This Week's Featured Story

Title:  I Am Not a Role Model, but I Know the One Who Is

Description:

What a whirlwind week this has been.  Just last Sunday the USWNT (United States Women’s National Team) won the World Cup in soccer.  Since then the team has been coast to coast, appearing in ticker tape parades, ESPY awards ceremony, on Good Morning America and late night talk shows.  Their victory was impressive, as they were clearly the best women’s soccer team in the world.  I watched every game, cheering on their success throughout the tournament.  They were playing for my country and they won.

Their success has given them an world platform to advocate for social issues. They have not backed down from this opportunity.  You can’t open your Facebook page without some reference to the USWNT’s platform.

Thirdly, for young girls across our nation they may be looked at as role models.  This is a complicated issue.  Their hard work helped them achieve on the world stage.  The complicating question, however, is do we look at them as role models for how to live life?  That depends on what the standard is for being a role model.  We know that no human being can possibly live a perfect life.  So, our ultimate role model is Jesus Christ, the only One who will ever live a perfect life.

This devotion suggests three things:

  1. While the women were victorious in the 2019 World Cup, Jesus was the victory over a much tougher opponent.
  2. I would like to suggest that we compare the social issues to biblical principles.  Our culture often has the wrong idea of what is right and at times we are headed in the wrong direction.  If the issue aligns with the Bible it is worthy of our support.
  3. I would also suggest that you appreciate people who inspire you to be more like Jesus, but put your stock in Jesus as your role model.

Purpose of this Devotional Website

We live in a complicated world.  The life that God wants us to live is far different than what the world accepts as appropriate behavior.  The world is much different today than when Jesus walked the earth.  Yet, God's Word never changes.

As my own personal ministry I write devotional stories for use in today's contemporary times.  They use settings and examples that are in the news and our world today.  It is my goal to apply God's timeless teachings and commandments to show how they apply to us today.  I try to present the faith lessons in a non-threatening way but with a clear biblical basis.

Each week I add a new story to the library of devotional stories.  I hope you can utilize them as a personal devotion or in a group setting.

If you would like to receive the most recent stories as they are written there is a section on the home page for you to provide your email address.  I generally email them each weekend.

The stories on this website are not copyrighted.  Feel free to share them with others.  The goal is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with as many people as we can.  Join me in this ministry.
