It’s funny. When asked one of the number one things many people say is the most uncomfortable time during Thanksgiving is the prayer. Prayers should not make us uncomfortable! We are actually told in the bible not to worry about everything and to pray, yet the prayer is what has got us worried?!?!

Paul continues to talk to the Jewish people, addressing them as those entrusted with God’s word. Can we ever be perfect? Because one has the law, does that make them less sinful? Is anyone without sin?

Romans 3:1-31- A Reading and Study Questions- God Remains Faithful, All People Are Sinners, and Christ Took Our Punishment

It is easy to say one’s belief is personal to them and if they have that belief, who am I or anyone else to change that? Playing devil’s advocate, that is my husband’s argument.

Whereas, we don’t know what the group of people is going to be around us. It’s a balance… careful appreciation for both because we need both. ”
