The Easiest Way to Give

Giving is easy and secure! You can schedule gifts, use Apple Pay and more-- all right from the app, it's just a tap away.
The FIRST person you must be at peace with is yourself. It is impossible to know peace if you PRETEND to have it when you don’t.
Peace is possible when you remain TROUBLED by sin.
The purpose of self-judgment is to prepare you to SERVE others and help them grow in grace.
Some WRONG ways to address splinters:
1. Tell a person that you noticed a fault in them that they should take care of.
2. Tell a friend about another person's "splinter" and have them talk to that person.
3. Avoid any confrontation and say nothing about it, but in your heart judge the
person as being unspiritual or carnal.
