Public school homeschooling is not working

My grandson is one of the millions of students doing online public school from home. He told me it’s not working out so well. As a high school sophomore, he missed his final months of his freshman year, and now is trying to navigate even tougher courses without the in-face interaction with teachers and students. For my grandson, he needs that structure, that kind of on-the-spot accountability, and the routine that his parents are trying so hard to establish during these homestretch years of adolescence....More

Kroger Fires Christian Employees Who Refused to Wear LGBT Rainbow, U.S. Suit Says

An Arkansas Kroger store violated federal anti-discrimination law when it reportedly fired two employees who refused to wear LGBT-themed aprons due to their religious beliefs, according to a lawsuit filed Monday by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

According to the Miami Herald, a dress code by the Conway, Ark., grocery store required employees to wear a rainbow-colored heart emblem on the bib of the apron. The women “believed the emblem endorsed LGBTQ values and that wearing it would violate their religious beliefs,” the EEOC said in a news release summarizing the suit.

Kroger disciplined the two women and eventually fired them, an action that...More

This Isn’t a 'Lost Year'

Buzzfeed News is running a series of feature stories this month called “The Lost Year,” featuring profiles of how six people, of different ages and backgrounds have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The stories range from challenging to even, in some cases, devastating.

Still, the title of this series is, I think, misleading. Is this really a “lost” year? Is there even such a thing?

In the 17th Chapter of Acts, Luke describes what looks like, at first glance, a pause in Paul’s missionary efforts. After being run out of, first, Thessalonica and then Berea, Paul is stuck in Athens, waiting for Silas and Timothy to catch up. However, Luke describes Paul not as “impatient,” but as “greatly distressed” by the pornographic, violent, and quite extensive idol worship all around him in the city of Athens....More

Facebook pulls political ad blasting Biden, Democrats’ support for allowing boys in girls-only sports

A conservative group has accused Facebook of censorship after the tech giant removed one of its political ads that's critical of Democratic politicians who support allowing boys who identify as transgender to compete in girls-only sports.

Facebook claims the ad, produced by the American Principles Project, a socially conservative think tank, was pulled for “missing context."

As part of a $4 million ad campaign targeting the swing states of Michigan and Wisconsin ahead of the November election, American Principles Project created three ads, one of which is titled “Not Fair” that slams Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., over their support for the so-called Equality Act, which passed the Democrat-controlled House and would allow biological males who identify as female to compete in girls'-only athletics.

“All female athletes want is a fair shot at competition, at a scholarship, at a title, at victory,” the ad says. “But what if that shot was...More

Christianity wіthоut thе сrоѕѕ: A glоbаl ѕріrіtuаl раndеmіс wоrѕе than COVID-19

Deuteronomy 23:10-14
10 If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp: 11 But it shall be, when evening cometh on, he shall wash himself with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the camp again. 12 Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad: 13 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee: 14 For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.

Our LORD God is holy through and through. He hates iniquity and doesn’t like to behold, hear or perceive it. God created all things. Yet, He is careful not to come into contact with anything that can stain His holiness. The LORD’s holiness can be imagined as being sparkling white. Hence, anything that can stain it, He avoids....More

God Himself was speaking to the Israelites in the scripture above. The Israelites had become weary of Him and He had to make it known to them.

And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison. But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.

A significant but usually unnoticed miracle took place in the scripture being expounded. The angel of the Lord had opened the prison doors, brought forth the apostles and charged them to go and speak the words of this life. Have we ever taken time to examine how this miracle took place and the events that took place afterwards?...More

A Risky Detour

Bible in a Year: Ecclesiastes 10–12, Galatians 1

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season.
2 Timothy 4:2

Today's Scripture & Insight: 2 Timothy 4:1–5

What a waste of time, thought Harley. Her insurance agent was insisting they meet again. Harley knew it would be yet another boring sales pitch, but she decided to make the most of it by looking for an opportunity to talk about her faith.

