Manny Pacquiao, boxer and member of the Philippine House of Representatives, attended the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. last Thursday and spoke about his faith and intention to serve God in everything he does.
"I'm happy to be here because it's a chance to share my faith, my belief in God," Pacquiao told Fox News Sunday. "God has a purpose … He bring me back into His kingdom to glorify His name, to let people know that there is a God who can raise people from nothing into something."

Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Dallas megachurch in Texas, says Jesus Christ would be outraged by President Obama's audacity when he compared the Crusades and Inquisition to the mass slaughter being committed by the Islamic State terror group.
Jeffress joins a multitude of conservative Christian voices — the Revs. Franklin Graham, Samuel Rodriguez, The Catholic League's Bill Donohue and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins — in condemning Obama for comparing Christianity to the atrocities being committed by ISIS.
" … [L]est we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. … So this is not unique to one group or one religion. There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency that can pervert and distort our faith," Obama said during his speech at the 63rd annual National Prayer Breakfast, just one day after he met with Muslim leaders whose names White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday wouldn't be release to the press at this time. more >>

"Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast is the biggest thing I've ever done, the most influential audience I've ever addressed and the most important speech I've ever given," the keynote speaker and hall-of-famer Waltrip said.
"I know I talk to millions of fans on TV every week. However, I'm not entirely comfortable speaking to this many people in person, but the Lord told me to do so," he added. "This was an honor beyond description and a moment I'll never forget. I love to share my testimony about what the Lord has done in my life, and doing it on my birthday made it that much more special." more >>

Throughout our lives we tend to make many mistakes, some more costly than others. We all say things we shouldn't say. The truth is we are all human, and no matter where we are in our Christian walk, we will all make mistakes. If you want to know how to best deal with mistakes, there's no better place to look then scripture.
It is essential as believers during our spiritual growth that we accept that we are not perfect. Only one person is perfect, and that's Jesus. We should do our best to be perfect like Jesus. In the process, we learn to become more faithful, giving, loving, forgiving, and patient. When we make a mistake we must accept it, learn from it, and move on with our lives. Dwelling on something we did wrong will not help the situation, it will only make it worse.
Below are 7 Bible verses about making mistakes: more >>
