Christians don’t have to all think the same
As you may have read in in some of my other columns, like most teenagers, my life has brought me a lot of rejections recently. One of the more surprising ones I faced in the last year was through a faith community, and although I was shocked, I came through it stronger in my faith...

Dare not to compare, live a compassionate life of joy
“I hate to pretend like everything is OK when it isn’t. And when I compare myself to others, I hate that my life is the roughest. I’m just so tired of it all.” Have you ever had those thoughts of comparison, thinking no one has it as bad as you, but still you work at coming...

Wednesday Matters: Everyday Open Eyes
Can you imagine how excited the blind man must have been when after Jesus had rubbed his eyes with mud He could SEE?! Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. How irritating then for him to be questioned by the Pharisees-the Religious Leaders, who only wanted to hear that...

Tuesday Matters: Everyday It’s Personal
Have you ever heard someone say, “I don’t wear my religion on my sleeve or talk about it because it’s personal, it’s private?” Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. I think it’s sad that someone would want to keep private the hope and truth they have in Jesus....

Thursday Matters: Everyday Church
When church stops being about us, it can be about God again. Church is meant to crush our selfishness and church without God does none of that. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. There it is right in Luke 19:10; “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that...

Pride is a difficult problem for us to deal with because it hides. Obadiah 1:3 says Pride deceives us and causes us to think we don’t have it. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. The only way I can have the patience with someone who’s difficult or who hurt me is...
