Two men, both by the name of Simon, found themselves in the city of Samaria in the midst of a great revival. One Simon was a native to the city and had quite a reputation as a magician who performed great deeds.

I love the subject of meekness, and how it slow closely ties with wisdom. The honest truth is that not many people have meekness. With recent rises in racial tension, election season hysteria, and the phenomenon of social media where everyone verbalizes (via text, so without being able to perceive the heart or emotions behind the opinion) their deepest frustrations and anger, we believers need to model meekness more now than ever.
I have one main objective, to convince each heart that children are a blessing from God. In hopes that once we have a clear vision about the eternal value of a child, we’ll raise them in such a way as to advance the Kingdom of God on the earth. I could easily fill 45 minutes with all the reasons I like children and think they are a blessing.
