The Woman With Weak Eyes
Contributed on Jun 2, 2023
Because of her "ugliness" (weak eyes) Leah was unnoticed, unwanted & unloved… and unmarried. She was literally a rejected woman. How did God help her overcome her rejection?

Why would Cain kill Abel, and what can we learn from his failure?
Years ago when I was at Purdue I decided to read the Bible for myself.

On Friend Day we looked at many of the numbers that are important to God. But there is ONE number that I believe is more important than all the others. Do you know what that number is, and why it is a "prime" number for Him?
Today is May 7th, 2023 – or 5-7-23. Those are all PRIME numbers, which means you can’t divide them by 2, 3, 4, or anything else. Primes are numbers that can only be divided by themselves and 1. Now, I’ve never given much thought to “prime” numbers, but there is an entire discipline of mathematics ...read more

The Deadly Disease Of Sin
