What Will You Give Your One Little Life For?

What would your life look like if you found the one thing you were called to do?

Think of the great leaders of the past. Men and women who gave their lives for something that mattered. People like Benjamin Franklin, Ronald Reagan, Aimee Semple McPherson, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Without “David and the Bear” there Would Be No “David and Goliath” Story

The story of David and Goliath is one of the most popular Bible stories.

Even unbelievers know it and use it when referencing underdogs who defeat big enemies.
