War and Peace
We conclude our Odyssey through the seasons of life with two seasons that demand action from us. These two seasons will require all of the lessons we have learned from past seasons if we are to be successful in them. Our actions in these two seasons can drastically altar our lives and the lives of others around us. How? Find out below.
Love And Hate
There are no two words that contrast each other more than Love and Hate. They oppose each other in thinking, feeling and action and work to shape our perspective on everything we experience in life. Today, we look at when it is appropriate to express these powerful emotions and what results from their expression.
We last looked at the benefits of keeping silent. Today, we look at what happens when we get the opportunity to speak. When is it appropriate to open up our mouths and what benefits do we and others get from our utterances?
There are times when we need to speak out, to stand up for what we believe in and confess our faith. However, there are times when silence is necessary. We look at this concept today and how it can help us to progress in Christ.
We return to our A Time To Series with a look at what it means to rend and how that can actually draw us closer to God. Find out below.
Last week, we looked at the season of getting and how we are to pursue the things of God if we want to attain them. Today, we look at the other side of getting. Once we've attained what God has for us, what can we do to keep hold of it? What else in our lives is worth keeping? Find out below.
When we see the word get, we often think of receiving something. We get gifts at Christmas and on our birthday. In some businesses, we get a bonus around Christmas time. If our children have been good at school, they get a treat. While these opportunities to get require an action, they aren't hard to achieve. The term get in Ecclesiastes 3:6 has a different meaning, though. We find out it's meaning and what that means for us today.
Last time we looked at the season of embracing and how we need to take advantage of the opportunities God presents us. Today we turn our attention to the opposite of this season. When should we refrain from embracing things in life and how will that help us grow closer to God? Find out below.
We turn from the subject of stones and turn to embracing. This week we will look at the seasons in which we should embrace things and when we should refrain from embracing. For this subject, we are going to look at one section of the life of David in which he did both. How did his actions result in success in both instances? Find out
