“One expression in Titus 2 deserves special notice. It is the word homemakers. The Greek word is oikourgous, which literally means “workers at home.” Oikos is the Greek word for “home,” and ergon means “work, employment.” It suggests that a married woman’s first duty is to her own family, in her own household. Managing her own home should be her primary employment, her first task, her most important job, and her true career.”

– JOHN MACARTHUR

Often times, I have heard this question asked: can your worrying change anything? Can it make the sun go down, or the moon come up at night? The answer is, and will always be, No. We cannot change anything when we worry, but still we worry.. we worry for the future, we worry for our partners, we worry for our kids, we worry for our finances. But never has anything good come from worrying. “NLV Philippians 4:6-7 Do not worry. Learn to pray about everything. Give thanks to God as you ask Him for w

At 72, I look and feel older.

Both the mirror and camera capture the real me. My many ailments are physical signs of aging.

Remember wind up clocks?

I once heard a thought provoking quote. ‘You can’t turn back the clock. But you can wind it up again.’ (Bonnie Prudden)

“Return and say to Hezekiah the leader of My people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David says: ‘I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I am going to heal you. On the th

II Chronicles 7:14 "If MY PEOPLE which are CALLED BY MY NAME, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

You are a candidate for revival IF:

You are born-again – You need to possess spiritual life before there is anything to revive.  The Bible says that unsaved persons are DEAD in trespasses and sins (Eph. 2:1).  New life is available by grace, not

“There is no jewel in the world so valuable as a chaste and virtuous woman.”

– MIGUEL DE CERVANTES

Proverbs 12:4: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”

Matthew Poole’s Commentary on Proverbs 12:4:

A crown; a singular ornament and matter of his glorying and joy.

That maketh ashamed; that by her folly or wickedness bringeth shame to herself and to her husband. As rottenness in his bones; loathsome, and vexatious, and pernicio

What’s your honest opinion? Do red lights interfere with your schedule?

My husband doesn’t like sitting at big city red lights. They take so long to change. Personally, I prefer red lights over 4-way stop signs. Red lights take the guess work out of stopping and proceeding into traffic. I wouldn’t find opinions or preferences in the Louisiana driver’s manual. The pamphlet explains the laws.

What about caution lights? Many drivers speed up to avoid the changing from yello

Psalm 23

"Jesus is my Shepherd; I shall not want. Jesus makes me lie down in green pastures: Jesus leads me beside the still waters. Jesus restores my soul: Jesus leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Jesus is with me; Jesus' rod and His staff comfort me. Jesus prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Jesus anoints my head with oil; my cup runs

“In contrast to the wise woman, the foolish woman is not content to be a keeper at home. She is not satisfied with where God has put her. One of the things the feminist movement has done so successfully is to stir up discontent in women with being homemakers and to convince them that other pursuits can increase their sense of self-worth… Fueling discontent and pushing women out of their homes in search of greater meaning and satisfaction has resulted in off-the-chart stress levels for many

In today’s devotional we will be talking about something really important. It can be a reason why many people aren’t doing well or why many are stuck in a place. Most times some of us wonder, how come my blessing never comes? How come my plans fail, I had a great idea but it just fizzled out now someone else is doing it and it seems like a terrific idea what happened to me? It’s amazing sometimes that the little things we do are responsible for the major failure we get in life. So in toda

“Oh don’t forget the rubies, the rarest of all gems. Is your crown radiating with rubies of reverence and respect for your husband?”

– NANCY CAMPBELL

Proverbs 12:4: “A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.”

Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament on Proverbs 12:4:

“4 A good brave wife is the crown of her husband,

But as rottenness in his bones is one that causeth shame.

As Proverbs 11:16 says of אושׁת חן, the p

Many times in life, we are faced with different challenges. This life comes with its own pressures in every sphere. Sometimes, you might seem to have failed in what you want to do. And right there you are. A downcast. A laughing stock. Your friends chose to leave you. Then when you turn around, you find nobody but yourself. This is a typical description of someone who has lost everything or something that he holds dear. What am I saying? There are things that you have to accept. For instance, yo

Daily Devotional: What a Find

Many accuse Christ followers and evangelicals of being narrow minded. In a way, thats true. Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is narrow and the way is constricted that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14 NASB).
