Vanity of Vanities • Ecclesiastes 1:2

Vanity of Vanities • Ecclesiastes 1:2

Both religious and non-religious circles alike agree that stuff won’t make you happy, but something else Solomon teaches us is that experiences won’t either.

The Face of an Angel • Acts 6:15

Every time we see the appearance of an angel in the Bible, it’s associated with fear of the heavenly messenger. They often had to reassure the person they were speaking to, telling them to not be afraid.
