Men to Know: Asaph

  • by

I’ve thought about the future a lot lately. I am a planner, so that is part of my nature but what about the things I can not plan for? What can I do that will be effective after I am gone? These kinds of questions have been heavy on my mind because I am now married and the responsibility of the children I am raising, the bride I am honoring are in my thoughts. The legacy I want to leave is one that places God first and the glory to Him with no question. So what does this man Asaph have to do with that? He accomplished what I want to.

I Do

The Big I Do

  • by

I’ll preface this by saying that I am no authority on the role that I am about to take, but this is about my hopes, my dreams, my prayers to be what I discuss. After October 15th at 3:00 PM (I just checked the time of the wedding. No seriously, I did.) I will not be just Scott; I will be Scott, the husband. Legally it’s a small change with profound repercussions. I do not wish to discuss what the law says I am because that is simple and far easier than explaining what God commands of that position. It is quite terrifying frankly.

Men to Know: Diotrephes

This is post 2 of 7 in the series “Men to Know” Diotrephes, that is not a name that rings a bell. It didn’t for me anyway. I’m not a learned scholar of God’s word but I do the best I can to learn more so when I read about Diotrephes I just kind of had a “huh, interesting” moment. You can read about Diotrephes in 3 John 1:9-11, yep… Read More »Men to Know: Diotrephes

Men to Know: Joash

This is post 1 of 7 in the series “Men to Know” Charisma is a dangerous thing, not only for the person who exudes it but also for the individual who soaks up that energy. I wonder, how many men live their religion vicariously through someone else. It’s easy to do; I’m guilty of it. We get wrapped up in the charisma of someone we see as a model of… Read More »Men to Know: Joash
Shackles of Doubt

Breaking the Shackles of Doubt

We all have doubt. I doubt myself. I doubt the person who says they’ve never doubted anything. I really doubt the person who says they’ve never doubted God. It’s hard not too when we face a difficult time in our life. Why is this happening? Why does God allow it to happen? What did I do to be put through this? All questions we ask ourselves in times where we… Read More »Breaking the Shackles of Doubt

This is post 63 of 64 in the series “Daily Devotional” You are also members of His household. – Ephesians 2:19 What is home to you? Maybe it is whatever building all your stuff is in.

Help One Another

Be There For One Another

This is post 62 of 64 in the series “Daily Devotional” Everyone helps his neighbor and says to his brother, “Be strong!” – Isaiah 41:6 A few weeks ago my pastor was speaking about church, about diversity in the church when he was addressing the issues we face today in the world. Mostly in America because that is where we live but abroad also. It’s painful to think that you… Read More »Be There For One Another
Teaching Forgiveness

Teaching Forgiveness

Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. – Colossians 3:13 Kids ask the darnedest things. Sometimes I don’t even know how to answer them in a kid like manner. I was talking to Bethany about that on the way home from a coffee run to Dunkin’ Donuts. While we were driving… Read More »Teaching Forgiveness
