Christian Character: Love


“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho…” Thus begins what is probably the most famous parable in the entire ministry of Jesus. The Parable of the Good Samaritan teaches us so many things, but above everything else it teaches us what love really looks like. It teaches us that how you treat your […]

Christian Character: Self-Sacrifice


Genesis 44 contains a story that every Christian should read and apply. I know. We typically don’t look at Old Testament stories as examples of Christian character, and for good reason.
