Out With the Old, In With the New

by Kevin Harrington

     When I was growing up, summer was my favorite time of the year. There was no school, we played outside all day, and I got to stay up late. However, as I’ve grown older and no longer have my summers off, I have grown to really love spring. All winter we stare at […]

He Is Risen

by Kevin Harrington

     Today is the day the world celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Churches will hold special masses; people will perform special plays and sing special songs. I’ve been seeing crosses with purple sashes on them all around town. Today and Christmas are known as the most special religious holidays in the modern world. […]

Pride: A Reason for Concern

by Kevin Harrington

 Do you have false pride? Do you have an exaggerated self-esteem based on ungodly standards? If you answered yes, you probably don’t. If you answered no, you might. Pride blinds us to our faults. And even if we happen to become aware of faults, pride won’t allow us to admit them. The apostle Paul strongly […]

L.E.A.D.E.R.S.H.I.P.

by Kevin Harrington

     This country is very familiar with different styles of leadership. Over the short history of this country, we have been through 44 changes to our presidency (43 different men), we have had many military leaders, Congress leaders, state leaders, and the list can go on and on. Sometimes we are against our leaders […]

Be Thou My Vision

by Kevin Harrington

  There is always one question that is asked of little children while they are growing up: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Sometimes the answers are comical and sometimes they just mimic what their parents already do. I remember even at a young age, I just wanted to help people. […]

After the announcement, he and the whole community went to the young woman’s home. Her father would come outside and then, in front of the whole community, the father and […]

Growing Spiritually Closer to God’s Family

by Kevin Harrington

We have all heard the sermons and read the verses in the Bible that talk about how God’s saved are to become a family. When baptized, we become a member of the Lord’s church (1 Cor. 12:12-13), we become unified with Christ and with His body (Gal. 3:27), and we become a member of the […]

Marrying Someone Who Is Not A Strong Christian

by Kevin Harrington

Many young Christians do not see the heartache and difficulty that they add to a marriage when they marry someone who is not a strong Christian. Mom’s and Dad’s need to teach the importance of finding a mate who will help them get to Heaven. Some have married a Christian, but the one that they […]

Marriage As God Designed It

by Kevin Harrington

People pay good money to have a professional designer come into their home and tell them what color to paint the walls, where to hang pieces of art, and how to arrange their furniture. “Design” shows are all the rage right now on TV. What would you pay for a “designer” to come into your […]

Worshiptainment!

by Kevin Harrington

Yes, it’s a made up word. You won’t find it in any dictionary. As I type this, I am staring at the squiggly red line that let’s me know a word is misspelled on my computer. Worshiptainment is nowhere to be found in our American language, but it’s everywhere to be found in our American […]
