What follows is some of the most important truths you could ever possibly read or experience.

I decided to post these because not only do I need to be reminded of them, but you do too!

These aren’t my ideas.

They’re not my suggestions.

That’s awesome!

But someone you know isn’t, someone you know is hurting, someone you know needs to be reminded of these truths, so share them with that person.

    Ephesians 2:10 is probably my favorite. We are God’s masterpiece, the art he shows off when people visit his house. Wow! In God’s eyes, Picasso had nothing compared to us.
