La Escritura nos instruye categóricamente a comprometernos en el matrimonio hasta que la muerte nos separe. La Escritura condena el divorcio rápido y fácil. La Escritura nos conecta con el poder del Espíritu para sanar las heridas producidas por el pecado y cambiar el comportamiento. La Escritura nos dice que el amor todo lo espera, todo lo soporta. Pero a veces el lazo matrimonial se rompe por la traición. Jesús mismo, cuando advierte contra el divorcio mal intencionado, concede una... Read More

At age 15, Frank Abagnale started his six-year stint as a con man. (The movie Catch Me if You Can is based on his life story.) When he was 16, he posed as a pilot, passed the bar exam, masqueraded as a doctor, and became a master at forging checks and embezzling. After being caught at age 21, he spent six years in prison. He was paroled with the condition that he would turn his life around, using his powers... Read More

Last week was a week of milestones for my family. My youngest graduated from eighth grade, and my oldest graduated from high school. My friends and I were mentally preparing ourselves for how much we would cry. We all spent a few minutes (or hours) looking at baby pictures and school photos, recalling all the good memories.  Because it’s graduation season, I know there’s a whole bunch of parents in the same emotionally melancholy boat right now, wishing we could...

¿Alguna vez ha tratado de inducir a otra persona para que cambie un comportamiento pernicioso? Aparentemente, eso es imposible, ¿no le parece? Las personas se resisten al cambio y tienden a retroceder cuando se sienten empujadas por otra persona. Parece imposible lograr que otra persona deje de fumar, que deje de vivir en adulterio o que deje de gastar el dinero en billetes de lotería y máquinas de juegos. De la misma manera, puede parecer imposible reavivar la fe fría... Read More

If you live in a part of our country where there is winter—I mean real winter, with snow and ice and subzero temps—one of the sweet rituals of spring is the sheer pleasure of opening the windows of your house. It is so wonderful to let the fresh air in and the stale air out. We drag the rugs outside and shake and beat five months of dust out into the free air. Carpets get shampooed and floors scrubbed. Everything... Read More

¿Quién creo que soy? Debo estar pensando que soy el comandante supremo del universo. Quiero todo para mí, y lo quiero ahora mismo. Es bueno tener un plan y avanzar en la vida; es bueno soñar en grande y no conformarse con las cosas como están, pero me molesta mucho que otras personas esperen que yo me acomode a sus propósitos. Entonces, ¿por qué les hago yo eso a otras personas? Señor, tú sabes que yo soy muy ingrato. Quiero... Read More

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” (John 15:13). Nothing is free. A buy one get one free dinner means the restaurant is willing to take 50 percent for two meals. A free day off of work means the company is willing to absorb the loss of your hours. When you consider that, what’s free to you actually has a cost. It makes a difference in your perception, doesn’t it? That’s why... Read More

I’m a husband, and I’m a father. Like many men, I feel it’s my duty to fix whatever is broken in our home. Unfortunately, I’m not very handy, but I try my best. In most cases, I end up calling my dad or a mechanic to finish the job. The problem is, I don’t always restrict my “duty of fixing” to washers and dryers and sinks. I feel it’s my duty to fix the people in my home as well. ... Read More

Una de las mejores historias de Sherlock Holmes de Sir Arthur Conan Doyle se titula “La Liga de los Pelirrojos”. Un hombre de pelo rojo llameante fue contratado para ir a una oficina a copiar a mano la Enciclopedia Británica día tras día por un atractivo salario. Pero resultó que ese "trabajo" no tenía sentido: un criminal lo había contratado solo para sacarlo de su casa con el fin de cavar un túnel desde el sótano hasta la bóveda de... Read More
When can I get the glory?

Getting all the glory means taking the stage, along with the spotlights, away from every other performer. The audience focuses nowhere else, and the world stops just for a moment. It could be a masterful solo piece during a concert or a thunderous alley-oop dunk during a NBA playoff game. The gospel writer John announces, “We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).... Read More
