“You will say that these are very small sins and doubtless, like all young tempters, you are anxious to be able to report spectacular wickedness.

Settling Conflicts in the Home (Part 2)   Why should you settle conflicts? Your prayers will be hindered. 1 Peter 3:5-7 – When the husband fails to do his part and the wife hers, there will be conflicts and God will not hear their prayers.
