Common sense. It used to be called horse sense. My late father-in-law said “mule sense” would be a better term. He always said you could literally work a horse to death, but a mule wouldn’t let that happen.

The church is – or should be … Continue reading Jude’s Warning
Brothers and sisters, I urge you to get in the Word, stay in the Word, and pray often daily. We live in perilous times. Two weeks ago we had a guest preacher at church.
