  •  The story is told of a young construction site worker who bragged that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. One of the older workers finally had his fill and said to the young man, “Why don't you put your money where your money where your mouth is. I will bet you a week's wage that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you will be unable to wheel back.”

    “You’re on, old man,” replied the young braggart. “Let’s see what you’ve got.”

  •  To know God is possible, and such knowledge is found through personal devotional life and spiritual practice.

    We learn from scripture that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).

    So how do we obtain faith? Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).

    In order to have the faith God is speaking about would be spending time in his word.
