A BALANCED LIFE

Exodus 20:8-11 Of the Ten Commandments, which is the one that most people, including perhaps many of us here today, think really doesn’t apply to us? Which one do we think we is least important for us today? It’s really not that big of deal. Without a doubt it is the fourth commandment regarding the Sabbath. Over time many in the church have attached less and less importance to this commandment. Someone has said that our great-grandfathers referred to the seventh day as the Holy Sabbath, our grandfathers called it the Sabbath, our parents referred to it as Sunday, and now it’s simply the weekend. It has lost its spiritual significance. Oh, we’d never come out and say that we don’t think it’s

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

Exodus 20:7 What comes to your mind when I say the name Mother Teresa? Probably traits such as compassion and selfless service on behalf of others. How about Martin Luther King? We may think of a champion of racial justice and non-violence. What about tennis great Roger Federer? Perhaps we think of athletic skill and a dedication to excellence. The late Princess Diana?

Gucci purses went for around $20. How could they sell them so cheaply when a Rolex watch anywhere else will cost you thousands of dollars and a Gucci purse might go for $1,000 and up? Well, of course these were not original Rolex watches or Gucci purses. They were copies; just cheap imitations made to look like the originals. On the street the

THE COMPETITION FOR OUR HEARTS

Are you by nature a competitive person? Some people are; they compete at everything and have to win at everything, even simply playing board games with family. Others are not so competitive; for any number of reasons they simply are not so driven to have to always come out on top. But the fact is we live in a very competitive world, don’t we? Sporting events are all about competition. Sure, they also may emphasize good sportsmanship and teamwork and perseverance, but in the end teams, players, and coaches are competing to win. Whether it’s the World Cup, the Super Bowl, or the Olympic finals, teams and individuals compete until finally there is but one winner. Maybe you’re not a sports fan b
