MWM: I do declare

Words matter. The Bible repeatedly warns us to watch our mouth, to be careful with the words we speak. In the last #MWM, we saw how the name of Jesus is mighty, and one day, everyone will bow before Him. Not only that, but one day, whether you want to or not, you will verbally... Continue Reading →

MWM: The Name

Taking a knee seems to be a “thing” these days. Some take a knee in protest, and some take a knee in prayer (the two are not mutually exclusive). However, one day we will all be on our knees in reverence and worship of Jesus Christ. Some of us choose to bow in submission to... Continue Reading →

MWM: Name

I remember when Lyndsey and I found out we were going to become parents. It was a great day. One of the many conversations we had about parenting involved naming the kiddo. While we couldn’t agree on a name for a boy, we immediately settled on a name for a girl. When the second baby... Continue Reading →

MWM: Instant Obedience

One of the principles we are trying to teach our kids is instant obedience. When asked to do something by someone in authority, we expect compliance. Of course, we are trying to teach them to filter everything through the lens of Scripture, so if asked to do anything counter to the Word or character of... Continue Reading →

MWM: Real Sacrifice

If you had all of the power in the world, would you give it up? If you could know, see, and hear everything that was ever said all at once and not forget any of it, would you give up that ability? Jesus was God and had divine privileges that extend further and farther than... Continue Reading →

MWM: Others

You are not God. I know that may come as a shock to some because they think they are, have been treated like it, or been outright told so. But, alas, you are not. Neither am I! The mantra of many generations is found in the Sinatra song, “I did it my way.” In other... Continue Reading →

MWM: Outlook

Garbage in, garbage out. This was taught to me at a very young age. Whatever I let into my mind influences my heart and my hands. It is something we are trying to teach our daughters as well. Warren Wiersbe said, “Outlook determines outcome.” If our outlook is selfish, then our actions will be divisive... Continue Reading →

MWM: Interesting

Have you ever met those people that only talk about themselves? I sat down with some folks once and spent three hours with them. Not once did they ask about my life or what was going on. But I learned about their brother’s dead cat and their sister’s best friend's wallpaper. Seriously. People like to... Continue Reading →

MWM: Humility

One of the most powerful character traits is humility. When you meet someone who is genuinely humble, it impresses. A humble person seeks to serve and love, is quick to show grace and mercy, and generally brings joy. The best example of humility in the entire history of the world is Jesus. As followers of...
