Listen to God in order to obey Him

God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden to tend to it, guard it and keep it.

Get a new attitude for the new year

For many of us, this past year has been a struggle. We've struggled to keep our families together, we've struggled to pay our bills and we've struggled to find happiness in the middle of our storms.

Accept God's gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts and during the Christmas season, many of them are exchanged. People will go into debt to buy gifts for their children, families and friends.
