Does God Bless Us When We Act in an Unrighteous Way?

When I was a kid and faced with the potential consequences ("consequences" nothing...I mean I was faced with getting punished!) for my actions, there was often that moment that every kid dreads. I had to tell my dad or mom what I did. Now look, they already knew what I did; they were teaching me to own what I did. Anyway, at those fateful and fearful moments, my dad would often say “tell the truth and shame the devil!” This was never easy to hear for it reminded me that God is pleased with truth and the devil is pleased with lies, and even though lying seemed like a “get out of jail free” card, it was really an “out of the frying pan and into the fire” card. Guidelines are easier when you are a kid. As adults, how well do we do when faced with the gray areas and the white lies of life? Do we have resolve? Is it strong? What is it based upon? Can God bless us when in those gray areas?

What is Wisdom Made of? Part II

This subject is SO important, we had to do a two-parter!  Here’s a question for you – what do Ben Franklin, Gandalf from “Lord of the Rings,” King Solomon and Master Yoda from “Star Wars” all have in common?  The answer is WISDOM, and the wisdom each possessed separated them from the crowd.  Wisdom gave them each respect, credibility and significance in the context of their lives, and it was wisdom that made them leaders.  So, whether its in a fictional character or not, wisdom is a prevailing characteristic in life.  Kinda makes you want to have some, doesn’t it?  On Part II of this podcast we continue our examination of wisdom.
