Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

Children are a wonderful blessing, but they can also be an immense challenge. Some are obedient and cooperative; others do their own thing no matter what mom and dad say. Let’s navigate the uncertain waters of child-rearing.

Marriage is the one place where God intends for our natural drives to produce children. The Bible calls children “a heritage of the Lord, (and) the fruit of the womb a reward.” But what is the most important thing Christian parents can do for their precious children?

For too many Christians, dependence on God has morphed into dependence on a credit card. Why go without when it’s so easy to just charge it? Why pray about a need when you can just go buy what you want? Let’s say goodbye to the scourge of debt.
