From Poison Make Medicine

Over the last weeks we’ve worked through 1 Peter to better understand suffering, trials and difficulties. To climb up to Bible ground concerning those circumstances which leave us asking God “why?” There can be no doubt that our sufferings can often lead us down undesirable pathways in search of relief or distraction. But Suffering can also bring us to a…

Suffering Like Jesus

This is the third in the Restart series on trials, difficulties and sufferings taken from the Book of First Peter.

We Must Begin with Human Composition The human critter is made up of…

Gluttony is Overeating, Right? Well, yes.  But the climb to Bible Ground reveals it is much more.  Gluttony is the sickness of becoming insatiable after anything.  It could be money or power. We can be selfish about the sanctity of our own time.  We get cranky when people or activities put a crimp on our personal time.  We begin to dodge responsibility to wallow in our…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Greed
