“…the righteous gives and does not hold back.” Proverbs 21:26
I heard a story about a woman who had finally arrived home after a day where nothing had seemed to go right, fighting traffic all the way. The first thing she did when she stepped into her house was open a bag of potato chips for a quick snack before dinner. Of course, the bag ripped open from top to bottom and chips spilled all over the floor. Just as she exclaimed, ”I can’t take anymore,” her husband came in and, with a laugh, began dancing on the potato chips strewn all over the floor. For a moment she couldn’t believe what she was seeing, but then she too started laughing and joined him in his “potato chip dance.” She realized that things weren’t really that bad and what she really needed was an attitude adjustment—and her husband had helped her get it.
Three things are important to a happy, meaningful life, and they all have to do with our body, mind and spirit. Jesus was concerned about all three. He fed the five thousand because He was concerned about their physical needs. He told stories so people could mentally grasp the eternal messages He brought to them, and He came to bring spiritual hope to all mankind. That’s why we call our ministry the Total Living Network.
The Bible tells us in Philippians 4:8 to think on things that are good, pure and positive. A right relationship with Christ is essential to a well-lived life and the assurance of eternal life.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2
George Barna, a prominent researcher and analyst, shares, “Although most people own a Bible and know some of its content, our research found that most Americans have little idea how to integrate core biblical principles to form a unified and meaningful response to the challenges and opportunities of life.”
We know, in order to follow Christ fully, we need God’s help to guard and direct our thoughts and perspectives. At TLN, we want to do everything we can to help people grow in their relationship with Christ because we know that it is in Him we can live significant lives productive to God’s Kingdom.
We’re committed to providing thoughtful programs like Let My People Think with Ravi Zacharias, Intelligence for Your Life with John Tesh, Significant Insights with TLN Chairman Jerry Rose, People Like You with TLN President/CEO Debra Fraser, Turning Point with David Jeremiah and TruNews with Rick Wiles. These programs contain Bible-based teaching and information related to current events from a Christian worldview. And it’s your faithful support that makes it possible. I’m so grateful for your prayerful and financial support! To continue to share content that points viewers to God’s truth and how to apply it to their circumstances, decisions and assessment of local and world news, we need your generous donations more than ever.
We’re concerned about the total person because we believe it reflects who Jesus is and what He’s concerned about. And I know you are too.
Total Living for Total Life
