Some call it a crisis of faith. Others call it a crossroads. But at some point in our lives each of us will choose whether to follow God or take another path.
Matthew 6:19 and 20 states: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth . . . but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven.” We’re called to be set apart from the world . . . but what does that really mean?
