Old Soul Quotes: Giving

I've spent the week reading Randy Alcorn's book The Treasure Principle and learning Matthew 6:19-21, about saving up treasure in heaven.

Memorize & Meditate: Isaiah 43:18-19

A good Monday to you all! I trust you enjoyed last week's passage, 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12. My kids and I worked on memorizing it together, and we were able to complete it successfully.
