Do your words and actions meet up? Your kids may not hear what you’re saying but they definitely notice what you do.
Kids benefit from authenticity. If you’re not consistent, they will turn you off.
This little letter may be small in size and appear to be rather innocuous, but it is both concentrated and potent. Written to correct a misunderstanding regarding the Lord’s return, it not only clarifies some issues regarding prophecy, it deals with several current matters of great practical value. Within these 47 verses, we find such helpful insights as the purpose of persecution as well as the importance of diligence, Bible study, personal discipline, minding our own business, and choosing the right companions.
There’s nothing like a hot blast of reality to blow us off the end of a limb of theory. We think we have it all put together and then we discover how much we still have to learn.
Being Paul’s first letter to find its way into the canon of Scripture, 1 Thessalonians includes a number of personal insights into his early life in ministry. We see and feel Paul’s heart on several occasions. Although brief (fewer than 90 verses), this letter also outlines such practical matters as a church model worth emulating, a philosophy toward ministry worth following, a commitment to purity worth remembering, a hope of Christ’s coming worth anticipating, and a love for fellow Christians worth duplicating. Let’s pay close attention.
A hero is someone who is admired for his achievements, noble qualities, and courage. This definition isn’t limited to dads—even if you’ve never heard it, moms and dads, you are your children's heroes.
