Game Over, Press Restart

By Edwin D. Arceo If only life can be as easy as a video game. You go through life as if you’re invincible and when you make a mistake and “die,” and then it’s Game Over, you just press Restart. It’s like when you get so tired of everyday discouragements, frustrations, and conflicts that sap your energy.

  By Dr. Harold Sala Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.  Jeremiah 1:5 Do you ever feel like you stand alone, misunderstood and out of step with your colleagues?  When people say, “Come on, everybody does it; why can’t you, as well?”  You aren’t sure what to answer.  The fact that you won’t pad your expense account, or be unfaithful to your mate, convicts those who know it’s wrong but haven’t the moral courage to do what is...
