We have all heard the saying that maximum effort leads to maximum results. Give maximum effort in your studies, expect maximum results from your studies. Give maximum effort as an athlete, expect maximum results in your athletic endeavors. Give maximum effort at work, expect maximum results from your work.

Did you know that the Bible gives this same type of saying when it comes to your spiritual life? Give maximum effort in training yourself to be godly, expect maximum results as you progress in godliness. Did you get that? Godliness is the goal, and we need to give all that we can to progress towards this goal. It takes maximum effort, to the point of exhaustion. But the results are worth it. For we know that maximum effort towards godliness will yield maximum results in godliness!

How important is the father to the spiritual development of his children? Exceedingly important, says family counselor, Dr. Robert Otto, who even wrote a book about the topic, called “Rise Up!” Otto notes: “Men – God created you to lead your family. That can be a heavy burden to carry. It is also very intimidating at times.” His goal in the book is to provide practical steps fathers can take to be the spiritual leaders in their homes. Dr. Robert Otto joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss what dads can do help rear their children having faith in Jesus Christ. www.riseupdad.com

George Washington, our first president (under the Constitution), declared a day of national Thanksgiving on October 3, 1789. This was at the request of the Congress, giving thanks to God that we as a free people were able to create our own government and install such a leader as Washington. Dr. Peter Lillback, founder/president of Providence Forum, is an expert on all things George Washington. Dr. Lillback and Jerry Newcombe teamed up to write the book, “George Washington’s Sacred Fire. Together Dr. Lillback and Dr. Newcombe have discussed many aspects of Washington’s faith.

Steve Moore

Apparently, the bestselling book in America at this time is “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff, which noted economist of Heritage and FreedomWorks, Steven Moore, calls an “anti-Trump screed.” In an opinion piece in the Washington Times, Moore notes, “The talking heads are now out in full force once again thrashing President Trump as a moron, and idiot, a dangerous fool, who is intellectually and temperamentally unfit for office — something they have been saying since the day he announced he was running for president.” So far the economy is booming under Trump, but his detractors said the opposite would happen. Steve Moore joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this idea of “Trash Talking President Trump.” www.freedomworks.org
