It came to guitarist, Keith Richards, literally in the middle of the night. He woke up, recorded the lyrics on a cassette tape player and went back to sleep.

D.L. Moody speaking on covetousness said, "Whoever heard it confessed as sin? I have heard many confessions, in public and private, during the past 40 years, but never have I heard a man confess that he was guilty of this sin." Another minister said, "Among all the prayers in prayer meeting and deep confessions of sin in times of searching, I have never…

Those nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency...

The subject of coveting deals directly with the matter of the heart. It is usually the first commandment that we break and the hardest to keep. God is very concerned that we do not allow our goods to turn into gods. One day Abraham Lincoln was walking down the street with two small boys who were both crying loudly. A neighbor passing by…

GRATITUDE: IT'S WAY MORE THAN AN ATTITUDE! 1. It's a decision and an action. Luke 17:15, Philippians 4:4-7, Colossians 3:17 2. It's an act of humility. Luke 17:16, Deuteronomy 8:11-17 3. It draws us closer to God. Luke 17:12 and 16, Psalm 100:4, James 4:7-10, Romans 1:21 4. It's God's will...

Our American culture is totally based upon the unbridled desire to have. . . to have the best, the newest, the latest, the most advance, the safest, the most fashionable. Our national motto has become "Shop till you drop".As one pundit has described modern day consumers, they are those who buy things they don't need...

Well, at last, here we are on number 10. Started out at number 1. We've gone through all the Commandments. We're on the last step... at least we'd like to think so! But did you know there's an 11th Commandment? It's over in the NT. It's called the bottom line commandment. It's under that commandment that Jesus gave the...

If you are looking for a verse that says "Thou shalt not gamble" you will look in vain. Neither will you find a verse that says, "Thou shalt not drive through a school zone at 110 miles per hour." This illustrates the fact that the Bible is not a book of minute rules but a book of principles. If it were a book of rules and laws we would have to...

In the past couple of years, the Ten Commandments have often made the headlines. Probably the most notable has been the case of Alabama's Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore and his fight to keep a two-and-half-ton granite monument of the Ten Commandments in Alabama's Judicial Building. Judge Moore was...

Whenever I go to eat at a restaurant I hope that I'm not going to be assigned an overly friendly waiter or waitress. You know the kind a mean. He or she informs you of his or her name, place of birth, current feelings, and then begins to ask how I am and how I feel and what special occasion has brought me out to this...

Purpose is something that is easily altered or even thwarted. It has been said that over time institutions begin to exist for self-preservation. Over time, we forget what things stand for and why they were created. We forget historical purposes and lay our new rationale for those things we hold dear. We look at our vehicles as...

Commenting on the Bible, Ronald Reagan once said: ''I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.''
