Longing for more…

“Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.” Psalm 105:4 What pursuit can be higher than that? If you have sought the Highest “thing”, how will you not be able to get every other thing (no matter how high they seem before the world)? My soul’s configuration is to seek the Highest. To […]

You can benefit from criticism

Have you ever wondered why it is so easy for you to criticize others and it is so difficult to receive criticism? Human nature naturally prefers praise to correction. It is the way we are. Yet, there is no real growth without correction, you know, optimistic criticism. Or call it discipline!  Oh yes, there is […]
