Words to the Wealthy

Words to the Wealthy (from James 5)

What words does James have to say to the wealthy? In James 5:1-6 we see some of the roughest and most condemning verses in the Bible. Does James 5 have any relevance to us? If so, why? And if it does, what does it teach us? James 5:1-6: “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for […]

Pursuing Jesus in College

How can you keep pursuing Jesus in college? This summer I will be graduating from George Mason University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing.

Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb?

Is there meaning to this madness? Is it just a rat race and then nothing but a cold, silent, and rotten end? Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb? An inscription that will inevitably fade with the passage of time? Seneca Said, “When you see a man often wearing the robe of […]

We’re Listening… To Something.

We all listen to something.  We all listen to something. Or we all get our idea of what we should do, be, and care about from somewhere. Whether Cosmo Magazine, the Wishbone app, Ask.fm, whatever you watch on Netflix, or whatever is said on Snapchat through BuzzFeed. Should we listen to Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon, […]
