Where Is God on Monday Morning?

Sunday morning is like the super bowl. The major players are in position and the crowd is ecstatic. Those who are not as enthusiastic as others still attend. If you are feeling down, there are cheerleaders to inspire you. If you feel defeated, there are coaches to remind you of the game plan.

How Can We Introduce a God We Do Not Know: Relationship versus Religion (Part 2)

These are good things; however, I had a hidden issue I was unaware of. I worshipped my knowledge of God. I felt that Sunday school made me an expert on Him.

In our daily meetings, we try to make the “perfect” impression. We want our encounters to be memorable. We want to make a lasting impression on others.

We are disappointed when our words are discounted.
