"From what source come conflicts and quarreling among you?
Is not the source from your lust (activity of your sin nature) that
war in your souls? You lust, and have not: you murder and are

(corrected translation of Jas. 4:1-2).
"When I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me."
Thank You , dear Lord, for Your precious light. Keep my vision clear,
that I may only travel on Your lighted pathway.
