Stewardship Thought
April 22, 2018 - "I am the good shepherd...and I lay down my life for the sheep...and they will heed my voice."  -- John 10:14-16

When you pray, do you only ask Jesus for the things that you want? How do you listen for His response? Usually, the answer is in "quiet whispers", so take time everyday, in silence, to actively listen for His response.
