Awesome analogy Jack! Love the quote you shared as well. Have a great start to the new week my friend. Thank you!


Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. As a child, I must admit that I did not care too much for discipline, but as I grew, I came to understand that it is out of love that a parent must instill discipline. Thankfully we have a God who loves us so much that He will discipline us for our own good. Have a blessed day today and always.
