“I have helped people learn about You. They have obeyed Your Word. They believe that You sent Me. I am praying for those who believe that I came from You.
“They will still be in the world after I come back to You. Keep them in Your Name and let them be close friends, like You and I are. I…

An elder said, “Just as a tree cannot bear fruit if it is often transplanted, so neither can a monk bear fruit if he frequently changes his abode.” In an age when people change addresses as often as those of past generations changed their socks, stability of place is almost unheard of.

When I was a young man I moved from city to city quite often. One year alone I lived in New York City; Berkley, California; and Portland, Oregon. If I hated a job, I’d move. If my social life was on the rocks, I’d move. Reinventing myself in a new location became the norm. In my attempt to discovery my place in this world, I couldn’t…

Enduring Trials: Without Suffering, the Cross Cannot Be Embraced

In comparison to eternity, the trials we suffer in this life are but a blip on the meter. Many are suffering job loss, illnesses, mortgage foreclosures, and all kinds of strife and hardships. Yet if we look at all these difficulties in light of eternity, this time of trial is nothing. In Romans 8:18, we read: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us.”

When we are free, there are no battles. Life is a constant battle with the material world. If you understand the tension that takes places on the spiritual level between that which is transitory and that which is eternal, you are better prepared for this spiritual warfare.

Many years ago I had totally given myself over to the acquisition of material things. My position placed me in a field where most everyone around me, both colleagues and friends, judged success by what we owned, who we knew, where we vacationed, the car we drove, the clothes we wore, the restaurants we frequented.