Noticing that the agent’s eyebrows were tattooed, she hesitantly asked why and discovered that the woman did it because she felt it would bring her luck. Harley’s question was a risky detour from a routine chat about finances, but it opened the door to a conversation about luck and faith, which gave her an opportunity to talk about why she relied on Jesus. That “wasted” hour turned out to be a divine appointment.

Jesus also took a risky detour. While traveling from Judea to Galilee, He went out of His way to speak to a Samaritan, something unthinkable for a Jew. Worse, she was an adulterous woman avoided even by other Samaritans. Yet He ended up having a conversation that led to the salvation of many (John 4:1–26, 39–42).

Are you meeting someone you don’t really want to see? Do you keep bumping into a neighbor you normally avoid? The Bible reminds us to be always ready—“in season and out of season”—to share the good news (2 Timothy 4:2). Consider taking a “risky detour.” Who knows, God may be giving you a divine opportunity to talk to someone about Him today!

By: Leslie Koh

Reflect & Pray
Whom might you meet today? How might there be an opportunity to talk about Jesus? How can you go out of your way to share the good news in a bold but loving, sensitive way?

Jesus, teach me to see the doors You’ve opened for me to share Your love, and give me the courage to tell others about You.

A sinner finds no acceptance with God for...

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:9.10

A sinner finds no acceptance with God for his own achievements, but solely by believing in Jesus Christ. The first chapters of the epistle to the Romans establish this fact clearly, as do today’s verses above. However, what is meant by “With the mouth confession is made unto salvation”?

God wants every Christian to testify his faith freely. The cry of a newborn baby indicates that a new, young life has begun. Similarly, the new birth of a person through faith in Jesus Christ cannot remain concealed.

Whoever has started a new life with the Lord Jesus Christ will share his joy with others. He will tell how much God has done for him (cf. Luke 8:39). He must not, however, count on being understood by all his family and acquaintances. Nevertheless it is good for him to witness frankly for Jesus. Then people will notice that his life’s objective and his standards have changed: Jesus Christ has become his Lord and Saviour. A frank confession of one’s conversion to Christ at the beginning of a life of faith is a great help in getting free from bad influences and habits of the past.

When God grants salvation, it is not only for heaven but also for life on earth. A public confession of Jesus Christ as one’s Lord contributes to the vast scope of salvation that God gives to believers.

Today’s reading: Judges 15:9-20 · 2 Corinthians 13:1-13

God Wants You To Succeed (3)

‘You made them rulers over the works of Your hands; You put everything under their feet.’ Psalm 8:6 NIV

How can you know God wants you to succeed in life? Three reasons:

(1) Because He created you. In Genesis He said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.’ (Genesis 1:26 NKJV) The words ‘image’ and ‘likeness’ are important. Think about it: we sometimes tell a child, ‘You’re the image of your mother/father. You’re just like her/him!’ Because you are God’s supreme creation, He poured into you His mind, His power, His wisdom, and everything else you need to succeed. Once you grasp the truth of that and begin to act on it, your outlook will be transformed. You will start thinking like a ‘no-limit person’.

(2) Because you have worth. Actress Ethel Waters, who used to sing at the Billy Graham crusades, said, ‘I am somebody, ’cause God don’t make no junk!’ As the crowning achievement of God’s creation, you are the object of His attention and affection. The psalmist wrote, ‘How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them.’ (Psalm 139:17–18 NLT)

(3) Because everything God made was for you. ‘You made them rulers over the works of Your hands; You put everything under their feet.’ Does that mean God will simply drop success into your lap? No, ‘God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.”’ (Genesis 1:28 NKJV) God has given you His authority and creative ability to succeed in whatever He calls you to do. So instead of thinking like a victim—start thinking like a victor!

SoulFood: 2 Cor 5–8, Luke 23:1–12, Ps 34, Pro 21:14–16
