Tip of the Day
Shower your produce. Rinse fresh vegetables and fruits under running water just before eating, cutting, or cooking. Even if you plan to peel or cut the produce before eating, it is important to thoroughly rinse it first to prevent microbes from transferring from the outside to the inside of the produce.
“Your work, o Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.”
~ Psalm 119:89
The bible has survived every scratch of human pen. It has survived the assault of skeptics, agnostics, and atheists. It has never been proved wrong by a single archaeological discovery. It remains supreme in its revelation of redemption. God still speaks to us today through that same word, which stands forever.
