A Devotional: Picking Up My Cross as a Husband and Dad

This might seem an overwhelming task but it is not precisely because Jesus embraced His cross first before He ever asked us to copy […]

Do You Love Me?

We tell God we love Him and adore Him. So, when we make this statement, we can ask ourselves, ” Do we really mean it or are we sending an empty message?” We need to ask ourselves if we heap up empty phrases like Jesus said not to do in Matthew 6:7. Do we mean […]
