When miners dig for diamonds, they have to have an eye for seeing these precious stones when they are covered with dirt and crusted with other hard surfaces. Miners dig deep holes looking for this precious stone which is formed as a result of years of pressure applied to a lump of coal. It is a colorless stone, and is the hardest mineral known to man.

Everyone seems stressed with all sorts of life challenges and trials. Just this week alone, I was in State Supreme Court and Federal Court with people facing serious situations. Last night, a frantic call came from a former pastor. His wife had just left him. Tomorrow I will meet a young man in his fourth relationship and four children from four different women.

What is entitlement thinking? It is an attitude or a way of looking at life. Those who have this attitude believe that others owe them. They believe they get something because they are owed it and they are entitled to it. They get what they want because of who they are, not because of what they do.

In my travels, I continually meet people who aren't fulfilling their destiny. They appear to be frustrated and without direction. When I talk with these individuals, I usually discover that they are allowing past mistakes to impact their present and determine their future.

There was a young man who was mistreated by his older brothers. They hated him and never spoke a peaceful word to him. Because the brothers envied him and were jealous of him, they made a plan to kill him by putting him into a pit to die. Later some men came along and the brothers sold him to the men to do with him as they pleased.

Our fundamental challenge as believers is conceptual. Our interpretation or misinterpretation of historic principles, experiences and even people influence the nature and dimension of our faith. Since faith comes by hearing, then the quality of our faith depends upon the integrity of the gospel that we hear and believe.

One of the diagnostic tools that I use in my dental office is x-rays. They enable me to see the unseen and to evaluate the oral health status of my patients. What if there were x-rays available for the churches?

A paradox is a statement, belief, or perspective that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense. The prophet Isaiah writes that Divine thoughts are not the same as human thoughts (Isa. 55:6) and the Lord Jesus declares that His kingdom is not of this world (Jn. 16:13).

Paul presents the idea of equity or a return on earthly investment in the Philippian epistle (4:17). Hebrews 13 is a cascade of witnesses who invested their lives with a more glorious return in mind.
