Faithlife Devotional

School is about to start. It seems like yesterday my children were in school here in Carthage. About this time of the year, you would find us buying backpacks, pencils, pens, and papers. Then we would rush to the clothing stores so our children wouldn’t be the only ones at school in last year’s styles. The way their clothes looked, with holes the size of the moon and faded beyond recognition, I never could figure out why we paid such outrageous prices.
