Tell the Person Who Can Fix It - #6975
You can be an agent of real love and real peace if you always stay away from the back room, the back-biting, and you speak directly to that other person. That other person? They may respond or they may not respond, but you have done the only thing Jesus can bless, and you can sleep well tonight.
People always wanted electronic connection, even in 1969
Social media, in its widest sense, goes back beyond the beginning of the Internet, as this infographic explains. It is not a passing digital fad. People have always wanted the opportunity to interact electronically. Social media is perhaps the defining communication movement of this century, and highly significant for sharing the good news – if done appropriately.
Short video from Igniter media explains significance of relationships

The Mistakes We Make For Love - #6795
After every "I want" should come four little words that mark the road to God's best. "It's up to Jesus." It's often our broken dreams and our messed up plans that turn our heart in God's direction.

But God raises up a special breed of women who are able to give a man a harbor
The Problem With Panic - #6758

He's been the one love that's cherished us like no other, to the point of laying down His life so we wouldn't have to die for our sins.
