By Dr. Luke “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” (1 Timothy 6:10). In my many years of practicing medicine, the breakdown of relationships because of money gave me chills. I saw the relationship between parents and children and brothers and sisters. They stopped communicating with each other or even went to court because of conflicts in the distribution of wealth. But when you talk to them personally, they have a valid reason to feel they are being mistreated. Therefore, when I divvy up my parents’

Author: Solid Road In this issue, we will touch on the depth of the hearts of immigrants from Mainland China, a susceptible and challenging part to discover. Although they advocate the virtues of saints, emphasize spiritual beauty, and respect noble sentiments and noble spirits, their hearts are heavy, and their lives are not accessible. The history of the Japanese invasion, the Chinese Civil War, the political movements at various stages, reform, and opening after the New China founded caused dramatic changes in the social system.  Social competition affected not only one generation but the second and third generations.

The Choice for Life Track

蔡錦輝   2022-03 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

[Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)]
