Walking Too Fast to Talk - #6869
If you're married or if you're in love, the woman you love needs time to be heard. When a woman isn't heard, she starts to talk louder, and longer, and more often. And she nags because she's not been heard. That time with her needs to be a deliberate choice you make, a sacrificial choice, "I'm all yours, Honey, and I'm yours for a while." That kind of love will create a home that is a caring place, safe place for the man who lives there.
He's Never Lost a Rescue - #6792
For you - for those you love - isn't it great to know that Christ rescues you from the death sentence of sin, and that He has never lost a rescue?
Emotional Clearasil - #6790
When a woman feels like royalty, she starts to act like it. You won't change her by nagging, and yelling, ignoring her, name-calling, being harsh with her, attacking her, criticizing her. In fact, all you will probably do is delay the change. You change your wife as Christ changes us. And how does He do it? By patient, attentive, self-sacrificing, dying on a cross love.
Three Words On Your Bill - #6747
A man I know stamped three incredible words on a huge debt, and Jesus wants to stamp those words on your bill with God: "Paid In Full." You don't ever have to carry the weight of your sin again, because Jesus said, "It is finished!"
The Light in Your Night - #6622
All those religious hang-ups, all those lame arguments, all the proud resistance, all the spiritual pride just drops to the ground at the foot of His cross and you finally belong to the One you were made for.
A Piece of the Price - #6612
We just can't be content with going to our Christian meetings, giving our little offerings, holding some office, singing our songs, and serving on our committees. This is a costly faith; it's an expensive faith; one for which God's Son gave His life. What are you and I giving? We all have to sacrifice some of our earth loves to reach the people that Christ gave His entire life for.
The Radical Side of "I Do" - #6590
So, laying down your life? It can mean changing diapers, or taking out garbage, or doing the dishes, or caring about the sacrifice of time; the sacrifice that involves listening when you don't feel like it or you don't want to listen that long. She needs your attention; you promised it to her. You promised she would be first.
You Can't See Them, But They're Holding It Together - #6537
I hope you're in the category of God's unsung heroes. Oh, men may not know your name or the sacrifices you're making. Oh, but be sure God does. You may not feel like your role is important, but believe me like those women who supported Jesus' ministry, you're the foundation...you're the support beams.
No Tipping Allowed - #6438
You give God His, and you don't have less; you have more. You've got the God who owns it all saying, "All these things will be added to you." "You don't have to worry," Jesus said. God is your Father, not your waiter. He's your Lord, not your driver. He gets your best. When it comes to God, no tipping allowed.
Convenience Costs More - #6391
The least expensive choice is almost surely the one that will take longer, require more risks and more faith. Don't fall for the lure of what's easy right now. It's probably pulling very hard, but you can't afford the price tag. The narrow road leads to life. The destination is what counts.
