understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds

4.The Assurance We Enjoy;
-In Mark 4:38–The Disciples were in a Storm and
they asked—Don’t you care if we drown?
-In Lk.10:40–Martha asked Jesus “Don’t you care that
my Sister left me to do all this work?”.
-In Jn.11 Martha asked Jesus—Don’t you care that
my brother Lazarus died?
-In Matt.6:26 it tells us that GOD cares for the Birds..
Then, it goes on to say—How much more GOD cares for you!
