SHORT ARMS

Every so often I read something that I think:  “I wish I could think like that.”  That “Old Boy” of a preacher had more punch into a few words than I can think of in all of years of preaching.  Let me illustrate! The “Old Preacher” was endeavoring to lead a man to a savingContinue reading “SHORT ARMS”

ARE YOU THE ONE?
