Fire Hydrants and Ill-Considered Tasks
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

A Form of Godliness (2 Timothy 3.5)
'Today's Little Lift' from Jim Bullington

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
The Rat Race

An explanation is necessary for Solomon's reference to death in the verses we read yesterday: "In the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom" (v. 10).

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Save

Save - The Greek word is sozo. In its basic meaning, it carries the idea of rescuing from peril, protecting and keeping alive.

It is certainly a reality in our day that too few men and women are willing to keep the "top side" of their souls open to God and to His light from heaven.
