For at least five years, me and my boys (meaning: my friends and my sons) have had an opportunity to go down to a local mission once a month in our area to preach the gospel. We have rotated preaching amongst the group and while not all of us attend every month, somebody has been there to deliver the Good News to homeless men.
No matter what problems I have going on in my life on those days, I’m always humbled with the perspective that God has blessed me and my family with so much for His glory and His glory alone, for I do not deserve one good thing.
Matter of fact, I deserve Hell for all of the things that I have done. Sin against an eternal, holy and divine God deserves an eternal punishment. PERFECTION – GOOD = FAIL. (For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23)
I have also been blessed to have a group of guys to serve with at the mission. They have started a radio program on http://www.1440wdrj.com/ that I have had the pleasure of jumping in on and past episodes can be found here: http://missionmen.posterous.com/
Please check back often as we explore basic Christian beliefs for 15 minutes each week and present the gospel.
As a matter of fact, if you are having trouble having devotion time with your kids and don’t know where to start, why not listen to the program and discuss our topic of the week with your family?
Being a CornerstoneDad is about being a reflection of the chief Cornerstone, Jesus Christ, in our homes. (Ephesians 2:19-22) It’s not always easy, but it is required.

I have really enjoyed reading your posts & look forward to seeing new posts. You have always been uplifting, positive & encouraging…I will be turning 35 in a few months & I still have and read the letter you wrote, encouraging me as I was celebrating my 16th birthday! That letter has helped me overcome many obstacles in my young life & meant a lot to me in my years of maturing…made me feel special & important, with all the family members and friends in your life, I received a hand written letter of pearls! Keep being led by God, cause we need you! Thanks Dev.
Thanks for the kind words Mike and please keep contributing to the discussions. You’re a CornerstoneDad yourself so please share your wisdom with us. Man, I wish I had some T-shirts or something to pass out because you’d certainly get one!
