Remembrance

Transforming Love – Day 18

Matthew 22:37-38 Anything you love more than God cannot keep its promise. Not a person, a place or a thing. Your  heart was not created for them to hold. They will do to you what all sin does:  separate you from God, and the true love we all long for, forever.  As Robbie Zaccharis states,…
