Hey, The Son Shines!

You’ve heard it said we should make hay while the sun shines. Since the Son [of God] always shines, we prepare to reap the harvest all the time.

“Be ready to spread the word whether or not the time is right. Point out errors, warn people, and encourage them. Be very patient when you teach. A time will come when people will not listen to accurate teachings. Instead, they will follow their own desires and surround themselves with teachers who tell them what they want to hear. People will refuse to listen to the truth and turn to myths. But you must keep a clear head in everything. Endure suffering. Do the work of a missionary. Devote yourself completely to your work” (2 Timothy 4:2-5 God’s Word©).

Strawberry Patch Lessons

Today I spent hours in the strawberry patch.

From a quick look ripe berries showed, but only a few. Was it worth picking? But it was time to pick. Do I go by my eyes or the pattern of harvest? Read more…
