Common Sense 101
Since it seems to me “common sense” is not too common these days, here I will list some basics, as a refresher course:
the christian’s response
Current times are difficult and tumultuous. Christians are called to share the Gospel; people now more than ever need hope, faith, and encouragement. We can pray for our brothers and sisters around the world in their suffering and persecution.

Prayers for Our World Today
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).
Prayer for the world today:
Father God, we pray for our world today. We pray for peace and hope to abound. Many have been troubled by natural disasters, conflict, and the results of a global pandemic. In challenging times, help us turn to you as our source of strength and hope. Merciful Lord, we offer a prayer for your peace to be with all those who have suffered and continue to do so.
In Jesus’ name, amen.

A BALANCED LIFE
Life Balance is a principle worth basing our lives around. Moderation in all things prevents obsessions, addictions, and other harmful emotions and behaviors. My website features these four elements (Spiritual, Physical, Mental, and Social/Emotional.
At the center is God/Jesus/Holy Spirit (the Trinity). All other aspects of life revolve around this relationship.
My (life-goal) book “A Balanced Life" will be based on Luke 2:52, and will encompass these four areas of life.
And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. (NIV)
