Life’s Entanglements

“No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer . . . Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.”— 2 Tim. 2:4, 7 Growing up, I had a deeply ingrained mental list of all the things […]

Crosses

You may have heard someone say, “It’s just my cross to bear.”  What does that mean?  For most of the folks in this culture it means they have something difficult in their lives that seems to have no end or cure.  But biblically it has a different meaning altogether.
