Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 125


Psalm 34:14

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

I have an idea for you today that could revolutionize the world. It’s actually been tried before, but, being human, it’s difficult. Often we forget, even though we may know about it. Listen to Psalm 34:14: “Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.” Seek peace. In the midst of a struggle, if we could actually seek peace instead of allowing ourselves the right to pursue revenge, or even to get our own way. Seeking peace takes determination, but if we seek peace, look for ways to make it happen, and even pursue it until we obtain it, man, what a different world this would be, yes?

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 93

Fallen World

1 Peter 5:7

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

I’m not going to tell you something you don’t already know, and it’s this: we live in a fallen world. True. As a result, bad things happen. In fact, bad things happen to good people. The cat gets hit by a car; you slip on the ice and sprain your ankle; your favorite relative dies unexpectedly; and so on it goes.

Well, God never promises us a rose garden. In 1 Peter 5:7, the apostle tells us to “cast all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.” Got trouble? Turn it all over to God, and let Him help you with it. You have problems; Jesus has answers.
