A Change of Relationship

May 21, 2014

A Change of Relationship If we belong to Jesus Christ, we are more than mere creatures to God. We are His servants, but we are more than servants.

A Change of Helpers

May 22, 2014

Change of Character

May 6, 2014

Change of Character “The only man I know who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measurements anew each time he sees me,” George Bernard Shaw once observed. “The rest go on with their old measurements and expect me to fit them.” Most people change with time and experience.

Change of Mind According to one apocryphal story, George Washington once told his father, “I cannot tell a lie.” The real truth is that God alone is unable to lie.
