For most of my life God has been teaching me to release my grip on everything I hold tightly. It’s a process that began when I was 13.
When I was about eight I stole something. This is my first recollection of deliberately violating one of the Ten Commandments. Prior to this momentous event, I didn't really think I was a sinner. My parents praised me for being quiet and well-behaved and I felt superior about not causing trouble. Not like some of my other sisters.
Living for Christ is a moment-by-moment lifestyle, giving what you have for God's service.
One of Satan's greatest lies is that there is no urgency in life. He fools us into thinking there will always be plenty of time in the future to explain to our little ones about God, salvation, and the Bible.
