All You Need – All The Time

What’s one thing that you need to do (or have done for you) every day?  To have a friendly talk with someone else? To have others express that they care about you?  To be able to get things done, or to be sure those you’re responsible for, are cared for?...

Keep the Kingdom Secure

“Seek ye first the kingdom of God . . .”  Aren’t most people doing that?  And at least, in their own way finding the kingdom?  It’s striking that Jesus gave this command to his closest disciples – that they and every other believer needed to literally “keep on seeking the...
