Heart And Hearth
A man's home is his castle, so the saying goes. Many think, that to be a king, is to have fine clothes, wear a crown upon your head, live in a castle, have power and authority, etc. Yet I know people who live in castles, have fine clothes, etc., and I can tell you, it doesn't fill their hearts with deep, abiding joy. There is only one, true desire of every human heart, we all share, which is to be filled with absolute love, peace,... Read more

Actions Speak Louder Than Words
I volunteer at a local, community food garden, which stands in the grounds of a local church. Yet we see only an odd one or two from that church, helping out in the garden. With the Lord's help, I solved a problem with the irrigation, that had been plaguing them for some time, and it was such a simple solution. The guy in charge said to me, "You must be pleased with yourself!" I answered him, "To my way of thinking, all the bright... Read more

Loving Is Caring
In my second marriage, I had a stepson who was very rebellious and was diagnosed with ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). Though those of us who know and understand the true nature of things, know the true cause behind it, the Sinful, Instinctual Nature, that fills the mind with dark thoughts that have their Source In Negativity (SIN). He got into trouble with the police and drugs, etc. and one day, when I was trying to get through to... Read more

True Love Is Sometimes Tough
"Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword." Matthew 10:34 It never ceases to amaze me, just how lukewarm the halfway house (church) is, and how all the lukewarm fencesitters, are content to just sit there, going around and around in circles, with one foot in the kingdom and one in the world, wanting the best of both, and are too governed and ruled by their sinful, instinctual nature...

Who's The Best Judge Of Character?
You may know every word in "the book" of words and think you know all its mysteries. Yet that doesn't mean your name is in His book of eternal life and that you know the plot to the whole story and the greatest mystery of all, God's divine nature of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love. You may call it the kingdom of God, but to those who DWELL in His eternal presence, realm and reality, it's known as the Image-Nation of Absolute... Read more

Clothes Don't Make The Man
Perhaps you've seen the movie "King Ralph", starring John Goodman. Hmmm.... how appropriate that name is. God sure works in mysterious, round about ways. If you haven't, it's all about a down on his luck Las Vegas entertainer, who after the entire royal family is wiped out in a freak accident, becomes the king of England. Yet naturally, Ralph had no idea what it means to be a royal. Like everyone else in the world, who only looks at... Read more

All Talk And No Action
The parable of the fig tree is about the lukewarm, self-righteous, legalistic and religious lip servants. The fig tree is a person, who is full of all the words from the pages (leaves) of the book (knows all the scriptures), yet bears no fruit. For the fruit, is the characteristic virtuousness (righteousness) of God's divine nature of absolute, true love. They know all the "right" words and love to climb upon their soapbox and preach...

LOYALTY

Virtue of the Week

LOYALTY

lion-like characteristic

Loyalty is staying true. It is standing up for something you believe in without wavering. It is being faithful to your family, community, friends or ideals, when the going gets tough as well as when things are going well. With loyalty, you build relationships that last forever.

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.Proverbs 17:17
