God of the Middle

At our last translation meeting for the NIV, one of the translators shared that he had developed a serious illness, and this devotion came out of that circumstance. He entitled it, “God of the Middle,” or, “God of the Mu” (mu being the middle letter of the Greek alphabet, along with nu). I asked if I could share it with you, and he agreed.

Whatever Happened to the Golden Rule?

Does the Golden Rule control how we speak with other people? Whether the topic is religious or policitial, can we have a meaningful discussion about significant issues with people who believe differently than we do?

While the fire was fun to watch, it was the coals that blasted the heat. The longer it burned, the further I had to retreat. I've never experienced that amount of heat, and that made me think of hell.

What is the Sign of our Salvation and their Destruction? (Phil 1:28)

We have an amazing opportunity during this pandemic. We can be a sign to our neighbors of their destruction and our salvation.

Sound harsh? Not really. If someone is headed to any kind of destruction, we would tell them. If someone were wading into a river full of alligators, we would tell them. If a friend were driving recklessly, we would tell them (especially if we’re in the car).

At the same time, when we do the right thing at the right time in the right way — my definition of bravery — people notice.
