A GIFT OF THE WORD
When I was a teenager, my pastor gave me a little pocket New Testament, bound in red leather. And inside, on the flyleaf, he had written a note. And with the note was a Scripture citation: Romans 12:1-2. I couldn’t wait to turn to that passage and read what it said. If you

WORDS IN THE SPIRIT
When I was asked to be the preacher for the North Little Rock Ministerial Alliance Community Thanksgiving Service, I was floored. I didn't think that anybody thought that much about me. I was honored by the gesture, but the moment I said "yes," my nerves got the best of me.

ADDING TO THE WORD
Years ago, my Dad's physician told him to take one aspirin a day for his heart. My Dad was a very smart man, but he figured if one aspirin is good, two would be better. So my dad "added" to the word of his physician, and day after day my dad took two aspirin.
