Let them live.

The last time Egypt saw him, he was Moses the Murderer. The man who killed a soldier and buried him in the sand. He was the one telling the Hebrews how to treat one another, with guilt dripping from his fingers like the blood of the Egyptian he shed the day before. Every time his name was mentioned after this, year after year, he was remembered as Moses the murderer. Moses the hypocrite. Moses the failure. Moses the deserter. But...

My Little Cup

I took my cup to a friends’ house, and they filled it with sweetened tea.

The Affirmation Dilemma

Everyone needs affirmation… “Great job!” “You’re valuable to us.” “Thank you for all you do.” “I don’t know what I’d do without you.” In fact, it’s a good practice to find someone every day to affirm. It’s admirable to be someone who gives praise to others. But there is a dark side to affirmation, as well. Some people are driven by the praises of...
