I recently heard someone quoted as telling their wife, “Dear, I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong!” In my pride, I would rather twist my view of God into seeing him as someone who agrees that I am worthless and useless and hopeless; rather than admitting that I am just […]
Category: Life Challange
This is a cause and effect world. What we sow we reap! If I sow, I reap death/ if he sows through me, I reap life abundantly. God’s “laws” are simply a list of wisdom principles that would work if I could keep them. However, like the apostle Paul, I know what to do, and […]
