Blinded by the eclipse

How was this small moon able to conduct such a powerful feat? Even though it is 400 times smaller than the sun, it is 400 times closer to the earth. This fact is true about most anything in our lives. The things which we draw closest to us are the things that garnish the most attention and tend to block other more significant items.

Let Jesus be your husband

Let Jesus be your husband: 1 Thessalonians 4:3 (NKJV) For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; Let me state the obvious. I have never been a female and my wife reminds me if I was I would make a very poor one. I’m never sure if that’s […]
