  • Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smiting.”

    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people – and she had a list of people on her own smite list.

    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?

    Last month at the church in Tampa we frequently visit, the pastor talked about the words Jesus spoke from the cross, beginning with “Father, forgive them – they don’t know what they’re doing.”

  • Christian parents bear a great responsibility in relation to their children.
