Choose Life

Free to Fly

As I sit here and listen to Jason Upton sing about freedom, I mediate on the truth of what he is singing. (Click here) Ah, yes, freedom! Isn’t that we all long for? True freedom to be who we were created to be in the security of safety and comfort of knowing we will not […]

The Difference Between Pigs & Sheep

Do you know the difference between pigs and sheep? Pigs like mud. They will wallow in it. They find comfort in mud. It’s their nature. Sheep do not belong in mud. It is not their nature.  “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the […]
