Exodus 34:14 “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.” Point To Ponder: The “For” should tell us to pause; think about why the ‘For’ is there.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.” Point To Ponder: Most, including myself, never leave home without their Cell Phone. We come unglued, overcome with panic with a sense of helplessness if our Cell Phone is lost, left at home or if wireless network is not available.
