What’s In It For Me?

Colossians 3:23 (kjv) says… “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;” This Bible verse is self explanatory. We’re to do things heartily, that is, putting our whole heart into whatever task that God has given us to do. A sink full of dishes today?… Continue reading »
