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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

One Month Down

by Kevin Harrington

Can you believe that January is almost over? It seems like just yesterday when we were counting down the seconds left in 2014 and eagerly awaiting the start of 2015. Well, we’ve now had almost an entire month in 2015. How are those resolutions coming along? Are the diets already ruined? When was the last […]

What Does It Matter?

by Kevin Harrington

“It’s nobody else’s business how I live…”      This claim has sure become a popular catch phrase today. You hear it almost every day. It is often said as an excuse for immoral, self-destructive, selfish behavior. Strangely, people don’t say, “It’s nobody else’s business how I live” when they are generous, righteous, and helpful. The […]

The New Me

by Kevin Harrington

This past Thursday we all rang in the New Year. On Wednesday we were all trying to fit in the “lasts” of 2014. The last hamburger before the diet began. The last lazy day before the exercise program starts. Then, as we watched the ball drop, we watched 2014 disappear. It’s amazing how time flies. […]
