Is this another symptom of the "NOW" generation? Contrast this with the opening lines of Robert Browning's poem :Rabbi Ben Era: "Grow old along with me, The best is yet to be The last of life for which the first was made." James 5:7,8 urges us to be "patient, therefore, brethren" --- not just for the ketchup to flow faster, but to "bear patiently the cross of grief or pain" and trust that the Lord always has something better in store for us ( certainly, better than a few drops of ketchup!!) "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:13) Sincerely, Yours in the Master's service, Chris Ederesinghe

Numbers | James Grocho

This video explains that throughout life we are surrounded by numbers, like our age, weight, I.Q., etc. It's easy to let these numbers define who we are. To find ourselves in Christ, we must let go of our insignificant numbers. Only then will we be able to receive our true identity. [ read more ]
