Share With Friends

There’s an anonymous guy in the Bible that I identify with. He asks a lot of questions! In the book of Luke, there’s a moment where Jesus summarizes the intent of the Old Testament by saying, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength” and […]

The Intersection of Bold Faith and Common Sense

Share With Friends

“Trust in God but tie up your camel” reads the ancient Arabian proverb. In other words, have faith, but don’t neglect common sense.

I’ve never fought in a great battle, never landed in hostile territory, and have never really worn a military uniform of any kind. I’m also not an especially gifted athlete.
