    In addition to providing uplifting music, K-LOVE has eight full-time pastors to give you Christian advice and as you walk through the challenges of life. The following are some common answers to questions that listeners have about marriage, faith, the Bible and a host of other topics. If you have a question for one of our pastors not listed below, feel free to contact us.


    Question: "I struggle with giving. Does God really need my money?" -- Angela, TX
    Answer: God does not need your money, but He wants your heart. 1 Timothy 6:10, "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." God wants to be first place in our hearts and when we give back to Him it keeps Him first place in our lives. He's not against us having money. It's the love of money that is dangerous. Jesus said in Matthew 6:24, "You cannot serve both God and money." Put God first, trust Him with everythign and He will be your provider.
    Question: "Do I have to pay taxes?" - Bob, TX
    Answer: The Pharisees asked Jesus a question, "Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"  And he said "Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius, and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?" "Caesar's," they replied. Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."  (Matthew 22:17-21) Paul teaches us that we are to remember that the government is God's servants, and we are to give what is owed to them. (Rom. 13:6-7) When Paul instructed us to pay taxes, Nero, the most evil Roman emperor in history, was the head of the government. We are to pay our taxes even when the government is not God-honoring.  We all hate taxes, but God commands us to pay our taxes.
    Question: " I've lost my job and feel so lost. What do I do?" - Andrea, CO
    Answer: Losing your job, no matter how it happened can make you feel insecure, stressed and even depressed. You can’t let your fears and emotions take over. Here are some practical things you can do. First, sit down to make some three to five year goals. Plan to eventually be in a better place than you were before you lost your job. Second, build up your support system through church groups, employment counseling or any other community resources. Thirdly, make finding a new job a full time job.  Try to spend up to forty hours a week making resumes and doing interviews. Stay balanced with family. Fourthly, take time to serve others so you keep the right perspective on your problems. This is a time that you can grow through the trial, so make the most of it.
    Question: "Sometimes I wonder if the path I’m on is the one the Lord has set for me. Any advice?" - Chris from Arkansas
    Answer:

    Often times at points of struggle or discouragement this thought floods into our hearts and mind: "Am I really in the will of God?" First, we must understand that opposition does not mean we are outside the will of God; in fact, just the opposite is often the case. In Acts 16 we read of Paul and Silas following the call of God only to find them chained up in a prison cell. They could have hung their heads and concluded they missed the will of God, but instead they worshipped God and allowed His plans for them to unfold. As a result, the jailer and his household learned about God and were saved.

    Secondly, we must believe God wants to guide our lives. Psalms 37:23 says, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly, He delights in every detail of their lives.” Know that He cares about the details of your life, and wants to lead you. Pray about everything, don’t mistakenly think He has bigger things to worry about and isn’t concerned about the details of your life.

    Thirdly, one of the primary ways God directs us is through His word. Psalms 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” That is, it guides me today, right where I am (lamp to my feet) and leads me into the future (a light to my path). We must be careful then to ensure we are obeying His word in every detail of our lives.

    Finally, a fourth principle of knowing God’s will comes from Colossians 3:15 which says “to let the peace of God rule in our hearts” We may not hold all the “pieces” concerning our future in our hands, but when we have “His peace” we can confidently move forward knowing He is leading. When difficulties arise, don’t panic; continue to allow His word and His peace be your compass.
