The Sharp Double-Edged Sword


This is so true, one needs to prepare for war
Our preperation is time with God and allowing the Spirit to fill us

This Day With God

We face a war between the forces of good and evil in our daily living. Think of the entertainment industry. Here’s a post from Proverbial Thought about the conflict we constantly have to contend with in a society that praises vulgarity, violence, and vice.

Exercising these builds character into a strength to deal with the world as it really is while providing the flexibility to chart a path through the unknown for one’s self that is fair, responsible, meaningful, and wise. No Harveys are required.
