No act is insignificant because of two natural principles: the tendency for increase, and what is sown is reaped. These principles play major roles in our lives.
John Ritenbaugh warns that seemingly insignificant things to man are quite big things to God. Some well-meaning individuals, blinded by their pride, vanity, and clever sophistry, consider certain areas of the Bible to have little or no importance. They (1) fail to grasp the spiritual intent of the scriptures and (2) fail to …
Citing a passage in Ann Rule's book, Green River, Running Red, (a book in which the author examines the twisted motivation of the Green River Killer), John Ritenbaugh underscores the principle that disastrous consequences emerge from seemingly insignificant origins such as a rockslide from a tiny pebble or an avalanche from a …
Compromise is a dirty word to a Christian. John Reid shows that big compromises—and eventual apostasy—begins with little compromises.
When Jesus returns, many will be prohibited from entering the Kingdom! They think they know Him, yet they are just using Him to make themselves important.

We have a proclivity to worry about the things that we should not. But worse yet, we have a proclivity not to worry about the things that we should!
Every action has a corresponding reaction; even the little things we do matter. Sin produces increase (the leavening effect) just as righteousness does.

Human nature always wants to break free of those boundaries. Through our entire lives, we need to study diligently to find out what our responsibilities are …
Carelessness, indicative of not thinking, when reinforced or carried on into life, can be lethal or irreparable. Undervaluing our way leads to a careless lifestyle.
Martin Collins, citing Dennis Prager's Town Hall article, Is America Still Making Men?, suggests that there is a profound dearth of real masculine leadership today, as young men seem to be protracting their pubescence, preferring to remain boys with no responsibilities than to embrace leadership roles. When boys fail to grow …
