    Psalm 144:4

    Man is like a mere breath; His days are like a passing shadow. -Psalm 144:4 I’m constantly struck by how short life here really is. Whenever I think about holding back forgiveness, holding on to anger, or building up my pride I think about how little time I have here and how it shouldn’t be…

  • Matthew 5:29

    Matthew 5:29

    I know I know…Jesus was being hyperbolic when he said this. He didn’t expect a legion of Christians to gouge out their eyes to prevent themselves from sinning. Why I drew this though (besides the interesting imagery) is because I’m impacted by Jesus’ message of personal responsibility here. Almost everything he speaks about in the…
