Devotion: Spiritually Ready

Spiritually Ready Please review the scripture from this weekend: Jeremiah 17:5-10. We often look at weeds and immediately want to yank them out, preventing them from overtaking the other growth we’ve worked hard to nourish. But have you looked at an open patch of dirt that’s...

Devotion: False Information
