  129. Jesus
    If I were ever asked to define what real love is, I would say, love is never wanting to let the other person down. When I consider my limited love for Jesus, who I believe I probably love most of all, and I try to please Him at all times. But I can't deny the many, many times I have let Him down. Then, when comparing my love to His, it is evident how little I understand love, because He has never, one time, ever let me down. That is what is known as perfect love. And, perfect love never cha

  136. Modesty
    The reason skin is called Hide is because that's what you're expected to do with it.

  137. Faithfulness
    God expects for us to have the trust of a little child. Because when you tell a little child something he believes every word of it is true, and has no doubt that it is to be exactly as spoken. Why does he want us to believe him in that manner? Because he believes everything we tell him in that manner. Whenever we make him a promise, he believes it and expects for us to fulfill that promise in the same way a child believes us when we promise him something. There is one difference though: G
