When God Will Judge

Two men owned farms side by side. One was a bitter atheist, the other a devout Christian. Constantly annoyed at the Christian for his trust in God, the atheist said to him one winter, “Let’s plant our crops as usual this spring, each the same number of acres.

To make the best use of my spiritual gift I can study about it as well as apply it. My gift is to be used for … Continue reading Stewards of Grace and Gifts
