[not peace but sword]

The master had indeed come to bring a sword, but that sword would be wielded by those who would take it up in anger. They would be angry because his way of love and forgiveness was threatening to those who did not embrace it. His way would divide even brother from sister, daughter from father.

Is it possible to keep the faith when you’re continuously bombarded by information?

We’re living in a world where any kind of info is at your fingertips. However, it does not come by demand only, it also attacks you from TV, internet, advertising banners outside.

[when the mind is drawing a blank]

For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So I really don’t know which is better. I’m torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me. // Philippians 1:21-22, NLT

Every experience we get in our life is worth something.

Some experiences are amazing – you wish that they would just continue forever.

Some experiences are not so amazing – when you wish that what happened never happened at all or at least not to you.
