• Bullies are a product of immaturity

    By Billy Holland

    As children, we only think about life on a surface level. Having fun, our toys, food and security are usually at the top of our priority list, and this is normal.

    However, when we become older, we hopefully begin understanding things with a more mature perspective. I’m reminded of the scripture found in I Corinthians 13:11 that talks about how it’s okay to think like a kid for a while, but there will come a day when we put away our toys and become accountable for our thoughts and actions.

  • Train up a child and continue praying

    By Billy Holland

    Every child, whether they turned out wonderful or less than desirable is, to some degree, the product of a mom and dad. It’s true that some parents have invested very little enthusiasm into their children’s development, but generally speaking, mothers and fathers dearly love their kids and want the best for them.

  • Letting go of hatred and unforgiveness

    By Billy Holland

    How much grace does it take to love our enemies? Well, that is a good question.

    Tragedies are happening all around us and it’s true we are very heart-broken and alarmed, but what if one day our family is harmed? I admit that I do not always have the character of Christ when I’m being threatened or provoked to anger. Many times, my first reaction is to retaliate, because that’s a strong part of our human nature.

  • Mercy is the result of humility

    By Billy Holland

    It’s easy to be suspicious and though it’s wrong, unfortunately, it’s common to judge unfairly and display negative emotions toward others. If we could only remember that many people are going through some type of painful trial and difficulty, which usually explains their unusual behavior.

    I am regularly involved with those who are struggling with serious problems and it changes your perspective when you know the circumstances.

  • Fond memories with my grandparents

    By Billy Holland

    An older man was telling a story the other day about his grandparents and it caused me to think back to when I was a kid and the relationship I had with my mamaw and papaw.
