Therefore, putting aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, like new born babes, long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, 1 Peter 2:1, 2 9 (NASB)

But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "Today," lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

I trust you feel the same way and will join me in singing George Beverly Shea's great song
"I'd Rather Have Jesus"
I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
I'd rather be His than have riches untold;
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or lands;
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand.
I'd rather have Jesus than men's applause;
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide fame.
I'd rather be true to His holy name.
He's fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
He's sweeter than honey from out the comb;
He's all that my hungering spirit needs.
I'd rather have Jesus and let Him lead.
Than to be the king of a vast domain
And be hold in sin's dread sway.
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.
