False Fasting

January 9, 2019

False Fasting Fasting used to be done primarily for religious purposes. Today, most of those who voluntarily abstain from eating want to improve their health or to lose weight, with little thought given to fasting as a spiritual practice. In Isaiah’s day, people practiced fasting in an attempt to get God’s attention and enlist His aid. They...

The River and the City

January 14, 2019

The River and the City Magazines such as U.S. News & World Report, Kiplingers, and Money often publish articles about the best places to live or retire.

God’s Care for All Creation

January 15, 2019

God’s Care for All Creation Deism is a philosophy that believes in the existence of a supreme being but does not believe that this being is engaged with the universe. The god of deism created all things and then stepped back to let creation run according to its own laws. We might describe this god as the world’s absentee landlord. Today’s...

The Miraculous Feast

January 19, 2019

The Miraculous Feast In addition to mass-produced bread, many grocery stores now also sell artisan bread, which has been baked by a trained craftsman.

The Bread King

January 20, 2019

The Bread King Toddlers who receive gifts are often more interested in the wrapping paper and packaging than in what those things contain. We can do the same with God’s gifts. We become focused on the things we want from God and we lose sight of God Himself. This was the problem with the crowd that followed Jesus across the lake after the...

Bread from Heaven

January 21, 2019

What Is Food For?

What Is Food For? Phyllis grew up in poverty during the Great Depression. Hunger was a daily concern for her family. Sometimes they had enough food for only three or four meals per week. On other occasions the entire family had to share a single can of beans. Perhaps because of this, Phyllis became obsessed with food as an adult. She had...

The End of Hunger and Thirst

January 29, 2019

The End of Hunger and Thirst In 2015 the United Nations set a goal to end world hunger by the year 2030. As we enter 2019, it doesn’t seem likely that this goal will be achieved.

The Spring and the Lake

January 30, 2019

The Spring and the Lake A spring forms when water flows from an underground water source or aquifer to the surface, evidence of a greater source of water. The biblical metaphor of the spring also points us toward the source of eternal life. The Bible’s description of the new heavens and earth reveals that a very different order will replace...

Mature Faith Is God’s Gift In 1885, a Russian czar commissioned Carl Fabergé and his family jewelry business to create a special Easter gift for his wife.
