Jesus spoke a word: Mustard seeds are minute, tiny—but the seeds grow into trees. Flocks of birds can come and build their nests in the branches. Matthew 13:32 (The Voice) We never know the extent of what God will do with a tiny thing. Mustard seeds are very small. To look at them you wouldn’t…

There is no doubt that a retired person has more time than those caught up in the throes of working. We have more time to do a great many things, but many of us spend a great deal of time thinking about our past; wishing we had done things differently, or wondering if we’ll ever…

Today I read a devotion that was so thought provoking that I decided to meditate on it myself. The devotion spoke of the words describing Abraham, that he believed God and it was accounted unto him for righteousness. As I looked at it I saw that this was not only said once, it was said…
