Tuesday’s Temptation:  Seeing what you want to see

Tuesday’s Temptation: Seeing what you want to see

bible, bible
Again, I'm going to share my daily journal practice.  It is biblical in nature but often the questions are generalizable.  I have been reading and contemplating scripture through the lens of leadership.  I have moved into Song of Songs, often described as a love poem from Solomon to one of his wives.
