READ : Galatians 5:22-26 “If you plant a bean, then you will harvest only beans, not grapes or strawberries.” This is an old Korean proverb.

READ : Ephesians 6:13-17 Many people think money is important. Others say health is more important. For some, houses are their most important possessions. But the Bible tells us that the most important thing in our daily life is to be protected by the full armor of God. We cannot fight against Satan with money.

That’s why we call our God mighty and awesome. …
