Playing With Fireworks

Being American makes being a Christian difficult. Granted, we still have a Constitutional freedom that makes it easy to be religious.

Day 38 – Friday, November 8, 2019

Today’s thought is shared by Aarek Farmer… Courageous Kindness After Paul spent a number of years persecuting Christians, and handing them over to be killed, it is no surprise that after God intervened to put him to work in His kingdom that people were skeptical. At a time when no one believes you, and you…
