GOD'S BIG THREE
I Corinthians 13:13
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love."
There are some things you just cannot do without. The
obvious physical necessities of life include food and

earnestly seek Him." Give to us what it takes to have
that kind of faith. Challenge us out of shallow
living. In Jesus' Name, amen. For sure, no one ever
rises above their circumstances or medio ...
