Good Works

In Colossians 3:23-24, it says that “whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” We can be fooled into believing that once we get a job, we have to work hard …

Even people that consider themselves independent and introverted eventually get worn down from being alone. The battles that we face in life becomes difficult for us to deal with without the …
