A Favorite Bible Verse – (from Amy Huber)
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God.” 1 John 3:1a
We didn’t do anything to deserve God’s love and favor. But He has chosen to make us His sons and daughters. That is amazing to me!

Before You Criticize …
When you are disposed to criticize a friend,
Just remember, the beginning’s not the end;
When within this urge you find,
These three questions bring to mind:
Is it TRUE? Is it NEEDFUL? Is it KIND?
