7 DECISIONS PEOPLE MUST HANDLE IN LIFE

Written by Rev. Manson B. Johnson, Special to the NNPA from the Houston Forward-Times on Monday, 17 November 2014 13:19.

Bible Fact: God allows various things in life to happen to make us better. The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life. Life Is Just A Minute: Life is just a minute—only sixty seconds in it.

Just a tiny, little minute, But eternity is in it! By Dr. Benjamin Elijah Mays, Past President of Morehouse College
