The artist can change his or her mind. Can God change God's mind? Jeremiah 18:1-11

As a child, I watched a lamb born, was overwhelmed with awe. God likes to watch it even in the womb. Psalm 139:1-6,13-16

Paul leaned hard on his friend for a huge favor, forgiveness toward another person, like Jesus in court for me. Philemon 1-21

What do construction, war, and discipleship have in common? Luke 14:25-33

One could see "Hound of Heaven" as a common theme to these readings. God will not throw away the lump of clay. God will follow you anywhere to reach you. God will lean on you to follow Him in forgiveness. God invites discipleship.
