Lowly, and Sitting on a Donkey (January-February 2015) Jesus Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem just days before His death is a highlight of His ministry. He rode into the city that day on a donkey rather than on a horse, as we would tend to expect of a king.

The Sin of Hypocrisy (March-April 2015) No one wants to be called "two-faced," but
we cannot deny that we have all played the
hypocrite from time to time. Whether we
have professed one thing and done another

good character. Well does Scripture exhort
us to beware hypocrisy.
The Value of Wisdom (May-June 2015) Several passages of scripture compare

person's life. Through wisdom, a Christian
has the means to make correct decisions.
