Think before you Speak

People will give account for every careless word they speak. Matthew 12:36 Have you ever said something that you wished you could take back? It could’ve been an argument with a spouse or child.

Faith Is Something We Do

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?” (James 2:15-16 NIV). Faith is more than something you feel.
