Geneva Core Values: Honor One Another

As the college nurse, her responsibility is to take care of the body.  That includes wounds, colds, flus, broken bones, infections, chronic health conditions and much more. However, she says she never sees the students, treats them and lets them go without finding out more about them. She decided early on to look at each student as the unique, individual person of God that he or she is.

The Car with the Rumble Seat

At the close of my first year at seminary, I decided that I needed a car for transportation. Money was scarce, but in some way I had accumulated $35. I began visiting used car lots, but everything was above my price range. Finally I did find car—a 1928 Ford Coupe. It was a robin’s egg blue and had a rumble seat.

Proverbs 19:4 -- Wealth makes many friends...

Men’s love of one another is so weak that if someone falls into poverty, whether through business failure or illness, even old friends find reasons not to contact him. Who wants to hear tales of woe? Who wants to see needs he should help alleviate? Not many!

The Stigma Around Mental Illness for Christians

“My challenge to the Church is that we might move beyond the whispering, the silence, the shame and the stigma. Instead, let us understand and show others that Jesus came seeking, saving and serving the lost and broken people around Him. We honor Christ when we join in His mission by doing the same.” - Dr. Ed Stetzer

Proverbs 18:4 – The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters...

As deep waters hide what lurks beneath them, a person’s words may hide his thoughts as well as reveal them. Jesus uniquely knew what people were thinking deep within, and while we do not, Solomon warns us that there are depths beneath another’s words that we can’t see.
