It’s True.

Everyone struggles and often persons’ burdens are only seen by the Lord.

Every person who God brings across your path today is struggling in some way.

They probably need kindness.

They probably don’t need judgment.

(Although loving judgment can be kind.

Case in Point: Jesus’ interaction with the Samaritan Woman at the well in John Chapter 4.)

For each of us who love, trust, follow & serve the Lord Jesus, kindness should be our business card!

“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.”

It’s a true joy to do Random Acts of Kindness!
Be joyous! Be kind!


At times it must be tough to keep a straight face as an Emergency Room Doctor.

There are times when one’s own bright idea and efforts

are a huge problem!

And this is not just with hairdressing projects: It’s also with religious projects!

Isaiah 64:6 –

“For all of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment, and all of us wither like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.”

Do -It-Yourself Righteousness cannot win you either forgiveness or salvation. Only Jesus Christ’s righteousness makes anyone “straight” with Holy God.

And Jesus’ righteousness is given as a grace gift to those who will trust Him and only Him for forgiveness and heaven.

Titus 3:5 –

“He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit … “.

As serious as DIY Hairdressing is, DIY Salvation is WORSE … ETERNALLY WORSE.


I’m all for living a credible and godly life in front of the lost people who are around me.

But that is not complete evangelism.

If we never get around to simply asking the lost person if he or she would like to transfer their trust to Jesus alone for personal salvation, we have failed to do the job.

Evangelism is telling and asking!

Consider these three examples of this from the Gospel of John:

1. Andrew: “One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him (Jesus), was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He found first his own brother Simon, and said to him, ‘we have found the Messiah’ (which translated means Christ). He brought him to Jesus.”

(John 1:40-42A)

2. The Samaritan Woman at the Well: “So the woman left her waterpot, and went into the city, and said to the men, ‘Come, see a man who told me all the things that I have done; this is not the Christ, is it?’ ”

(John 4:28-29)

3. Jesus: (Speaking to his disciples just before he went to the Cross) : “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father , but through Me.”

Andrew, the woman at the well and the Lord Jesus Himself all got to the point. They landed the plane.

Is it time for you to land the plane too with that person who you have been trying to win to Christ?


Fear can be a prison. There are 365 Bible verses which command us not to fear. One verse for each day of the year!

There was a time when the entire army of Israel was in a prison of personal fear.

An intimidating giant dared them to fight but they all were afraid & terrorized. They all hoped that the giant would go away.

Then a young and unassuming shepherd boy walked into their “prison of fear”. He really knew & loved God. He had been studying hard in the “Sheep Pasture Theological Seminary”!

Right away, innocent shepherd boy overcame any fear which he may have had by focusing on his zealous love for his God’s reputation.

1 Samuel 17:26:
“Then David spoke to the men who were standing by him, saying: ‘What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine, and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should taunt the armies of the living God?”

And 1 Samuel 17:32
“And David said to Saul: “Let no man’s heart fail on account of him; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.’ “

And you know the rest of the story: “Bull’s Eye!”
David’s stone LEFT A REAL IMPRESSION on Goliath!

Now, go bail yourself out of your prison of fear!


Being able to work is a blessing from God. Having a meaningful labor to do is also a blessing from Him. Your Lord cares about your work!
And you should care about your Lord as you work!

The first man Adam had meaningful work to do before he was given Eve and before they fell into sin.

Genesis 2:15:
“Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.”

Scripture later informs us that we are to work on our every day jobs in a way that strives to please God. The (Colossians 3:23).

Your job performance is worship just as much as your participation in the corporate worship gathering on Sundays is worship.

There’s no such thing as secular employment.
Hi-Ho, Hi -Ho, It’s off to work I go … to adore & to magnify & to serve my God!
