  • Don't Waste Your Life Series

    Contributed by Christian Cheong on Aug 13, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    It is not enough to have great potential or show great promise. It is what you do with that potential that makes all the difference. A good beginning does not guarantee a good end. End your life well, to the glory of God.

  • "The Crowning Of The King"

    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Sep 10, 2013

    What enabled David to see his god-given destiny for his life fulfilled?

    We read here how David finally seems to fulfill his God-given destiny.
