2 Corinthians 3:5-6

Lowercase L. It’s just like a spear or a sword…Straight and pointy.
You know those days where you have a problem that’s been pressing on your heart, and then you visit your favorite blog and see a Bible verse that speaks to that problem directly?
Today just became one of those days. Thank you, Fred. I try not to read the Bible as a handbook you turn to in order to gain health, wealth, and happiness, but 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 just graced me with abundant peace.

well I kind of know how that feels, So just enjoy the abudant peace. because that is one of the gifts the spirit gives to us.
Pretty sure “t”s should be kept at arms length…
It’s clearly not talking about that kind of letter (literally?). Obviously, it’s a reference to “Death Note”.
If you have too much T and not enough P, you could get very sick I’m sure.
