Daily Might: People can only see God as we reflect Him!

Daily Might: People can only see God as we reflect Him!

Jesus not only preached His message, but He lived it. He was not only the Living Word, the Sermon, but He was also the Living Work, the Sample! The greatest guide is the one that shows the way! — The greatest proof of the pudding is not the sermon, but the sample — to see […]

Let the Heat Bring Out the Grain

Let the Heat Bring Out the Grain

Long-Tempered vs. Short-Tempered

Long-Tempered vs. Short-Tempered

The Testing of Your Faith

The Testing of Your Faith

There are challenges in your life that test your faith, and not just test it, but sometimes reach into the depths of your spirit, grab your heart and rip it out, throw it to the ground, stomp on it, beat it to a pulp, and then hold it in front of your face, saying, “Now […]
