Physical taining makes us tougher, stronger and gives endurance: it enables us.

Spiritual training can do the same thing. It can make us able to give more, be more patient & kind, to eliminate fear and stress.

Most religious movements are more about healing or rehab - AFTER we're broken. These lessons are about PREVENTING failure by getting us stronger.

Do you want to be a victim or a rescuer?
"victims" need care, attention & pity - rescuers are the heroes who rush to help, to give, to love. Victims will find little comfort here. This isn't for sympathy or pity - it's about service, sharing, helping and contributing.

    Family Problems (Torah #13)

    Family Problems (Torah #13)

    Families talk.  We bicker, we disagree, and we stay together because we are family and we're supposed to.  Yet in several instances, God's word has records of family arguments where the people involved seem to completely forget that there is a Creator God, His name is Yahweh, and He comes first - even ahead of family!  When we allow ourselves to get wrapped up in family bickering - within our physical families or even our church families ... we are disrespecting & disobeying our God! 
    Learn from the mistakes of our older brothers and sisters!

    Grasshopper Faith (Torah #12)

    Grasshopper Faith (Torah #12)

    Sorry the sound is messed up on this one again.  I fixed it some, and it's not too bad in the middle ...
    This episode is an attempt to recap the experiences of the three main characters from the burning bush, plagues, trials of desert life and dependency on God, camping at Sinai and receiving the Torah ... and now they should be ready to enter the Promised Land!  God had trained them - He has given them plenty of reason to understand that He will take care of them.  But then something happens...  
    "Self Esteem" is one of the very popular false gods of our time.  We are taught  - sadly even in churches - that we should have "good" self-esteem.  These people's esteem was spot-on: compared to the giants in the land, they looked like grasshoppers.  Was that bad self image?  No, it was accurate. 
    God's people do not walk by self esteem!  We walk by FAITH, which is: "God Esteem."  "The man who trusts himself is a fool," wrote Solomon in the Proverbs, and it's still true.  Self esteem is a god of false hope.

    Torah (Torah #11)

    Torah (Torah #11)

    Okay this one is actually about the Torah itself: the law of Moses.  Does it apply today?  Should we post it in the courthouses of the USA?  What does it have to do with anything?
    at least ... that's what I think this episode is about.  Actually, I haven't listened to it, and don't remember what I preached about, but this seems logical.

    God Provides (Torah #8)

    God Provides (Torah #8)

    God is a patient teacher.  He wants us to understand that we can trust Him completely for everything we need.  If we will learn these lessons, we will arrive at a place of peace.  We will discover that we need fear nothing - be anxious for nothing - be stressed: zero. 
    This episode of the Exodus is where God's people have escaped their bondage, been baptized in the sea, and now are on their own in the middle of nowhere in the desert.  So now what? 
    Now God begins the slow process of teaching them that they can live in the middle of a barren desert, because their strength and provisions do not come from their work, but from God's hand.
