If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?
Even sinners love those who love them!
That’s true isn’t it! But as Christians we are meant to love the unlovely, just as Jesus did – to help them, befriend them, most of all to show them the love of Jesus. Even in our own families there are relatives that we feel we cannot be with for long, we have to overcome that feeling and remember God made them and we are not only to tolerate them but to love them. It can be a bit of a problem that Scripture but remember we are to overcome and nothing is impossible with God. So we had better ask Him for His grace to help us. It’s amazing what happens when we ask His help.

At this particular time where most of us have to stay indoors or isolated because of the Corona Virus the above reading is worth thinking about – because lots of families will be shut in together and will miss the freedom of going out to work or play.
It may be difficult to all get along together at close quarters for the 14 days that our Government wants us to do.
But it is the best thing that we can do to help our family and friends also our work mates or colleagues.
So let us do it with a good grace remembering that it is not as bad as what Jesus had to endure for us.
I Pray that you all keep well and happy at this present time and will be able to help where needed if someone less fortunate than yourself needs help for shopping etc., if they are incapacitated or isolated with no family to help them.
May GOD BLESS YOU and keep you and your love ones safe.
