Today’s Bible Verse & Christian Quote

Today’s Bible Verse:

Colossians 3:5-7; Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.

Today’s Christian Quote:

To gratify any sensual appetite is to give it the very food and nourishment by which it lives, thrives, and is active.” – Adam Clarke
