  • Julia on Habakkuk 2:5
    If we are chasing wealth, we will never get satisfied. Earthly wealth is deceiving us and its leading us into death. Lets pray to God that we do not die but have Life forever. We should not chase after things that will come to an end. My heart goes out to the man who is wants to quench his thirst with the wealth that we will enjoy in the new Jerusalem...Amen
