No Prophet Is Accepted In His Own Country

Early in the earthly ministry of Jesus, the Lord addressed a problem that hindered some from accepting the truth.

God And Mammon

It is important to realize that God will not accept being secondary in any person’s life. The “first and great commandment” is to “…love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” (Matt. 22:37). Yet, so many individuals have little to no time for God

Did You Wash Your Hands?
