And there he builded an altar unto the Lord, and called upon the name of the Lord. Genesis 12:8. HP 213.1
Abraham, the friend of God, set us a worthy example. His was a life ...of prayer and humble obedience,
We must have more religion. We need the strength and grace that are born of earnest prayer. This means of grace should be diligently
This is a daily matter. Each morning consecrate
There's all kinds of ridiculous
If I was on the street I wouldn't do any of that shit either....
No one chooses to be ostracized
It's the shelters that are fucked off or more people would use them. I mean, how shitty does an ideology have to be when masses of people would rather turn down FREE shelter than put up with peoples' ridiculous
What a person's belief or habits are should have no bearing on whether or not they qualify to be treated as humanely as others.
Maybe if people could provide shelter, provide rooms for the homeless then leave them the fuck alone with their bullshit programs we'd see less people sleepin on the street.
I think it's the most disgusting
That's not charity, that's abuse, It's shameful.
Reflecting on our brother Billy Graham's life well lived on earth, we're reminded of the eternal purpose we have: to share the gospel and to teach people (as we continue to learn ourselves) how to live lives of obedience to God. As believers, we're all on the same team and we have a priceless hope to share.
Have you seen the billboards with the crossed-out labels? Here's what they're all about: "We must go beyond any labels that may be put on our fellow human beings to the ultimate reality of who they really are: marvelous creations of God Himself! As a created being, every human being bears in some God-given sense, even in a sinful state, the likeness of God Himself." - Sonny Westbrook
Heather came to Anna Ogden Hall confused and burdened. The world had placed many false labels on her and she had accepted them. Through Women's Recovery, she discovered her true identity.

“This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can give away, which grows into full formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God” - 2 Corinthians 9:11-12, The Message.

What does a practicum opportunity mean to someone who needs a job? “It was so important for me to be able to start working again so I could provide for my children. I was intimidated at first. ... My boss was really encouraging, saying how good I was doing. Hearing that, I thought, ‘Maybe I can do this!’ ” http://bit.ly/2o3ZHHo
Wise words on teamwork from Gayle Havercroft, UGM Facilities Manager: "We have this ethic at the forefront of all we do: Do every job to the highest standard we possibly can, so all we do is to the glory of our God and Savior Jesus Christ. ... Our relationship with Christ and with each other is the glue and the oil that keeps us together. Glue so we stick together and have each other’s backs, and oil so that if there are points of tension, we work through them."
