“And Jonathan, Saul’s son, arose and went to David into the wood, and strengthened his hand in God” (1 Samuel 23:16). I remember a statement from my freshmen year of college that has stuck with me over two decades.  Dr. Wendell Evans said that if you have five real friends when you come to the […]

Luke 17: 1, “Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Take […]
