We hit the road this weekend as our summer travel schedule begins.
"Not By Sight" is a book about walking by faith. It is a book I will ask my son to read this summer along with his devotions; he, at thirteen, will be able to read and understand it and will certainly benefit from it. It is a book you should consider reading as well.

By looking at the Bible as if it were fundamentally about us, we totally miss the Point.
It is a sin to dwell on past blessings if . . .
