Ephesians 2:1-6
Rich in Mercy

I had my wisdom teeth out when I was 19 years old.   Then, I did not see another dentist or have dental work for 37 years.  Now this was not because of fear of the dentist.  We did not have a health benefits plan as a family.   So we would have to pay for regular dental checkups.  If our teeth didn’t hurt, we didn’t go.  Well my teeth didn’t hurt for 37 years.  I talked with a dentist.  He shared that I probably had the kind of teeth that weren’t super sensitive or something.  But then 2 years ago, one of my teeth began to hurt.  I hadn’t felt pain like that in a long time.  I tried to eat and drink out of one side of my mouth.  But if the tiniest bit of water drifted over to that tooth, a shooting pain went through my jaw.
