Hallowed Be Thy Name (Part 1)

by Brent Karding

The “Lord’s Prayer” is a sample of the kind of prayer that pleases the Lord – the kind of prayer that we, as His disciples, ought to pray. This prayer is what our prayers should look like. Not that we should simply regurgitate this prayer daily, but it should be a guide for us in […]

Like a Bloated Spider

by Brent Karding

What is the opposite of being thankful? I think the opposite of thankfulness is covetousness. To live a thankful life is to live in grateful contentment.

In biblical language, we ought to “rejoice in the Lord”! (Phil. 4:4). If we are to share His happiness, we must agree with Him perfectly […]
