“Curse God and Die!”


Those were the words of Job’s wife, desperate to end her husband’s greatest trial. But even after losing all that he had and being stricken with boils from head to toe, Job retained his integrity and did not “sin with his lips” (Job 2:10).

But in the end, the Spirit of God left Saul and he died a humiliating death (1 Sam. 31:31:4, 8, 9). Why did the Holy Spirit do this and how can we keep Him from leaving us in the last days?

Life Lesson from a Shopping Cart


I walk down a very steep hill on the way home. At the bottom of it laid a shopping cart from Target, stuck in the mud. For years, it laid there and endured the rain, ice, and heat of the seasons. I said to myself before Passover that I was going to get that cart out of there. But Passover came and went and the cart was still in its unenviable position.
