God’s judgement

By on February 14, 2020

An attitude of being always ready to condemn

By on January 15, 2020

Every Encounter with Jesus Changes Our Lives

By on January 3, 2020

Mercy is greater than prejudice.  Jesus is so very merciful.  The symbol of everything that us seemingly important, but loses all its value before the “love of God.”  We all have one, or more than one!  The one that weighs you down, that distances you from God?”
