What a sin it is to FORSAKE GOD. Let us listen to the
Word of God earnestly today, as God wants to speak to
our hearts. Let us consider these things and find the
way back to God today. May the Scriptures penetrate to
your heart, and may you find the Lord as we come to

Then again we read, in Jeremiah 17:5, "Cursed is the
man that trusteth in man and maketh flesh his arm to
lean on:" Flesh? Well, that is all that man is, apart
from God. What flesh can you lean on? Your loved ones
