Pastor's View: ‘Hi, my name is Volkhard, and I’m a thief’

I have a confession to make. I used to be a crook! No, I didn’t rob banks or steal from the poor, but I still was a thief. It happened in my childhood. Two of my neighborhood friends and I figured out that a vending machine that required 50 cents to dispense candy bars also worked with 2 cent coins. We nearly emptied the machine in a few minutes. By doing so I did not only become guilty of theft, a crime, I also brought a lot of shame on my family and myself. My family was known in the community; my grandfather was a pastor. Although I was still young, I clearly felt the burden of what I had done to my family and how I had dishonored God.

Pastor's View: Try winning for eternity by Kelly Lineberry

There are individuals, high schools, colleges and professional sports teams who habitually win. They have learned how to win in various situations and conditions. They have learned how to take their talent and knowledge and make it produce winning results. Others seem to win occasionally but haven’t been able to reproduce the winning mojo habitually. Those are the kinds of sports teams I have been on.
