Our dog Bean loves stuffed animals. When he gets a new one, he trots around with it in his mouth so happy. But what he loves most is shredding them! We are amazed if a stuffy lasts 2-3 days. Most stuffies last only a few hours. When this happens we have to take his plaything away or he eats the cotton insides.Continue reading Explaining the Unexplainable

This excellent post is about the difference between Judging and Discerning. It is written by Mannyr of the blog Cracked-Pot.
Judging vs. Discerning
Jesus plainly stated that we are not to judge others. But
so often His words are used against Christians who are trying to
point out wrong in society. And it seems that so few Christians
know how to answer such objections.
So, what should you do if, upon seeing evil in the world, and

I truly desire to do that.
There’s a word used frequently in the New Testament called “exhortation.” Sometimes we use it interchangeably with “encouragement.” The words are definitely similar, but there’s a little different aspect to exhortation. Encouragement says, “You are doing great!” Exhortation says, “You are doing great! But I know you can do even better!” Exhortation pushes you forward and deeper into your walk with Christ and…
