The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. (John 12:25)

You must chose which life you value because you will not have both.  Love life here and lose eternal life.  Hate this life and gain eternal life.


“Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.” (Proverbs 23:22)

As Western culture continues to favor the young, it’s worth remembering what the Bible says about honoring your parents and listening to them. We do well to draw on the wisdom of those who have lived longer than we have.


Then Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned. I violated the Lord’s command and your instructions. I was afraid of the people and so I gave in to them. (I Samuel 15:24)

Leaders set the example for those that follow them.  Real leadership takes courage and will not always be popular.  There are people counting on you to lead them.  Be courageous and faithful.


“Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” (Psalms 23:6)

To live with God forever… there is no greater goal. We can accumulate money, gather stuff, gain power… all of that will fail us in the end. But if the Lord is our Shepherd, the finale will be even greater than the journey to get there.


So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me. (Acts 27:29)

Our faith that God will do as he promised is what gives us the courage to live the Jesus way.


“The Israelites are stubborn, like a stubborn heifer. How then can the LORD pasture them like lambs in a meadow?” (Hosea 4:16)

God wants to lead us and give us guidance, but he can’t do it when we resist him and insist on our own way. We have to learn humility, recognizing that our ways aren’t always best. Then God can show us the right way to go.


One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. (Luke 6:12)

Everything starts with prayer.  If you want to make decisions that honor God, spend more time in prayer.  Jesus did.




“Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.” (Psalms 16:9-10)

The apostle Peter explained to the crowd on the Day of Pentecost that these words were written about Jesus. He did not stay in the tomb, and his body did not decay. He rose from the grave, defeating death and assuring the victory of life for all who believe in him.

Therefore our hearts are also glad and our tongues will rejoice. Christ is risen!
