Based on the writings of David Berg

Some people use parts of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, where He said to “resist not evil”, to advocate that all Christians should be PACIFISTS, and that even in the face of an onslaught of anti-God, atheistic enemies, should do nothing. There is no doubt that we should obey Christ’s commandments, but it would be wise to first study His Words carefully so that we can know exactly HOW He wishes us to APPLY them to our INDIVIDUAL lives,[...] read more

Based on the writings of David Berg

Foolishness, at best, is a sort of casual joking around and just generally acting silly. It can seem harmless and innocent, just a way of letting off steam, but it often leads to ridiculous and thoughtless, absurd behavior. People caught up in a foolish spirit will often do or say just about anything to get attention or to make others laugh, including even mischievous pranks and harmful acts. “It is as SPORT (fun) for a fool to do MISCHIEF.”–Proverbs[...] read more

A boy once asked his father, “Dad, how do wars begin?”

“Well, take the First World War,” said his father. “That got started when Germany invaded Belgium.”

The husband drew himself up with an air of superiority and snapped back, “Are you answering the question or am I?”

Turning her back upon him[...] read more

Everything was perfect for Adam in the Garden of Eden! Everything except…what it was he couldn’t quite find words to describe. He certainly had no complaints. God had lovingly provided everything for him in this heavenly paradise. Everything was beautiful, wonderful, except…there was this strange empty aching feeling deep inside.

The Lord understood that deep emotion. And He had allowed it to show Adam that he was never going to be truly[...] read more

Based on the writings of David Berg

I spoke a word in anger
To one who was my friend.
Like a knife it cut him deeply,
A wound that was hard to mend.

That word, so thoughtlessly uttered,
I wish we could both forget,
But its echo lives and memory gives
The recollection yet.

A Christian writer relates the following true story: “During early childhood I had a fiery temper which often caused me to say and do unkind things in the heat of anger.

“One day, after I had bawled out one of my[...] read more

(Excerpts of a letter written to some missionaries in training.)

Members of any missionary team should be prayerfully chosen for their proven, self-sacrificial love for the lost; their close spiritual link with the Lord; and their tested ability to be led by Him in major decisions in the absence of earthly counselors or supervisors. They should also demonstrate a loving concern for their coworkers and those to whom they minister, and be able to get along with them. And of[...] read more

If the Lord has called you to a foreign field of service, it is important to learn the language of the land. You can’t very well tell people that you love them if you haven’t made the slightest attempt to learn their language, customs, culture, history, religion, characteristics, nationality traits, etc., which are all a part of them. You can hardly hope to understand them fully or reach them effectively without showing a genuine loving interest in who they are and what[...] read more
