How can we be men who are above reproach in the private areas of life? Today we will learn about addictions, loving money, and ordering our private world in such a way that God is glorified in our behavior when no one else is watching.
Could you use a good night’s sleep? I bet some of you listening today have trouble sleeping because of worry or fear. What’s the solution? – meditate on the truth of God. Stop meditating on the lies.
