Let Us

by Don Wright

As Christians there are some things that we must do for ourselves. Paul once said, “For every man shall bear his own burden” (Galatians 6:5). We took on certain obligations and responsibilities when we obeyed the gospel, and we alone can meet those responsibilities. However, most of the commandments that we have received from God […]

Being Honest with Yourself

by Don Wright

Honesty is a divine criterion for the Christian. The Bible says, “Let us walk honestly, as in the day…” (Romans 13:13). To be honest is to be free from fraud or deception and marked by integrity (Webster). The opposite of being honest would be to be a liar, something that will be punished by eternal […]

Wherein Dwells Righteousness

by Don Wright

Heaven is a wonderful place. The promise of heaven is the most precious promise that we have. This should motivate us to live good lives, to serve God consistently, and to teach the gospel to the lost at every opportunity that we have. Why is heaven such a glorious place? Wherein lies the beauty of […]

See Ya When I See Ya

by Don Wright

This is what friends sometime say to each other when they depart from each other, and they are not quite sure when they will be in each other’s company again. Sadly, there are many members of the body of Christ who we could say that to when they leave after a worship service. This shouldn’t […]

The Willingness to Say “I’m Sorry”

by Don Wright

Without question, the best part of life revolves around the relationships that we develop with others. For those of us who are married, the relationship that we have with our spouse becomes more important, and rewarding, than any other earthly enjoyment. Of course, our relationship with our children produces a love that is indescribable. Who […]

Unity in Diversity

by Don Wright

The desire of every child of God should be religious unity. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity” (Psalms 133:1). In John 17:20-22 Jesus prayed that His disciples would be one even as He was one with the Father. In 1 Corinthians 1:10 Paul exhorted the brethren […]

What’s Wrong with It?

by Don Wright

To many people there is a blurred line between right and wrong. What is right and wrong is determined by feelings and other subjective standards, making the identification of things right and things wrong nearly, if not altogether, impossible. The Bible removes any question about whether something is right or wrong. If the Bible condemns […]

Coming Out

by Don Wright

Sports Illustrated reported last Thursday that Sue Bird, a veteran WNBA allstar “comes out.” Of course, that is the terminology used to report someone famous publicly announcing to the world that he or she is gay. My question is why are these things still being reported? Out of what was Sue Bird coming? We know […]

Scriptural Giving

T here is a lot of false teaching today on the subject of giving financially. In denominational churches, it is regularly taught that members must tithe. I have recently heard of a local church of Christ in Florida that is now teaching its members to tithe. What does the Bible say about giving today? We […]
