There’s a story of a man who woke up one morning and decided he would walk down the street. While walking down the street, he saw a manhole and so he decided to jump into the hole. The next day he got up, and he walked to the same manhole. On this day, he looked inside of the hole and then he decided to jump in. On the third day, the man looked inside of the same manhole and said, “I’d better not jump in” and then he went ahead and jumped in.God is concerned about the paths we choose. Click To Tweet
The following day he awoke and approached the same hole, he looked inside, and said, “Boy that really hurt,” then he jumped inside of the hole. On the next day, the man got up and walked all the way down the street and again he jumped into the hole. This sounds just like a lot of people’s dating lives. Finally, one day the man awoke and decided to take a different street. He chose a new path. God is concerned about the paths we choose. When you start asking yourself, “What is the path I am taking,” you are then on the road to personal growth.
Help us continue helping others!

2 Corinthians 7:8-10 (NKJV)

Hebrews 6:1 (NKJV)
Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God…
