Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 110

Scars and Blemishes

Hebrews 11:36

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

All of my musical instruments are put to good use. None are for display only. There are people that collect instruments and keep them in perfect condition, but that’s not me. They all have a scratch or a ding of some kind. Hey, life happens.

Recently, a mic-stand fell over and marked my Gretsch guitar. I thought, “Man, why can’t I have nice stuff?” The Lord showed me that’s how we are. Scars happen when you live a life of faith. Read Hebrews 11, around verse 36. It speaks of folks who  were scourged, stoned, beaten, tormented for the sake of Christ. Scars and blemishes are actually badges of honor. Better to be useful than sitting on some shelf, eh?

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 104


Hebrews 11:6

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

Faith is a little five-letter word, whose depth of meaning is deeper than the deepest sea. It is the solid rock foundation of what we as Christian followers base our beliefs on. It determines our choices and course of action for our lives. This faith I’m talking about did not originate in us. It was given to us by God himself, the very bedrock of all creation. It is how we live victorious lives that are pleasing to God.

“But without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for they that come to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). God will reward you, my friend, as you exercise that faith you have been given.
