“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.”(Luke 6:27-28) Jesus teaches a hard lesson for us here, doesn’t he? But, think about it this way, it’s hard to love God and people if we have […]

Our best days are yet to come. “Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.”-Thomas Moore Jesus said, “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, […]
