Your Achilles’ Heel

Morning Thought: Have you heard of ‘Achilles’ heel’? In Greek Mythology, Achilles was an outstanding warrior, unable to be defeated. Paris wasn’t a great warrior, but he was good with a bow and arrow, and discovered Achilles only weak spot, his heel. Consequently, Paris shot Achilles in the place of his vulnerability, bringing him to his death. The enemy also knows your Achilles’ heel. It may be some girl or guy, a car, a certain job offer, a doctor’s report or promise of fame. Whatever it may be, today, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Mark‬ ‭14:38‬, ‭NIV‬‬).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
