    I believe in balance. For JESUS came that we have life and live to the full not destitute or a vagabond. But not materialistic or greedy with our wealth. I believe we should understand that money in good hands is a good thing but in greedy selfish ways is bad. So we should always live in our means and strive for better living and to help others who are hurting like your neighbors!

    Children need parental guidance and discipline. The child still has free will and will ultimately have to decide what he or she will do, but they are more likely to follow the direction given from their parents if it is done so consistently and with love.

    Humble I pray for your son too, I know how hard it is with children you can lead them, and show them,but until they see for themselves, we pray to our Father and Lord to intercede. it's rough times , they are told they can do and be anything and it's ok, breaks my heart , how blind they live, I pray to God always to open their eyes for I have failed.
