Compromise costs Conflict confuses Commitment is costly. Two take all you have The other requires it. Give all you have freely. Freely freely you have received, freely freely give.  Matthew 10:8

In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ Had … Continue reading
