     | 1,946 views

    Making clear His attitude toward the Old Law, Jesus challenged the religious leaders teaching and raised the bar when it came to righteous living.

  • Difference Makers Are Different

    To make a difference, one must be different. Such is a real possibility as we become salt and light before a decaying and dark world.

    You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a ...read more

    While we tend to focus on the purity of such things as food, water, and air, we would be wise to focus more intently on the purity of heart that Jesus speaks of here. A purity if not possessed will prevent us from seeing God both now and eternally.

    Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. The ermine is a short-tailed weasel that has the unique feature of having its fur change to a snow-white color in the win¬ter. God created this animal with this feature to protect it from others. The ermine instinctively protects his white ...read more
