And that the economic hazards of life do not seriously affect it."

I don't want to tell God what to do with my children—I want Him to tell me!"
Author: Voddie T. Baucham Jr.

We don't start off being all that lovable, if we're honest. What makes people hard to love? Isn't it what is commonly called selfishness? Selfish people are hard to love because so little love comes out of them."
Author: William Nicholson
