Many wonderful quotations are attributed to Sir Winston Churchill, the great British Prime Minister who had such a profound effect on the 20th century. His irrepressible sense of humor, his tenacity in the face of great danger, his oratory and his writing ability set him apart as an influential historical figure. One quote he is noted for is, “Most people stumble over the truth, now and then, but they usually manage to pick themselves up and go on, anyway.” Full text here -...

A “big reveal” is popular today for expectant parents to reveal the gender of their baby to excited family and friends. Mystery stories and movies also employ a “big reveal” at a crucial time in the story to maintain interest. The Bible also contains very interesting and captivating “big reveals.” Full text here - https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/the-big-reveal

Although the very first Christians were Jews—many of whom continued to worship alongside their Jewish brothers until the Second Temple was destroyed in 70ad—there has been a long history of “Christian” persecution of the Jewish people. Over the centuries, enemies of the Jewish people have used many pretexts for these persecutions. One of the chief arguments is the charge: “The Jews crucified Jesus Christ!” But were “the Jews” in fact responsible for Jesus’ death? Some Jews?...

Times change, and one generation’s meaningful metaphors are lost on the next. In an urban age of dizzying technological advances, Internet access, and an endless array of devices, earthy agricultural references lose their impact. This is lamentable, since life lessons are prominently symbolized by agrarian practices in the Bible. Many colorful expressions and illustrations picture prosperity on one hand and deprivation on the other, offering spiritual lessons to be learned from each. Full...

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with green—green clothing, green food, green hair and even green beer. But there is so much more behind the history of Christianity in Ireland—history that shows Patrick, the English-born fifth-century missionary, to be a “Johnny Come Lately” at best.

Would you like to receive $86,400 each day for simply living? What would you do with that large sum of money? Would it be overwhelming to you? Would you invest it by giving toward the service of others? Would it be squandered on personal pleasures and unnecessary possessions? It may surprise you that everyone is given this personal income on a daily basis from birth. God pays us a daily income of 86,400 seconds per day. After all, as the old saying goes, time is money!

We've all heard the public apologies of company spokespersons, sports figures, politicians, movie stars or celebrities.

Many years ago, when my son was about two years old, I used to carry him around on my shoulders and attempt to teach him important things about life.

Within minutes of a wintry weather forecast, supermarket and convenience store shelves are emptied. Jokes are made about it and fun is poked at those who react this way to routine news for the season. It shows the insecurity that people feel as a threat approaches.

Depression plagues many people. I’m not talking about having a bad day or feeling blue, which everyone experiences now and then. The depression I’m referring to is the kind of feeling that incapacitates a person with overwhelming feelings of dark and foreboding thoughts that cannot simply be shaken off. It is the kind of depression that drives people to do desperate, often irrational things, including suicide. Full text here: https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/the-black-dog

The year 1963 is remembered for significant events that occurred in the United States and in Southeast Asia. The world was aroused by the Pulitzer Prize-winning photo of a Buddhist monk setting himself ablaze in Saigon to protest the government oppression of Buddhists. The rest of the year would be no less grim. Full text here - https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/a-certain-generation

My father had a knack for fixing things. He was very mechanically inclined. On numerous occasions, I observed him fixing a broken, often poorly manufactured item and making it better than it was before. Sometimes he fixed what supposed “experts” could not. Broken things need fixing. Full text at - https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/fixing-what-is-broken

It seems that every generation has its own style of music. Someone who grew up in the 1940s probably enjoys the sounds of the “big band” era. Then, in the late 40s and early 50s, the plaintive sounds of country music filled the airwaves as tales of heartache and hard times were set to music. From the classics to the singing celebrities of the “Grand Old Opry” to the age of electronica today, music certainly seems to “tug at the strings” of the human heart. Full text here -...

The sound of the cicadas was deafening as I walked along on a summer Sabbath morning, enjoying the breeze and collecting my thoughts after a busy and eventful week. I had so much to think about, and was trying to making sense of it from a biblical point of view. Yet, those cicadas were humming away so loudly, it was hard to concentrate.

Who is a friend in need? There are few things as satisfying in life as a good friendship. Children crave friendships intensely, and we continue to cherish our friendships through life’s waning years. The “texting” shorthand “BFF”—“Best Friend Forever”—speaks to a heartfelt desire that is almost universally felt. Who would not want a friend with whom we can share our days of happiness and joy, who will also be there for us when things are not going so well? Full text at -...

The “walking dead” or zombie genre of movies and television programs must be very popular. I see advertisements for them every time I turn on the television. Are there really “walking dead?” Full text here - https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/the-real-walking-dead

When I was young, “He who…” jokes were popular. For example: "He who runs in front of a car gets tired; he who runs behind a car gets exhausted." Or this one: "He who leaps over a cliff jumps to a conclusion." Full text here - https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/he-who-is-wise

Cupidity is acquisitiveness, avarice, covetousness, or simply greed. We need money to buy necessities, but the question is, “Just how much money is enough?” Full text here - https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/the-stupidity-of-cupidity

There is a wry old saying that “if it weren't for the last minute, I would never get anything done!” Many people live by this premise. Tension certainly builds as a critical deadline nears or a crisis looms, and the potential for a hazardous or devastating outcome can be exciting. Movies, television and adventure stories often use this scenario, where events seem out of control as the hero or heroine, in grave danger, is faced with overwhelming odds and impending disaster. Then, at the last...

Have you ever browsed Facebook, Twitter or your e-mails and found an irresistible quote, perhaps shared with you by one of your online friends? A quote you’ve never read, a quote from some famous person, a short, pithy message that was too memorable not to pass on? And so, even if you aren’t the online “sharing” type, you give it a shot; point-click-send, and there it goes to all your friends, followers or contacts. You’ve just become another link in a chain, spreading some inspiring...

In the latter half of the 1950s, there was a television program called “Father Knows Best.” It was “squeaky clean” and wholesome compared to most of today’s programming. The father, named Jim Anderson, portrayed knowledge and thoughtful wisdom in advising and guiding his family. Full text at https://www.tomorrowsworld.org/commentary/father-knows-best

Are you "well-read"? Have you read "the classics" by Plato, Homer, Chaucer—or books by famous authors like Austen, Bronte, Dickens, Hemingway, Shakespeare, etc.? Did you read the books on your high school summer reading list? Have you read the books listed in the New York Times best sellers list? What is the most important book you could read?

Reader's Digest a few years ago had a story about a woman who had been born blind but had her sight restored through a medical procedure. She had not let her blindness hold her back—she was married and had done her best to live a normal life. Then one day, a doctor suggested she try a new form of surgery. She did, and when the bandages were removed she cried, “I can see.” Indeed, she could physically see her husband for the very first time. Full text at...

The absence of a stable family, including both father and mother, in all too many cases can produce maladjusted offspring. Cruelty and meanness have many times been associated with children raised without the constant influence of both loving parents.
