Charity can be equated to agape’ love. This kind of love is aid and comfort given to someone without qualification. Churches often fall short of this because as individuals they expect to receive appreciation. But that would be qualifying the nature of the recipient.
To say a church is Pro-Life doesn’t answer the question “what do they do”? is the congregation willing to sacrifice to get sinners on the right track in life?
What happened to wayocross you might ask. I had heart surgery for a leaking heart valve. That was the easy part. The recovery and rehab were the hardest. Also not helped by my attitude. If I felt better I’d finish this post – but I don’t feel better […]
“Who am I” is an elementary question everyone has to answer. But have you ever asked this question of yourself? Do you like who you see in the mirror?

In 2020 it’s hard to find things to be thankful for. I remember in the great recession of 2008 that people fell out of the middle class and never found their way back.

Billy Graham said a better word than “poor” is “humble”. Don’t confuse humble with humiliated. Humble is the opposite of being prideful. Not having to always have our way, but to be able to defer to others.
