Trying to appear bored, I shut the front door so my guests wouldn’t be able to see the driveway when it arrived. My husband, for all they knew, was just picking up the pizza.

No, It Can’t Wait

I admit there are a ton of things about heaven that I don’t understand. I don’t know when a child becomes responsible before God.

Why Punishment Isn’t a Bad Word

If a child doesn’t have any experience with being punished, how will he understand the sacrifice of Jesus, who was punished in his place for all the child’s sins?

It is not love to withhold careful punishment. It’s every bit as abusive as the parent who snatches his child up in the heat of the moment and beats him.

One feels the pain now. The other feels it for eternity.
