“We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you.” Colossians 1:3
Have you ever worked long and hard on some project that turned out great? When you stood back to admire what you had accomplished, you may have even said to yourself, “I gave it my best.

Many of our daily activities are influenced by labels of one kind or another. We try to purchase merchandise containing labels that we have learned by experience will have the kind of quality we can trust.
