Word On The Way
Monday, August 25th:
Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord. Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.

Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
