God’s Care: Learning (#941)
Welcome! Today, we are going to continue our series on God’s Care for us. We’ve looked through many sessions at the many ways God cares for us.

So we should never have the attitude that we’ve learned all we can learn and we can’t grow anymore and God’s done teaching us. Because He cares for us so much, that He’ll continue to help us learn.
