    Murielle, thank you for your encouraging comments! I enjoyed doing the podcast with Mr. Kubik. Indeed, in these trying circumstances, it is so good to have a true understanding of God's word with the cherished hope of our salvation.

    Hi John, nice to hear from you and thanks for your comments. The word “chance” in the phrase “a chance to turn to God” does not mean by luck or happenstance in this case. For example, the phrase “an opportunity to turn to God” has the same intended meaning as “a chance to turn to God.” I hope that clears things up for you.

    Thanks, Kevin. One thing I notice when showing these everyday kindnesses is what it does to me. Not only does someone appreciate the courtesy, but my day goes better too!

    I appreciated this, Jennifer. This is some good advice for parents!

    Thanks, for the kind words, Janet. Your comments remind me of the words Paul wrote to the Corinthians. “The Father of mercies and God of all comfort…comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble,” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). He continues to say that we are able to give, “the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

    Hi Richard, and thank you for your comment. It does always seem that life is full of sorrow. Christ Himself was, “a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief,” (Isaiah 53:3). He learned in His flesh what it was like to be submissive to God even to death, (Hebrews 5:8). Likewise, we should walk in His steps, and take up our cross daily and follow Him, (Luke 9:23). In this way, we are truly being transformed into Christ’s image.
