I'm trying here to finish the message I started on Sunday. So far I've found this task difficult. I just deleted what would've have taken you at least 10 minutes to read...you're welcome.
Here it is, I'll try to be brief. If my brevity leaves you with questions, email me (email@example.com). If you missed Sunday, listen to the message, it's on the home page.

Here is a quote and a blog post to continue with what we've been learning lately...where does your spending show your treasure is?

God rescued the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. He performed mighty signs and devastating plagues to do so. He parted the Red Sea for the Israelites and drowned the Egyptian army in that same sea. He made bitter water sweet, he provided bread from heaven, and he made water come from a rock. He then revealed himself to them by speaking to them directly the ten commandments.
