The foolish one.....

“Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right? As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled on the way, or your adversary may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”  Luke 12:57-59   We will all one day stand before “The” magistrate—-God Almighty.  Better to be reconciled now (i.e. “on the the way”) than to stand before God guilty. Or adversary is Satan himself and he would love to see us stand before God guilty as charged, after all, “misery enjoys company”.   And...

Serious about prayer........

“Then Jesus said to them, ‘Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread;  a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’  And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’  I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.  “So I say to you: Ask and it...

6 Ways Our Kids Can Make the Most of their Camp Experience

Is your child ready for summer camp? If so, then you are just as excited as we are here at The Vineyard Camp to meet our campers of 2020. Sending our kids to camp may the best present you could offer them. You are giving something invaluable, something that can help them become the best version of themselves when they grow up to become adults. One important question we get from the parents prior to camp is this—how can my kid make the most of his/ her days there or even after that?     Being one with nature. Let’s face it—most of our kids nowadays seldom get the chance to get tuned with their outside surroundings. Remember us being...

The gift from God......

“I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.”  Ecclesiastes 3:10-13  These words are from the wisest man (Solomon) that ever lived. I think that they are true words to live by in these very uncertain times.  Now is a good time to think about how God “wired” us when He created us and what will truly make us “happy”.  From all that Solomon says, we should carefully rethink what fuels or souls.  And it’s pretty simple really, it has to do with being content (a) food and drink, and...

A father proud of his son....

At the transfiguration Jesus is seen by Peter, James and John with Moses and Elijah. Somehow the three disciples knew it was Moses and Elijah, so I suppose Jesus called them by name.   I have wondered why Jesus was with these two men. Why not with Adam, the first man, or Noah, or Enoch, or King David, etc? But if you research this, the answer is interesting: First, the last prophet, Malachi, to ever prophesy said this in Malachi 4:5-6 “See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes.  He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents….”. This...
