  • People not only need God, but they need each other

    I was asked to attend a men’s prayer breakfast a few weeks ago, and the study in God’s word was from Matthew 7, “Judge not that you be not judged.”

    For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. After the Scripture was read, there were several comments from those attending, including me. After the meeting concluded and I was driving back home, I believe the Lord asked me how I was doing in keeping this word of His. I had to admit, not so good at times.
