I never discriminated or judged anyone based on their religion and/or race until that tragic day and the weeks that followed. At 10-years old, I loaded up on the information being shared by the local news stations about what the terrorists looked like, and how they could be potentially lurking in various parts of the city. After moving to Ohio, I experienced racism for the first time, which opened my eyes on my own ignorance. Eventually, I became brave enough to encounter the “enemy.”

    People with heart Problems in the BIBLE

    “What you are about to read will defiantly speak to your heart.
    Proverbs 4:23 says “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”.
    A healthy heart is a step in the right direction in our attempt to live a long life, however
    God has designed each and everyone of us to live not only a long live here on earth but also to live a life that
    would last forever. The Lord spoke through the prophet Jeremiah and said,
    “The heart is deceitful above all things and it is extremely sick;
    Who can understand it fully and know its secret motives?
    “I, the Lord, search and examine the mind, I test the heart, to give to each man according to his ways,
    According to the results of his deeds”. Jeremiah 17:9-10.
    Your heart is most precious to God and his desire is to give you a new heart in place of the one you may
    have at this moment. It’s a spiritual heart and in a nut nutshell as they say, it’s the real you that exists
    inside of the here and now you at this moment.

  • The life of Levi_front

    The Life of Levi

    Levi is a man beset by problems. While he is wealthy, his riches are always being threatened in many different ways. As a Tax Collector for the Roman Empire, he is shunned by his fellow Jews as being ritually impure, and so all Jews want to cheat him out of tax money. Being shunned deeply wounds Levi, because he had once dreamed of being a Rabbi. He had studied in Jerusalem under the great teacher, Gamaliel, but was out shone by a fellow student, whom he hated, Paul. Compounding things, Levi also knows that the Roman Prefect, Pontius Pilate, is soon to come to visit him, probably with the intention of charging him much more money to purchase the tax contracts for the toll booth at Capernaum. His brother, James, who is a fisherman, with his partner, Peter, keeps nagging him to come and listen to an itinerant preacher, Jesus, whose message is that the wealthy should give all their riches to the poor. Finally, his wife, Miriam, who loves to spend money on luxury items and dreams of visiting Rome, probably married him only for his wealth and may have a roving eye. Meanwhile, there are bandits, led by Iscariot, in
    the desert threatening the caravans hauling spices, silk, and other precious luxury goods, which produce the enormous tolls at Levi’s toll booth. When his best friend, a Greek merchant named Maes, arrives in Capernaum with his huge caravan, which arrival should have solved most of Levi’s problems, everything in Levi’s life comes apart. What can put Levi’s life together again?
