    Gossip & Slander

    “A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret” (Proverbs 11:12-13).

    The Bible tells us that “a perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends” (Proverbs 16:28).

    Parables of Jesus

    Jesus' parables are short stories that teach a moral or spiritual lesson by analogy or similarity. They are often stories based on the agricultural life that was intimately familiar to His original first century audience.

    Some aspect of an unfamiliar concept, such as the kingdom of God, was compared to something from everyday life that could easily be understood.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    in Christ

    by Maya Angelou

    'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
    that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin''
    I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
    I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
    I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
    I'm ad mitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
    My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
    I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

    When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
    I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!
