May 8 Easter V/ Mother’s day “thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4). Boundaries do not restrict freedom but complete it by releasing from the dangers beyond Moms... like god....discipline because they love. So let us heed His voice (John 10:27) and not shrink from declaring anything that is profitable, both in public and at home (Acts 20:20), including that abortion is sinful and every human life is precious.

Thank you

"What the Bible Is Like" : Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler

The Bible is like an encyclopedia, a love letter, a self-help book, and a Good News article--but
