Our Daily Bread Back in the 1930s, my childhood home was loving and happy, but my parents were often away. On those occasions, the center of warmth in our home was the kitchen and our tiny, joyous housekeeper named Annie. I spent many hours with Annie, sitting at our kitchen table reading books or playing with toys and listening to her sing and hum spirituals and hymns. From her heart sprang a continual flow of wisdom, cheerfulness, and song.

The way Life is “Welcome to Maine: The Way Life Should Be” reads the sign as you cross the border from New Hampshire into Maine on I-95. As someone who loves the pristine waters of Maine’s lakes, its glorious rocky coast, the simplicity of waking up to pull on a pair of well-worn jeans, and the smell of pine needles as I walk through an evergreen forest, it might seem logical that I would agree with that sign. But I always correct that sentiment when I read it. I’ve learned through my study of Christian Science that any good that I see in Maine or anywhere in the world is just a hint of the way Life, God, really is.

Developing Faith How to Understand and Apply Faith to your Life We are called to learn and develop faith because faith is essential and of the utmost importance for every aspect of the Christian life. Without faith, we can do nothing! As Christians, especially those who are responsible for the education and care of others, we are called to build our spiritual formation from the solid foundation of the Bible (Rom. 10:17; Heb. 11:6). Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 The Ancient Chinese Libertarian Tradition - Murray N. Rothbard The first libertarian intellectual was Lao-tzu, the founder of Taoism. Little is known about his life, but apparently he was a personal acquaintance of Confucius in the late sixth century BC and like the latter came from the state of Sung and was descended from the lower aristocracy of the Yin dynasty. Unlike the notable apologist for the rule of philosopher-bureaucrats, however, Lao-tzu developed a radical libertarian creed. For Lao-tzu the individual and his happiness was the key unit and goal of society. If social institutions hampered the individual's flowering and his happiness, then those institutions should be reduced or abolished altogether. To the individualist Lao-tzu, government, with its "laws and regulations more numerous than the hairs of an ox," was a vicious oppressor of the individual, and "more to be feared than fierce tigers."
TRUTH - TEN COMMANDMENTS The TEN COMMANDMENTS codified in Two Tables Of Sapphire Stone at Mt. Sinai:  I [am] the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. [Exodus 20:2] Thou shalt have no other gods before me. [Exodus 20:3]  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: [Exodus 20:4] Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me; [Exodus 20:5] And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Tozer Devotional Sun, October 16, 2011 Working Out What God Works In You The Holy Spirit in this passage is saying two things: God works in you to will, but you are to work with God in working it out. Sharon Jaynes Do you long for something more in your relationship with God? The good news is that “something” more does not mean “doing more.” God’s not waiting for you to get your spiritual life “right.” He’s desires to commune with you right where you are.
What Should We Pray For? One way to answer this question is to look at what the early church prayed for. Here is a list gathered from the New Testament. It can guide you in how you pray. I suggest that periodically you pray through this list just to test whether your prayers are leaving out anything the New Testament included. We don't have to pray all of these each time we pray. But over time it would be good if our prayers had the breadth and depth of the New Testament prayers.
