While parents continue to love their children no matter what, they cannot escape those occasions when wills clash, rebellion reaches an impasse, and things get downright impossible. The result? Harsh words and ugly reactions as parents stand their ground and sons and daughters react in stubborn defiance, refusing to back down. This is one of those times when the fun stops for parents.
In our shame-prone culture, parents, bosses, teachers, and many pastors consciously or subconsciously urge people to connect their significance to what they produce. How much better to respect and honour others—even when they fail to measure up to expectations, or “blow it” big time!
Every family has headaches and heartaches. Because human depravity runs deep, it is impossible to rear our children from infancy to independence without encountering times that call for straight talk and tough love. While we love our children no matter what, parents cannot escape those occasions when wills clash, rebellion reaches an impasse, and things get downright impossible.
A hero is someone who is admired for his achievements, noble qualities, and courage. This definition isn’t limited to dads—even if you’ve never heard it, moms and dads, you are your children’s heroes.
In this intriguing message, Pastor Chuck Swindoll searches the Scriptures and addresses deep and hard-hitting questions about heaven and hell. Listen as he delves into topics including God’s wrath and mercy, those who’ve never heard the Gospel, out-of-body experiences, and the death of the very young.
You can’t serve two masters. Placing Jesus before your relationships, your work, and your possessions puts everything in a whole new perspective.
Chuck Swindoll didn’t own his first car. He spent so much time polishing it the car actually owned him! So often we get caught up in appearances and forget to enjoy ourselves.
During His earthly life and ministry, Jesus taught clearly about both heaven and hell. In the passage we'll consider in this message, He brought both to the surface in an amazing story we cannot forget.
Death. The topic is strewn with the litter of fear, ignorance, denial, and superstition. For many, death is viewed as an unsolvable mystery, a vague departure from this life that leaves those who remain disillusioned and confused.
How big is your God? Chuck Swindoll asks us to consider this question as he begins this new series. We’re learning to pray big, audacious prayers to the God of limitless possibilities.
