Stories told by Steve:

The sweat of our brow
Contemporary, Macedonian 1:57
Before time there was nothing in the universe and God slept. But then He woke up and started to create: stars, Earth and everything. After a while, He got weary and stopped on Earth to rest. When He sat down, two drops of sweat fell to the ground from his brow, and that is how He created the first man and the first woman. Since then people have to earn their daily bread by the sweat of their brow.
