If you’ve ever met a Christian, you know that we aren’t always good at talking about what we believe. If you are a Christian, you may have experienced how talking about your relationship with Jesus can feel weird, scary, or just make you feel incompetent. What if you could change that? We’ll see how Jesus and early Christians had spiritual conversations in a culture where it was taboo, and how sharing your faith is easier than you think.
Maybe it started when we were kids, but most often find ourselves wanting just a little more. For most of us, that’s also true of money. The problem is more is it has no end point. If you don’t make your money serve God, you’ll make money god.

What do you do when people hurt you? Sometimes it seems impossible to forgive. Revenge is about what you want from someone. Forgiveness is about what you want for them-and ultimately for you. Few people show us how to practice forgiveness better than King David.
