Be Your Own Judge

Today is a Gift

Be Your Own Judge

An easy way to set yourself up for disappointment is to wait for others to tell you what a great job you have done. The truth is, it just doesn’t happen as often as we would like. Waiting for the approval of others is a losing game. Be your own judge bRayy acknowledging your achievements. Look at the things you have accomplished. Be honest about what you wish you had done differently. However, don’t beat yourself up. Forget it and move on. Remember the "good stuff" that happens daily. That’s the foundation on which to build your confidence and self-esteem. –RL

Stand with Chick-fil-A on August 1 in Support of Traditional Marriage

Just a few days ago, Dan Cathy, President of Chick-fil-A, affirmed his stance on the sanctity of traditional marriage. The restaurant chain has been, and continues to be, under a concerted attack from same-sex marriage advocates.

I applaud the courage of Cathy to take a bold stand for the biblical definition of marriage between a man and woman in a culture that has grown openly hostile to the Christian faith and its followers.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has called for a National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on Wednesday, August 1, to demonstrate support for the company. I would like to join with him, and ask that, if you live near one of their restaurants please drop by and let them know how much you appreciate them and their stand.

In the words of the bold, biblical prophet Daniel who refused to bow to the culture of his day: "The people who know their God will display strength and take action" (Daniel 11:32, NASB).

Thank you and God bless you.

Peace in Families

Studies show that entire families who begin the day with hot food, encouraging words, and affection do their respective tasks more efficiently during the time they are apart…

The unfortunate ones who leave each other after a quarrel do not fare as well. Unhappy or stressed students make poorer grades in school and do not get along with others as well as children who leave home with a positive attitude.

It is the responsibility of parents to instill in their children positive attitudes, as well as a depth of love and forgiveness that makes for peace in families. This is best done by example. Be before them what you want them to become.
