To Love Life and See Good Days

How many of us desire to love life and see good days? My guess is it is all of us. Only the jaded have abandoned this hope.

Restoring a Heart of Worship

Israel had done everything wrong as their house of worship lay in ruins. They had stopped building the temple God had told them to build because some politician issued a prohibition.
