True servants

April 30th, 2008

I picked up a book this morning I read a number of years ago and quite enjoyed. It is titled, “On being a servant of God” and is by Warren Wiersbe. I came across a great quote that sparked something in me. I thought I would share it. “True servants of God help others whether […]

Website updates

April 28th, 2008
