Reflection

Nobody ever asks for things in the final moments of life. They always ask for people, because eventually everybody learns that life is all about relationships. Why not learn that sooner? It sure would relieve a lot of stress. Life is not about achievements. It’s not about accomplishments. Life is about relationships.

Scripture Memory

For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit.

Matthew 9.36-37
