South Park Baptist Church

Grand Prairie, Texas

  • If you are familiar with the Scriptures, you may find my title today unusual, because Acts 20: 35 says, “In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’.”

  • Those of you who live and drive around Grand Prairie have most likely seen the “Be Kind” signs at some of the GPISD schools around town! I am quite sure this is intended to be a program to blunt bullying in the schools, and that is a worthy goal! But this blog was not prompted by the GPISD signs. It actually began when a long time and faithful couple in our church gave me a bag of candy (sugar free of course because they are concerned about my diabetes) just out of the blue. It wasn’t my anniversary at the church, my birthday, or “Pastor Appreciation Month” just a random act of kindness from one member(s) of the church family to another member of the family.

  • NOTE: After some prompting from the Holy Spirit and a person most special in my life, I have decided to resume blogging.
