  • The Gift of the Magi

    ornaments goldGod is not served by human hands as though he needed anything (Acts 17:25). The gifts of the magi are not given by way of assistance or need-meeting. It would dishonor a monarch if foreign visitors came with royal care-packages.

    Nor are these gifts meant to be bribes. Deuteronomy 10:17 says that God takes no bribe. Well, what then do they mean? How are they worship?

  • Twin Calves

    picture of cowA farmer's cow gave birth to twin bull calves. The farmer was delighted as bull calves are worth more than a cow calf.  Since he had two he decided to sell one for the work of the Lord once it was fully grown.

    However one of the calves soon grew sick, and then sicker until one day the farmer came into the house one day looking sad.

    He looked at his wife and said, "You'll never guess what's just happened? The Lord's calf is dead!"
