Verse of the Day "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceed out of the mouth of God."
Quote of the Day "The sea is always deeper below the surface, very akin to the verses of a holy book! The deeper you dive, the closer you go to the treasures. Just like the sea, the holy book is also a source of precious Words of God (more valuable than any jewel, stone or gem) which enrich your soul making you richer intellectually and in every other way."
