SON SHINE 160: HAUNTED
A rickety bicycle was the faint hint that anyone occupied the dilapidated huts with cracked and falling walls. A lean dog and sickly cat lay prostrate in the open space between the structures, probably just waiting to die. The neighbours translated the name of the owner as ?the sorrowful/painful world,? given after his parents lost all their possessions to a calamity.
?and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.? ? 1 Chronicles 4: 9 (KJV)
Is something haunting you?
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
