A Word of Scripture

Indeed, the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword.

Hebrews 4:12

A Thought for Today

“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.”

C. S. Lewis
