Have faith because the best is yet to come

The changes made in technology in my lifetime continue to amaze me. Take the telephone. In the house where I grew up we had one telephone. It was attached to the wall with a cord, and had a rotary dial. Until I was about 12 it was a "party line." And until I was 16 the cord on the phone was three feet long. That restricted any private conversations.

Keeping God in your life, part 1

As Jesus was concluding what has become known as the Sermon on the Mount, he said, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" (Matthew 6:33-34). In this, we are told to put God first in our lives and not to concentrate all our beings on the physical things of this life.
