5 Ways I Learned to Love My Dysfunctional Family

My family has always been what some might describe as ‘textbook Christian’: We go to church every Sunday, and attend fellowships and retreats. We read the Bible, join Bible study groups, and hold Bible study sessions at home. We believe that a family that prays together stays together. And yet, it has always been painful for me to see how much conflict and tension we have in our home.

Resist Slothfulness

Before we return to Solomon's proverbs, we have five more sayings from the ″wise″ (Proverbs 24:23-34). They are possibly adapted from ancient Egyptian wisdom writing, though scholars remain unsure. The theme running through these sayings is a well-ordered society that promotes justice and truthfulness. These are attributes of God himself and are reflected in His creation, where wisdom ensures order in place of chaos (8:30).

A Father Reflects on a School Tragedy

I do my best to hug, kiss, and remind my kids that I love them every day. Eventually, there will come a day when it will be the last time that I get to do so.

Vincenzo: A Sexy But Troubling Take on Justice

As much as I enjoyed Song Joong-ki's portrayal of the polished mafia consigliere, watching Vincenzo torture his enemies even as they pleaded for him to put a bullet through their heads and spare them of the excruciating pain and misery just didn’t sit right. Perhaps, as the show's protagonist, I was expecting that he would be “different”, and would redeem himself by choosing to spare his enemies at the very last moment. Instead, all the baddies get killed and Vincenzo gets away scot-free as he escapes the country. It’s the type of ending Song’s fans would applaud, but one that is also highly problematic.
