What You Take for Granted

In all labor there is profit (Proverbs 14:23). All labor. Not just the kind whose wages you can deposit into your checking account. Unfortunately, that’s the one that gets the most praise.

Hold On, the Promise Stands

We get weary sometimes because we don’t see all God is doing. We walk by faith, after all. But we must believe even when we don’t see.
