posted by smcswain

posted by smcswain

Do we all have value? Any worth? Ever felt as if you had none? That you were worthless? “Sometimes,” answered the lady I counseled on a street corner one day, “I feel nothing else.” So this morning, I left the […]

How Do You Grow in Christ?

posted by smcswain

“Be no longer children,” wrote the Apostle Paul, “but grow up in Christ” (Eph. 4:15). All my spiritual life…for as long as I can remember…religious people have sincerely, but mistakenly, exhorted me to “grow up in Christ.” It sounded reasonable. […]

The Three Biggest Questions of Your Life
What are the “3″ biggest questions of your life? 1. Who am I? 2. What Is My Life Purpose? 3. What is My Life Plan? I’ve been thinking about these three questions a great deal lately. I’m giving the keynote week after next at the Indiana Aviation Association’s annual conference at the B
