My Church?!?
'Chip Shots from the Ruff of Life' from Tom Kelley

Not long ago I received an email that had a curious comment in it. Along with a prayer request was the reference by the sender to "her church."

Obey, Don't Feel
'The Way' from Kevin Pauley

  If another believer sins, rebuke him; then if he repents, forgive him. Luke 17:3 Forgiveness is first granted, then felt.

"Pray that ye enter not into temptation." Luke 22:40

"Pray that ye enter not into temptation." Luke 22:40
