Family Discipleship Ministries Mini Cast Square

[display_podcast] Matthew 6:33 tells us“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,And all these things shall be added unto you.” Think about that. “ALL THESE THINGS”. It doesn’t matter which language you study: Hebrew, Greek, English, Spanish… “all” means “all”.
