Nehemiah’s Priority: Prayer And they said to me, “The remnant there in the province who had survived the exile is in great trouble and shame.

His father came out and entreated him, but he answered his father, ‘Look, these many years I have served you, and I never…

Mind Your Own Business  But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one. — 1 Thessalonians 4.10-12 Pandemics lead to panic. Politics give way to extreme polarization. And fear…

You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and you preserve all of them; and the host of heaven worships you. — Nehemiah 9.6 Someone recently asked me, “What are your predictions for 2021?” Here is how I responded to…
