I hate the word "deserve". I hate it even more when used as a tool to measure up what the value of a person is.
I now have a fond memory for the analogy and when I do get a pebble in my shoe, I don't rush to get it out, because I think of Jesus and the reminder stirs my heart.
Blunt tools are of no use to the carpenter.
If God choose to love us despite knowing our deepest, darkest secrets...
Overcoming difficulties are meant to be hard, otherwise there wouldn’t be growth.
