This week, I’m speaking to Senior Arboricultural Research Manager Dr Glynn Percival, who works for Bartlett Tree Experts.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say that his eye-openin…
 
I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire. (Luke 24:32)I’ve shared this parable with a bunch of people lately.Jesus was often asked about the kingdom of heaven, and I can imagine Him looking up, hand on his bearded chin, pondering and saying, “What is the kingdom of heaven like, and to what shall I compare it? Hmmm…”“It is like a mustard seed, which…

I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire. (Luke 24:32)There are some things we shouldn’t think about.That almost sounds un-American, like, “What about my freedom, man?”But our thoughts, like most everything, if left to themselves, will just meander downward.I love the imagery of “take every thought captive.”It means you don’t let your thoughts go a…

I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire. (Luke 24:32)Do you want to be a follower of Jesus?If so, He gives a prerequisite.Jesus said if we want to follow Him, we must deny ourselves.

I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire.

I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire. (Luke 24:32)Here is one of my all-time favorite Bible verses, and it’s probably not one you would think of.

I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire. (Luke 24:32)The title of this is The Biggest Mistake in the Church Today.

I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire. (Luke 24:32)God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.That’s what it says in Hebrews 11:6.

Diligently is how Michael Jordan sought to win basketball games.…

This week, I’m delighted to speak to Robert Galster, one of the co-founders of Safe Soil UK, about soil testing.

Companies offering the testing don’t often tell you what to test for, or offer to explain the results they’ll be sending and the process can be ve…
 
I’m Doug Apple...and my heart is on fire. (Luke 24:32)Are you wicked and lazy, or holy and hard working?I’m getting this from Jesus’ parable of the talents.Two guys worked hard and increased what they had been given, but that one guy, he hid the master’s money in the back yard. He didn’t lose it. He just didn’t grow it. He didn’t increase what he h…
