  • Our Traditions Series

    Contributed by Tim White on Dec 5, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    based on 17 ratings

    Jesus is not impressed with an outward show of self-righteousness, but with an inner heart of dependence upon Him, which he found among the Gentile "dogs."

    I like this thought posted by Mike Atkinson in his daily email humor list some time ago.

    Contributed by David Smith on Dec 15, 2006
    based on 18 ratings

    Depictions of Christ suffering on the cross are common in Christian literature and iconography. Few though are the depictions of Jesus walking around exhausted, during his earthly ministry. Yet the tiredness of Jesus is seen commonly in the Gospels, and

    Life is not fair. Most of us understand that. It was not fair that some children died at birth or had crippling diseases, and I have been allowed to live and enjoy good health. It was not fair that some were born with cerebral palsy and I was able to grasp difficult concepts and get passing more
