The Only Person Who Can Forgive?

Posted by on May 18, 2017 in Davis Carman, Devotional Encouragement, Encouragement, Slider | 0 comments

The Only Person Who Can Forgive?

And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” (Luke 5:21) The past is inescapable and irreversible. This is why it’s so important to be careful about what we say and do. You see, it is impossible to take back harsh words or rude actions. We all have experienced times of great shame when we’ve hurt someone we love and feel helpless to fix the mess we’ve made. When such an offense happens, there is an immediate debt that must be paid. The friend or family...

The Most Important Ingredient In Homeschool Curriculum Buying

The Most Important Ingredient In Homeschool Curriculum Buying

I’ve heard it on the news, read it on the internet, and seen its truth with my own eyes: This generation of young people is the first in the history of our country to be worse off than their parents. Three important culprits are disease, debt, and despair. And it’s no coincidence children aren’t faring as well as they used to with an increasing number of moms—between 60 and 70 percent—working outside the home. Sometimes we, as homeschool mothers, don’t realize just how crucial our work is. As you’re preparing for a new homeschool year,...

Deuteronomy: Past, Present, and Future

Posted by on Apr 19, 2017 in Davis Carman, Devotional Encouragement, Encouragement, Slider | Comments Off on Deuteronomy: Past, Present, and Future

Deuteronomy: Past, Present, and Future

    Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day. . . . They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. (Deuteronomy 32:46-47)   The fifth book of the Bible, the book of Deuteronomy, is based on a series of sermons delivered by Moses about God’s law. An early Greek translation of the original Hebrew gives us the book’s title—Deuteronomy means “second law”—although a more accurate title might be Words, as in “These are the words Moses spoke” to the people of Israel (Deuteronomy 1:1).  ...

Can We Prepare for Standardized Tests?

Can We Prepare for Standardized Tests?

How Can We Prepare Our Kids for Standardized Tests? My son John did not begin reading until he was seven years old. He had mastered the basic phonics skills, and testing revealed he had a high IQ. But for the life of him, John could not put the sounds together from the page to actually form words. This wouldn’t have bothered me except for the restrictive state homeschooling law we had South Carolina back in 1987. This law required that I take John to a public school he had never attended, leave him with a teacher he had never met, and take...

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” (Colossians 3:16)   Imagine you are about to travel the historic Route 66.

You even read up on the history and background of some notable locales along the way, like the Chain of Rocks bridge...

Devotional: The Lord’s Prayer

Devotional: The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. (Matthew 6:9, KJV)   The Lord’s Prayer has been the topic of many a sermon. The six specific petitions in this passage have been explored in numerous ways to help us, as believers, fully grasp the depth of Christ’s model prayer. The Lord’s Prayer opens with three magnificent requests: that God’s name be honored as holy, that His kingdom will come soon, and that His will would be done on earth just as it is in heaven. These petitions are followed by three...

Are You Prepared for the Second Coming?

Are You Prepared for the Second Coming?

This is why you also must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Matthew 24:44) Matthew 24:42-25:30   Are You Prepared for the Second Coming?   In chapters 24–25 of the gospel of Matthew, Jesus teaches us about the last days and how we must remain vigilant and prepare for His return. Are you fully awake and paying attention, eagerly awaiting His arrival? The parable of the ten virgins in this passage delivers a strong contrast between living wisely and living foolishly. In the story, ten young...

Devotional: The Cups of Communion

Devotional: The Cups of Communion

The Cups of Communion   “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood that establishes the covenant; it is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins.” (Matthew 26:27–28)   In Matthew 26:17–30, we find Jesus and the disciples celebrating the Passover meal together like the Jewish people had been doing since their liberation from slavery in Egypt. This celebration symbolizes God’s protection and deliverance from the tenth plague, when Moses told the people to place the blood of a lamb on their doorposts so that the Lord would see...
