Don’t Wait ‘Til You’re Perfect

Until today, I’d always seen Sarah (Abraham’s wife) in such a perfect light.  When I thought of her, a perfect woman came to mind….and of course the words “Mother of Nations”.  Rightly so, because this is the woman that God chose amongst them all to bear the nation of God, Abraham and Sarah were the first Israelites, the entire nation…
