so we are (I John 3: 1). He who loves is born of God
(I John 4:7). No one born of God commits sin; for
Gods nature abides in him, and he cannot sin

Once a man was asked, ‘what did you gain by regularly praying to God?’

The man replied, ‘nothing… but let me tell you what I lost: Anger, ego, greed, depression, insecurity, and fear of death.’

Sometimes, the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing; which ultimately is the gain.”
