    What Do You Want? - #17

    What Do You Want? - #17

    Over the past several weeks, as people tried to figure out what to buy you for Christmas, you were probably asked “What do you want?” many times. What if Jesus asked you that question as he did to some of His followers? How would you answer? What if the question was, “What do you want to give Him?” Answering these questions may be more valuable than any New Year’s resolutions you will set.

    Peace at Christmas Through Compassion #15

    Peace at Christmas Through Compassion #15

    Peace is on my mind because Jesus was called the “Prince of Peace” when His birth was predicted, as recorded in Isaiah 9:6. It would be wonderful if we could live at peace during this hectic season. Yet, kids will be excited, sleep deprived, and on a sugar high. Let’s respond with compassion!
