On occasion, I would ask for water. They would leave the room, but I had no doubt they would return with water and the assurance that the monsters were not there. I would sleep easy knowing the monsters were gone with my thirst. For all these things the nations of the world seek; but your Father knows that you need these things. But seek for His kingdom, and these things shall be added unto you. Luke 12:30-31 Weekly Bible Trivia What was the first man's nama?
