"The time has come and the Kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the Good News"

Mark 1:15
Isaiah 8:23-9:3; Psalm 27:1,4,13-14; 1 Corinthians 1:10-13,17; Matthew 4:12-23

Benjamin Franklin coined a proverb for the world when he told of his visit to a store at age seven to make a purchase. Franklin gave the merchant a whole fistful of coins for a child’s toy whistle. He wrote, “I then came home and went whistling all over the house, much pleased with my whistle, but disturbing all the family. My brothers, and sisters, and cousins, understanding the bargain I had made, told me I had given four times as much for it as it was worth. Clearly, Franklin had been cheated. And over the years, he would often look at something a friend was doing and say to himself, “That fellow paid too much for his whistle.”
