We Are All Seekers

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,  then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,  not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Philippians 2:1-4 (NIV)

I Want It So Bad – Maybe Too Bad!

You Can Trust Him

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8-11 (ESV)

We Need God’s Wisdom

There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to death. Proverbs 14:12 (NIV)

Do not forget the lessons you have learned, do not live in the moments you learned them. Do not live in the past, learn from it! To accomplish this we need God’s wisdom not our assumptions to sort through life’s experiences.

I Am Ananias and Sapphira

For those of you who have not been following my “I Am ______” series; I know I am Dave Peever. I have not had some sort of disconnect from reality, I know that I am not three people, Ananias, Sapphira and Dave Peever. While my awareness of reality and mental stability is hopefully reassuring let me give you a real scare; I am Ananias and Sapphira!
