Part Three: It Doesn't Matter What You Do

We love offering little nuggets of advice, support, or sympathy. They come in handy when we want people to feel better. But what if the guidance you’re giving or receiving just isn’t true? What if God Never Said That?

                                        Scripture for the Week: 2 Timothy 4:3, 1 John 1:8-9, Romans 6:1-2
                                                                Psalm for the Day: Psalm 1


Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
