The True Vine - Part 2 (11 of 11)
Series: I Am
Ernest L. Easley
I read this week about two police officers who responded to a domestic disturbance with gunshots fired. When they arrived on the scene, they discovered the wife had shot her husband for walking across her freshly mopped floor. They immediately called their sergeant:
It looks like we have a homicide here.
A woman has shot her husband for stepping on the floor she had just mopped.

And it's my prayer for you today as you hear from God, through His word, that your response will be ''Yes God.'' In fact, let's stop right here and ask God to speak truth into our life.
