The Donkey and the Colt

I’ve started creating short video meditations on Biblical themes, and I now have a YouTube channel. My first video focused on the theme of sparrows, and now here is one on donkeys. Having studied donkeys closely, I have a new appreciation for them. And how interesting that donkeys carry a cross on their back. WhenContinue reading “The Donkey and the Colt”

Into the Hands of a Woman

She said, “I will surely go with you; nevertheless, the honor shall not be yours on the journey that you are about to take, for the Lord will sell Sisera into the hands of a woman.” Then Deborah arose and went with Barak to Kedesh.Judges 4:9 I deliberately didn’t mention the verse above in yesterday’s post because itContinue reading “Into the Hands of a Woman”

God tells us over and over again how far we have fallen but also how much He loves us and will save and restore us as His Church through the perfect work of JesusContinue reading “The (Dis)Honour of Women in Judges”
