Heaven Week: Write This Down

“He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’ ” (Revelation 21:5) I love the Internet.

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” (Colossians 3:1-2) It’s heaven week on the daily devo. This week, we’re going to ask, “What’s so great about heaven, anyway?” […]

The Code: Unshakable

“He who does these things will never be shaken.” (Psalm 15:5) Old West gunfighters. Mafia and kung fu guys on TV. Marines. All these guy’s guys are said to live their lives by a code. They don’t always do good things – and sometimes they do evil things – but they’re famous for honoring some […]

The Code: Used People

“. . . who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.” (Psalm 15:5) The last item on David’s list of character qualities for an unshakable life is this: Don’t use people for your own advantage. Innocent people. Broke people. […]
