  • End distracted driving now

    I confess: I used to make the choice to drive while distracted. Every time we get behind the wheel, we have a choice:  the wise one to focus on the serious responsibility of operating a motor vehicle or the hazardous one to use the “down time” of driving doing other things.
    The worst part is that  we all depend on the other drivers to make the wise choice – conscious or not.

  • Like Naaman, we need to heed God’s word

    The Bible contains pictures of saving faith, the faith which brings people into a right relationship with God. In 2 Kings 5, Naaman, a leprous Syrian general, found cleansing through obeying the command of the Hebrew prophet Elisha.
    Naaman was the courageous pagan commander of the Syrian army, highly regarded because through him God had given deliverance to Syria.
    A young Jewish girl worked in Naaman’s home as a servant to his wife. She felt compassion for Naaman and mentioned to his wife that there was a prophet in Samaria who would heal him of his disease.

  • Start by telling the truth

    When I was a young boy growing up and my mother confronted me with something that I knew I had done wrong, I often stammered around, making excuses and trying to avoid fessing up. My mom’s response was always the same: “Let’s begin by just telling the truth.”
    When it comes to the Statehouse debacle over so-called “ethics reform,” they should simply follow mom’s wisdom – let’s begin by just telling the truth.
