Tolerance has become the new litmus test of common decency in secular society. Anything less than a full-fledged endorsement and validation of every worldview, lifestyle, and personal preference is enough to label you as intolerant and cast you out to the fringes of society.

Jesus living in us really can give us power to do the impossible. To love the unloveable. To forgive the unforgivable. This fact is proved by his disciples all around the world, all the time.

Idols aren’t limited to graven objects crafted by human hands. Idols are anything that you give your life to. That you pour every ounce of your energy into in hopes of it bringing you the things you desire in return. Anything you place above God.

by Dr. Eitan Bar

The tongue is the most powerful part of the human body. It’s also the most dangerous weapon. A sword can cut the body but a tongue can wound the soul. The tongue has power to incite hatred and start wars more than any other weapon on the planet.

The first love which characterized the Ephesians was the zeal and ardor with which they embraced their salvation as they realized they loved Christ because He first loved them.

We always hear Christians say things like 'I have been doing everything right.'  Why has God allowed me to go through such hard times? Does He not care about me?'

When faced with overwhelming circumstances, we must remember God’s love and care for us. Dwelling on our problems will bring added anxiety, but faith comes as we reflect on God’s faithfulness in our lives.

The world tells us that ending a relationship is as easy as hitting the "unfriend" button. But when I read the Bible, I don't see any room for outrage, resentment, intolerance or unfriending.

My first response is often to hold a grudge, replaying and rehearsing the offense, and then recollecting all the thoughtless things that person has said or done to me.

Every man who wants to be a leader should know that the best possible place he could imagine for this training is in his own family. These verses teach us that a stable, secure family, led by a man who knows how to practise his fatherhood, is the basis for every important job in the Lord.

What should we do when we need help and feel like a burden to those we love? Or how should we respond when we are exhausted caring for others?

by Michael Bradley

Do good works for the Lord, produce good fruit for the Lord, and you can then leave this life with absolutely no regrets and that you lived this life to its fullest for the Lord. And from there, God will highly and appropriately reward you for those good works and good fruit once you enter into heaven to be with Him for all of eternity.

One of the great mysteries of Christianity is contentment. At least one must presume it is a mystery, because so few people live it. Yet contentment is not something that's found; it is an attitude.

So often we take ourselves too seriously. Certainly there are those times in life that are not occasions for laughter, but most of life is ordinary living and we can choose whether to find laughter and joy or not. It can begin by learning to laugh at yourself and look for the funny around you.

by Joni Eareckson Tada and Dr. Michael Easley

Joni Eareckson Tada’s life has inspired millions of people around the world, but few know the background of her tragic story. At the age of 17, a diving accident left this healthy, teenage athlete a quadriplegic confined to a wheelchair, including many difficult surgeries to save her life. In addition, a few years ago Joni was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer.

Did you know the Bible talks a lot about gossip? It's not just a "little sin" as some of us like to rationalize. It says, "You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people."

Unconditional love is caring about someone without limitations; loving without conditions and doing something to make someone happy without any thought for what we might get for ourselves. This type of love is rare; it's uncommon to receive kindness without strings attached.

Many Christians hold a decidedly unbiblical view of work. Some view it as a curse while others make it into an idol, expecting it to provide them with their identity and purpose in life as well as being a source of joy and fulfillment that only God can provide.

There is no way to avoid conflict in your marriage. The question is: How will you deal with it?

by Dennis Rainey

Let me begin by saying that I cannot think of a circumstance in a marriage or family that could justify abuse of any kind - emotional, mental, physical, or sexual. Abusive behavior was never and can never be a part of God's plan for a marriage or a family.

Holy living is something that must play an extremely important role in the life of every believer in Christ. Holiness is the tenet that creates a clear distinction between those who are in Christ and those who are not.

Marriage is the biggest and most important decision you will make after your decision to follow Jesus. All marriages  start out with a "first date". One of the main problems is that too many Christians approach the idea of dating with far too casual an attitude.

I would look around at my friends’ lives and feel cheated. I knew they had their own struggles, but from my perspective, God streamed sunshine over their days while mine were overshadowed by clouds and pouring rain. It was hard to see God’s love in that.

Christian joy is not so much a feeling as it is a choice. But some will immediately respond, “How can I possibly be always joyful with the hurts, the pains and the difficulties that God has allowed to enter my life?” That’s a fair question but God has a good answer.

by Andreas Kostenberger

Today, marriage and the family are regularly viewed as social conventions that can be entered into and severed by the marital partners at will. As long as a given marriage relationship meets the needs of both individuals involved and is considered advantageous by both sides, the marriage is worth sustaining.

I found myself growing fearful. Not a heart-stopping all-encompassing fear, but the kind of constant gnawing that creeps into your bones when you hear bad news or see something going awry. When you extrapolate the discouraging trends of the present into the future and assume things will never change.

A relationship is just like a garden.  A garden needs to be watered and fertilized and weeds need to be pulled out on a regular basis. When you neglect to pull out the weeds in your garden they will eventually take over the whole garden, choking the life out of the other plants. In other words, if you want your garden to grow and flourish you need to put aside time to spend in it.

Since I was speaking at a youth conference about teens and technology, I figured the dad waiting to speak with me wanted to talk about his crazy texting teenager. You see, this man was a father of three who had a wonderful wife except for one little area. She was addicted to Twitter.

Humankind is not naturally hones. Dishonesty has worldly rewards - lying can often bring financial gain, power, or temporary satisfaction. But the rewards come at a price.

by Michael Houdmann

Joy is something we all long for but that often seems difficult to grab hold of. Experiencing joy should be a part of every Christian’s life. Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, produced only by God’s work in us.

by Jen Thorn

We tend to use the word “friend” quite carelessly. Any person we have a few conversations with, work with, or “like” on Facebook we call “friend.” This is not necessarily bad, but through it, I believe, we are losing the real meaning of Biblical friendship.

by Mark Altrogge

Our culture constantly tells us to build our self-esteem and think highly of ourselves. Yet the Bible urges us to do the opposite. To pursue humility. And we have plenty of reasons to be humble.

by Truth For The World

In order to learn compassion, we need to turn to the source of it, the Master Teacher. We need to cry, in effect, “Lord, teach us compassion.” Let us examine three ways in which Christ helps us to manifest this beautiful, but seemingly elusive quality in today’s self serving society.

What if God isn't asking us to make big changes in His world? What if God is using us to make small changes? God is not absent from the world He created; He is present and He is at work. He does not need us, but yet He delights in using us to accomplish His purposes.
