So I was helping a friend to search the internet using Google to find out what business one can do that will last for many generations, one that you can pass over to your children and they can pass over to theirs, and so on. Most investments are volatile, real estate go up but also crash, shares the same, fixed deposits and treasury bills appear good, but the currency could lose value. One could start a business such as a saloon, restaurant, pharmacy or a farm but you are not sure it will last for a long time. So I was not praying or anything like that, but just doing a business research, however rather
What is a sacrifice? The dictionary defines a religious sacrifice as anything consecrated or holy and offered to God. So in the old days and still today in some cultures people offer animals and kill them unto God.

This is not true, on the contrary all forms of enjoyment come from God, He created them. However He places rules so that it is not abused because no matter how good something is, once it is misused or abused it becomes bad.
Life in general is a battle or war. Once you are alive you are fighting a battle. There is something in your blood called the white blood cells and they protect you from disease and give you immunity. If your white blood cells have an issue it could be a problem because there are thousands of diseases that want to kill you at every point in time, and you will not be able to defend yourself. Beyond the physical battle your body fights, there is a more important battle which is the spiritual battle. Mathew 11:12 says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the
