5. What is Keeping You Away From Success?
In every social structure, whether it be family, town, county or
state, there are "The boys down at the stable." They are the jealous
ones. They are too scared to try something different. They show
their ignorance by laughing at those who do. Learn to recognize them
for what they are. Don't let them hurt you. It takes a certain
amount of toughness to succeed. One has to rise above those who
would tear you down so that they can laugh and say, "I told you so!" ...
6. Featured: The Works of God and the Worship of Jesus
No matter what mess you're in or what pain you're in, the causes of that
mess and that pain are not decisive in explaining it. What is decisive
in explaining it is God's purpose. Yes, there are causes. Some of them
your fault, perhaps, and some of them not. But those causes are not
decisive in determining the meaning of your mess or your pain. What is
absolutely decisive is God's purpose. ...
7. For Judgment I Came into This World

Jesus put saliva on his eyes and placed his hands upon him. "Can you see

on the man's eyes once more, Jesus restored the blind man's sight. And
he walked away seeing clearly. ...
9. Orthodox Man as The Image of God
The Word of God was made the Son of man in order that man might become
God. He had to become all things to all man except sin. So, He comes as
the perfect image of God and He gives us the possibility of restoring
this likeness to God within ourselves. ...
10. When You Feel Like You're Not Enough
When we focus our thoughts on ourselves and how inadequate we feel, or
what others think about us and how we're performing, we cast a shadow of
doubt in our minds by blocking the light of God's Truth in our hearts. ...
11. Recipe for Chorukka (Bitter) for Good Friday
12. Family Special: What We See in Each Other
Like Samuel, we often make judgments based on what people look like. But
God doesn't use looks as his criteria. He evaluates people by what's in
their hearts. He sees their character, their faithfulness and their
commitment to him. ...
