  1. It isn’t that God struggles to believe our repeated cries of “wolf.” Rather, we struggle to believe God when he repeatedly comes to us with forgiveness and mercy on his lips.
  2. Jesus lives to intercede. So we needn’t bring him our feigned righteousness or our faux rehabilitation.
  3. My earliest memory of seeing a cartoonist drawing of Adam and Eve was in the waiting room at the pediatrician’s office. I probably had the flu. Sitting with my mom- I was waiting for the nurse to come and call our name. Also, I was hoping that I wouldn’t get a shot.
  4. I love the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector. So much is communicated in those few verses.
  5. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.” We hear those words on the lips of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount. But, too often we misunderstand what he’s saying.
  6. We’re all familiar with the “outrage” in our culture about the trend in youth sports to award “participation trophies.”
  7. Have you ever heard of Spanx? Although they’ve only been around since 2010, their predecessors have been around for centuries.
  8. Have you ever played hide and seek with a 2-year-old? News flash: They’re terrible at it.
