Use Your Time Wisely

You can borrow money. You might take money out of your savings account and plan to put it back; but with time you can’t do this. If you do not make the most of the opportunities that you are given for God’s glory, then it is wasted and can never be paid back.

Love One Another Because God has Loved us

Love One Another Because God has Loved us

We have an innate desire to want to be loved. The Apostle John reminds us in this passage that we have been loved by God and God placed us in His family to be loved. We are doubly loved.

I don’t know about you but that is something I want to be a part of.

When we get to the next lines of the verse, it is not about what God might do through us but about God’s work.
