Words can kill churches because they often have deadly actions behind them. As we begin this new year, please allow me to share six statements that I have heard from church members whose churches have died.

Grow by Setting Specific Goals

God wants us to grow continuously. Parents are pleased when their children grow well. When a child ceases to grow the heart of the parents aches. Whenever parents see their beloved children not grow to their full potential, they become distressed.

Tracing the Framework

As the oldest son in the family, I attended a Chinese school in Korea for kindergarten and a year in elementary school. My father was a school teacher, and I attended this Chinese school right in front of my home for his own fulfillment of a dream for me to get a jump start on my education.

Start Anew with God

When you start a New Year, it is important to greet and start the New Year with whom. How you start can also determine how you finish. Goethe said, “Once you have missed the first buttonhole you’ll never manage to button up.” It is a short maxim but it is the wisdom that comes from the experience of a long life. Whatever you do, it is important to start well.

A Good Start is Half the Battle

Last Christmas, my daughter received a book for a gift from her older sister and brother. When realizing that her gift was a book as she was opening it, she exclaimed with joy. I also exclaimed with joy as well after seeing my daughter becoming so excited over a book.

Have You Received This Kind of Gift for Christmas?

What thoughts come to your mind when you hear of the country name ‘Afghanistan’? I still think of Taliban in a barren desert with guns in tow training to become terrorists. I tried to erase that image with the thought that missions must continue in that country, but I was truly humbled as I was reading a letter from a missionary who has traveled over 60 times to Afghanistan since 2003 and, for over 13 years, ministering to the country’s starved and poor.

Humble Jesus Who Was Born in a Manger

The hero of Christmas is Jesus. We learn the humility of Jesus through the birth of Jesus. The first Adam was prideful. The root of the original sin is in pride. The pride of a man desiring to be like God made him eat the fruit of the good and evil.

Five Unique Christmas Gifts for Your Pastor and Church Staff

A farmer gave our family a basket of corn from his harvest. It meant a lot. We were struggling financially, so the gift of food really helped. But, even more, it was an act of love from a hardworking man. I appreciated his heart as much as I appreciated the physical gift.

When We Pray, God Sends Us Angels

Prayer is a mysterious world. It is a spiritual world. It is a high dimensional world. When Christmas comes, we think of Jesus, Mary, and an angel who brought good news. Also we think of the prayer of Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist. Luke 1 begins with the story of the birth of John the Baptist.

The Spirituality of Waiting

When December comes, we wait for Christmas. Christmas is the day when Jesus was born. People waited for Jesus, the Savior. Jesus came to this earth after a long wait. Christmas is the day when Jesus visited us. Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, came down to this earth from heaven.
