Where Is The Love?

We’re not very good at this love thing, are we? I’m not talking about loving our family, our spouses, our children, or our friends, because we do love them, albeit imperfectly. It’s this “love your neighbour” thing we get so wrong all the time. The literal next-door neighbour we don’t know because our walls are …

Love Wins (But Not The Way You Think)

I wasn’t going to write about the US Supreme Court’s decision on legalising same sex marriage. I’m not American and have little interest in American politics. Besides, same sex marriage has been legal in South Africa for many years so it’s hardly a new issue for us. I don’t particularly want to write just another …

A Submissive Wife? Me?

I submit to my husband every day. Not in a 50 Shades of Grey kind of way. Not in an oppressive, anti-feminist way either. Submission in our marriage is a daily choice to put my husband in his God-given role as the head of our family. It is not about control, subjugation or weakness, but …

Beloved – Love Each Other

“This is my command: love each other.” – John 15:17 We’ve spoken about God’s great love for us, and how we are called to love Him with all our heart, soul and mind. Today we look at His command for us to love each other. “How do you know Mommy and Daddy love you?” I …

Beloved – Love the Lord

“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind.” – Matthew 22:37 Yesterday we spoke about how big God’s love for us is. Today we see how we are supposed to love him. “Do you remember how much God loves you?” I asked. “A lot!” shouted …

Beloved – Beyond the Clouds

Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. – Psalm 36:5 “How high can you stretch?” I asked the girls. “Can you reach heaven?” We all stretched as high as we could, but didn’t come close to touching the clouds. I asked them how wide they …
