Sewing and Reaping Eternal Rewards

When I was a young girl, I remember visiting my grandma who did most of her sewing on an old Singer pedal machine because it was what she grew up with. In her day electricity wasn’t afforded for every home, so it was the peddle machine or sewing by hand. It was pure entertainment for me to sit on the floor and help her by pushing the foot-pedal up and down as fast as my...

Solomon’s Fine Attire

Jesus referred to Solomon’s attire when He said, “Not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” (Matthew 6:29). Like one of what? Like the flowers that briefly adorn meadows. God wasn’t impressed with all the expense of Solomon clothes. He found more pleasure in looking at the colorful flowers carpeting the meadows than in peeking into the king’s clothes closet. Our orphans don’t stand in front of packed closets, like Solomon or like many of us, taking time to decide what they will wear that day. They are happy to just have clean clothes that aren’t...

The Power of a Parent

Our partners in India and Rwanda are a lot like parents. They care for these kids willingly, though it is never-ending sacrificial work. In Paul’s last personal letter to Timothy, he mentions two things that Timothy’s mother, Eunice, did that made such a positive impression upon her son. These are the same things our partners are demonstrating before our orphans. And like Eunice, our partners will be highly rewarded in Heaven.First, she demonstrated FAITH. “I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives...

Prison Breaks

The island of Alcatraz is over a mile offshore in San Francisco Bay. For years, this rock was also the site of a federal prison. Some tried to escape, but no one is known to have been successful because of swift ocean currents, cold water, and sharks. The Bible, however, records miraculous escapes from seemingly impossible conditions. The first one is recorded in Acts 12. King Herod arrested the Apostle Peter and planned to publicly execute him the next day. To ensure Peter’s captivity, that night he was chained to two guards and two sentries stood outside his door. He was...

God’s Kingdom

Occasionally, we all have dreams, though most of us can’t remember the specifics of them once we wake up. However, the second chapter of Daniel records in detail one of Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams. At the time, he was the king of the grandest empire of his day, the Babylonian kingdom. God was revealing to him that in the future several other world-dominant kingdoms would replace his, until finally God would establish His own and final kingdom. In that dream, God’s kingdom is pictured as a huge Rock that smashes all the empires of man. When that time comes, the world will...
