burned it, but he did it at night because he was afraid of what the other residents of the town would do to him if they found out.

The man’s fears were justified. The other men of the town became extremely angry when they saw their idol burnt and destroyed. They investigated and soon discovered who had done it. When they found out, they wanted to kill the man – even though he had acted on God’s orders.

Is There A Doctor In The House?

In category:

A Child Who Needs Medical Care

To a certain degree we all have a difficult time accepting other people who are not just like us. When we encounter people from a different background or a different culture, we tend to think that they are odd or strange. Seldom do we entertain the idea that we might be the strange or odd ones.

Often times, this idea that people who are different from us are odd is also accompanied by fear. We fear the unknown and, since we do not understand the other culture or background, we become afraid of people who are different than we are. Unfortunately, to compensate for our own insecurities and fears, we may start to ridicule the other person or begin to despise them. This can lead to racism and even hate. We seldom stop to think that we may be as objectionable to them as they are to us.

Freedom For What?

In category:

Fat Man

We all desire freedom. We do not like it when others try to control our lives. We don’t like it when someone tries to force their opinion on us – we want the freedom to make up our own mind. Even worse is when someone tries to tell us what to do when we have not asked their advice – we do not like busybodies.

The same desire for freedom also holds true for society in general. When laws become too oppressive or interfere too much, without providing benefits to compensate, people become restless and dissatisfied. If governments go too far in trying to control people, they spark rebellion. Throughout history people have led many revolutions to gain freedom.

They Did Not Inquire

In category:

Question Mark

Have you ever been in a situation where you thought you knew all the facts? You made a decision based on what you thought you knew only to find out later that the truth was not what you thought it was. If you had known, you would have made a different decision than you did.

The Israelites once found themselves in this very situation. After He rescued them from slavery in Egypt, God told the Israelites not to make any treaties with the people in the land to which He was leading them. The Israelites took this instruction seriously. They did not offer to make treaties with any of the peoples they encountered in the new land God gave them.

Don’t Fall!

In category:

Don't Fall!

Have you ever said, “I would never do that!” only to find yourself later doing the very thing you said you would never do? Why do we behave in ways which are contrary to our given word?

There may be several reasons we end up doing what we said we would not do. One is that we lied. We did not speak from conviction, but rather to mislead or to please the person to whom we were talking. For example, if our friends consider a particular action wrong, or even just silly, we might agree with them so they won’t think less of us. However, we have no intention of giving up doing what they don’t approve of.

Be The Man In The Gap!

In category:

Broken Walls

“Why don’t they do something about it?” How many times have we said or thought those words when we see public property which needs repair or hear about an injustice! We become especially upset with situations which impact us directly. It is one thing to read about shopkeepers with dishonest scales. It is another thing entirely when we are the one who has been cheated. It is one thing to hear about a judge taking bribes. It is very personal when we are the one who is denied justice. “They ought to do something!”

A Fully Committed Heart

In category:

Mt. Ranier

What is our reaction when we hear unwelcome news – particularly a message which highlights a mistake we have made or a character flaw in ourselves? Unfortunately, instead of humbly listening to the message and correcting the problem, we often lash out in anger.

There was once a king who thought he knew better than God. Oh, he didn’t start out that way. In fact, at first he led his kingdom in a spiritual revival. He purged the land of idols and urged his people to worship God. Because he sought God and worshiped Him, God blessed the kingdom with prosperity. God also gave the king victory over powerful enemy armies. (You can read the story in 2 Chronicles, chapters 15 and 16.)
