Awesome Quote from a book I’m reading

This week I’ll be preaching the third week of the “6” series at 4RC.  It looks at the relationship between Moses & his Father-in-Law Jethro’s relationship.  I’ll be viewing Jethro as the “Butt Kicker” that we all need in our lives.  The person who pushes us into obedience and won’t allow us to get lazy, […]
