One of the most necessary items in the life of the one following Jesus the Messiah is a character of compassion. This is the person who can see people as God sees them, and love them as He loves them. James Yuen, missionary to Hong Kong, explains how this vital
The Pathway of Hope is traveled by many who are following the example of Messiah Jesus the best they know how. As they travel they meet with other pilgrims whose ideas and practices are very similar yet not perfectly alike. Some are more rigid in their adherence to rules and
