Pray for Gaza

gaza.jpgPlease join me and others in praying for Gaza. The situation there continues to be filled with tension and violence.  As Christians, we must remember that many of the Palestinian people are Christians; our own brothers and sisters in the Lord. Even as we continue to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6), let us also “remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering” (Hebrews 13:3).

Here is a video from a friend of mine who works with the Bible Society in the Holy Land.

Kevin Durant’s MVP Mom

I began my message this past weekend by mentioning Kevin Durant’s 2014 MVP acceptance speech. Particularly, I highlighted how the sacrificial love of his mother helped him transcend his circumstances and become more than he imagined. You can watch the entire speech or simply jump ahead to see him talk about his mom at 23:29.

Who is your example of sacrificial love?
