Refuse Offence

Morning Thought: True faith refuses to harbor offence. So many people are offended by trivial matters, but the Syrophoenician woman teaches us to live without offence. Jesus implies that she’s a dog. Yet, she does not let it distract or upset her. Instead, she still seeks him for healing. In the end Jesus says, “’O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.’ And her daughter was healed at once” (Matthew‬ ‭15:28,‬ ‭NASB‬‬). Living free from offence will bring healing to your life and family.

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 nine to twenty-two. 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).
