But not everyone has that advantage. Some people are beset with hidden ills that prevent them from living full, happy lives. And I’d like to …

Why did Jesus go to such great lengths to disguise God’s truth in parables? Jesus could have given people straight information about God, but He chose to give many people only veiled truths.

Horses don’t smile. Chimps don’t smile. In fact, no animal has the ability to smile, laugh, or make countless other fine facial expressions. But human babies, from very early on, can and do smile.
