SB: Rebuilding Our Towers Upon the Rock

I’ve talked about my experience with computers because it is a small but clear picture of what we, as human beings, are all doing, whether we acknowledge it or not. And that is, we are all searching for that one solid foundation — a super-stable and super-dependable operating system, so to speak — on which to build our lives.More

Leaving the past behind… yet again

For the past several days I’ve been hard at work: 1) doing my laundry (about three weeks worth of dirty clothes), and 2) cleaning and reorganizing my room. Of course, I have an excuse for the first: I’ve been very busy setting up my blogs & sites, so that I can come back to blogging.…More

To seek to be blessed is not wrong

I’ve come across a meme on Facebook that claims a quote from a certain preacher. The message is this: It is idolatry to follow Christ for the sake of a better life; instead we should follow him for his own sake (and not for the blessings he can give us), because he’s worthy. I can’t…More

SB: Rising Up Again From the Pain

To live our lives so that we don’t regret anything — this is what some people believe in. And yet, regret is not just that feeling of sorrow or despair over something that we should have or shouldn’t have done. It is also that pain over some wrongs that have been done to us. I…More
