Fall is a busy season in my family's life! There's a hurried feeling in the air along with the chill, as we work to complete certain home and garden projects before the cold weather sets in.

Memorize & Meditate: Micah 6:8

I came across this oft-quoted verse in my continuing studies of the Minor Prophets. In just a few phrases, it captures the essence of the Christian life, proving that even a brief passage of Scripture can be "quick, and powerful..." (Hebrews 4:12) and worth meditating upon. He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and… Continue reading Memorize & Meditate: Micah 6:8
