STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS “ Whoever sacrifices to any god, save to the Lord only, shall be utterly destroyed.” - EXODUS 22:20 Do you put other “gods” before God? Is your love of money, power, status or some personal possession greater than your love for God? If so, you may want to pay attention to the scripture reading because you are not going to like the outcome. The good news - it’s not too late to put God first in your life.
