One Book: 1 Thessalonians

1 Thessalonians: Overcoming Spiritual Myopia Author Randy Alcorn once said “Being oblivious to eternity leaves us experts in the trivial and novices in the significant.” How many of us live with a sort of spiritual myopia, where all we are focused on is what’s right in front of us?
