Proverbial Journey — 3:9

“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce.” (NLT)   Today’s entry is short and sweet.   Just one simple question–   “Do I give God the first and best of my time, my talent, and my money…or the leftovers?”...

His fiancée was pregnant and it wasn’t his doing.  We can see how much this must have hurt him when we understand that, though he had every right to have Mary stoned to death, he opted to divorce her quietly and out of public view.  He loved Mary.  To...
