“Friend, I am not cheating you! Did you not agree with me for the usual daily wage?”
You’ve been working for this landscaper for five summers now. You’re going back to school in a few weeks and you’ve asked for extra hours. The owner assures you he will do what he can. But one day a new guy shows up and starts work — and the possibility of your working extra hours is out. “Guy’s wife just got laid off,” your boss says, introducing him. “I’m trying to help him and his family by taking him on for a few hours a week.” So much for loyalty, you think.
The task of taking care of your elderly parent falls pretty much on you. Your brothers and sisters live a distance away. They all call from time to time to see how Mom is doing and express their concern, but none of them are in any position to provide the necessary day-to-day help. “They all have problems of their own,” Mom says, “I just thank God for you.” Then mom dies and they all show up, grieving as if they’ve been there all along.

ProLifeCorner- Editor- A friend recently sent a link to the video below. I had the opportunity to watch it this morning and I found it very revealing. The gentleman who presented this video on the new atheism was originally from India, and in my opinion did an excellent job in his presentation. If you have a son or daughter in college or planning to go to college, I strongly suggest that you watch this video together as a family in order to prepare them for the attacks they will receive on their faith, not only in school but in all aspects of society.
As adults we, too, must be educated to the ways of the new atheism. The wisdom and sophistication of the attacks on Christianity are straight from the lips of Satan.
During this Christmas season do not allow Satan to steal your joy. May the love and joy of our Lord Jesus be with you and your families.
