Heaven isn’t a place for people who fear hell, but instead a place for people who passionately love God. Don’t make your relationship with God transactional. He’s worth more than anything your mind can fathom. He’s not here just to be personal fire proof.

There are many conversations stirring up on what it means to be a man in today’s society. And while many might jump to answer muscles, money and a job title, others would claim the heart and actions of a man are what matter most.
Going through a rough patch? Here are 10 reasons you still feel lonely.
Within the last few days, a theme of “Brokenness” has taken point over my times of study and devotion. Whether it be my own struggles or the brokenness I see in others, we must see that Jesus provides a beautiful antidote for anyone going through a tough time.
The other day I was studying at a local coffee shop, when two people sat down beside me and proceeded to engage in a job interview. Their conversation began to catch my attention, but all I could pick up was that the job had something to do with pharmaceutical sales. But I guess that’s besides the point.
Not only was the guy who was interviewing wearing ripped jeans, sandals and a tank top, but he was texting on his phone nearly half of the interview.
