OVERCOMING DEPRESSION

“31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? 32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.

We are quick to say behind a sister’s back that her skirt/dress is too short, that her top is too revealing, or her outfit is see-through. If you looked down you might find that maybe your skirt/dress is too short or too tight, or your top is too revealing or your outfit is actually see through! Maybe it’s not her outfit, you just don’t like how she speaks to brother’s, you feel she is too flirtatious. If you...
