Everyone has a passion, though not everyone knows what it is. 

A young apple tree knew her passion.  She just wanted to touch one of the stars she could see twinkling in the night sky.  Any one of them would satisfy her curiosity.  She asked God, who she calls Papa, for help.

Papa lovingly told her to wait.  So she asked the oak tree next to her for help.  She saw that Oak's tall branches held up the stars in the night sky.  Apple was simply too short.  Surely he could bring her a star!  But Oak just teased her, like her desire was silly.

Night after night, Apple longed to hold a star.  Papa always heard her plea, and came down from Heaven to tell her to wait a little longer.  Papa corrected Apple one night.  "Oak doesn't hold up the stars, that is my job!" God said.  Apple's frustration melted into thought about what Papa and Oak said.  But it was difficult to understand.   

Oak couldn't help Apple.  He just enjoyed teasing her, so Apple met new friends who showed her ways to play the day away.  At night, Apple still wanted to touch a star and she was still too short.  Papa wanted her to wait, but wait for what?  Apple just couldn't figure it out.  Would she eventually grow tall enough to reach the stars herself? 

Then one night there were no stars in the sky.  "What was happening?"  Would Apple EVER get to hold her star?

The Nativity - A King is Born
An Advent Companion

Count down the days of Christmas with even more insight into the Christmas story. From Zacharias to the Wise Men. Seek the Christ child. Why?

People are desperate for the truth. With so much lying and misinformation today, wouldn’t it be great to have truth you can depend on? When people know truth, they can stand firm on that—no matter what. Regardless of what others may think about Christians, it’s not about a religion, it’s all about a relationship. God wants to have a relationship with you!

"Christmas Incarnation.  How Will You Put Your Ten Minas to Work?"

How long does it take for kids to understand the true meaning of Christmas? Ten year old Cassie decided to do something different for Christmas this year. While every kid loves receiving gifts—doesn’t everyone—especially at Christmas, a recent sermon bothered Cassie.

Jesus said in Matthew 20:25-28, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give His life as a ransom for many.”

"Bethlehem Star Guides Wise Men from Afar." 

When kids are hustled in the car to go on an extended trip with a parent, or grandparent, provisions are made beforehand. The child must have a way to entertain himself—or herself—in the car, and at day’s end. Safe travel must be provided. Sometimes, the parent invites the child’s buddy, or sibling, so that the child won’t get too bored playing alone.

This was the case for ten year old Shimei. But his Dad didn’t bring a friend along on their journey across rivers and through the desert. His Dad was preoccupied with following a star.

FAMILY DRAMA:  "The First Family's Historical Sin Legacy of Train-Wrecked Lives, Only Redeemed by Jesus Christ"

This book throws the dart in the bull’s eye of nailing who began sin—Satan. Satan is the root cause of all evil. He’s not to be trusted. He’s a liar, and the father of lies. His whole purpose is to alienate God’s children—of whom he’s extremely jealous—away from God. He is frantic today because after Jesus’ resurrection from the dead defeated him, Satan knows that his time will run out.

Speaking of sin, when did it start? Where did it start? We know who started sin, but why?

FAMILY DRAMA:  "Jacob Wrestling God and Happy Tears Reunion.

Jacob was drama king in his family. His relationships with his brother Esau, and his Dad, Isaac usually went smoothly enough, since his and Esau’s pursuits were so different. One day confrontation began. “Sell me your birthright for some stew” Jacob bribed famished Esau to give up his rightful inheritance. And later, “Here’s the food you requested before giving me your blessing” Jacob said, purposefully deceiving Isaac.

Was Jacob to blame?
