I’ve got a question for you: What’s small, cute, furry, and has a long, fluffy tail that you can see as it jumps from tree to tree? (A squirrel!) That’s right, a squirrel. Well, I’ve got a story for you about squirrels. Many, many years ago there were two groups of squirrels: the nerdy squirrels and the cool squirrels. The nerdy squirrels had glasses and funny ties. They liked to read books, play chess, and listen to classical music. They were always made fun of by the cool squirrels who played on the football team and went on dates by the river. (more…)
Revelation 2: 8-11
And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These are the words of the first and the last, who was dead and came to life: “I know your affliction and your poverty, even though you are rich. I know the slander on the part of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Beware, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have affliction. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
