GENESIS 45:3-11,21-28
PSALM 37:1-17
1 CORINTHIANS 15:35-49
LUKE 6:27-38

The older I get, the more I realize I’m turning into my Father. I cough like him, avoid conflict like him, and tell jokes only I think are funny…just like him. None of these things, however, make me his son. Rather, they show the world that I’m a chip off the old block.
