3 John: verse 11
Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good.
Anyone who does what is good is from God.
Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.
Today let us not grow weary of doing good! That is a word The Lord gave me when I got a bit fed up one day and thought – what is the good of trying to help whoever it was. Then the quiet voice of The Holy Spirit said “Jessie never weary of doing good” so I pass that on to you today, please don’t grow tired of doing good. God is Good, He is Love, He is all goodness. He is the LORD!

Well the thing is – what can we do today that will be good? One of the best things of course is to Pray. But that is not what I mean, what I mean is what can we do to help someone, there are so many people that need help in the world. However our family should come first in all things.
Sometimes they make us cross by doing things that we would prefer they don’t do, especially any children that we are looking after. They can be a real trial at times. We do have to look after them though and not get fed up seeing to them. One other thing is to be good to our Parents and Grandparents, all older people should be able to find that we have time to talk to them. Some are very lonely and we can do some good today even just to say ‘Hello’ to them.
Remember you may be the only person that speaks to them today, so why not smile and say ‘Hello’ – no need to stand and talk if you are not sure what to say but just a greeting for them to hear will be a blessing that you can give.
A good thing to do is to say ‘God Bless you, have a good day’ to someone while out shopping or travelling.
So today I would like to say to you –
*’God Bless You, have a really lovely Day Today’*

Psalm 5 verse 4
You are not a God
who takes pleasure in evil,
the wicked cannot dwell.
As Christians let us not take pleasure in any of the evil things in the world. If we continue to be wicked, we know that we cannot live in the Kingdom of God because He hates evil.. God loves us but does not like any of our evil ways. So let us get rid of anything that is not pleasing to God if we can today.

What may we be doing today that God our Father in Heaven would not be happy with. I am not really sure about that, maybe during the day we may get angry with someone, or we may swear (i.e. use bad language), some people seem to need to steal things, some do the opposite of what they are asked to do just to be in charge of the situation.
There seems to be a lot of evil in the world – if you look around or watch or listen to the News.
We cannot just look at the evil in the world
and not look at our own sins for the day.
Let us try to help each other now and in the coming weeks, the thing that God says in The Word (in the Bible) is ‘to love one another as He has loved us’
Well it is worth a try – to share a kind word – with whoever we meet today.
I hope we have a lovely Day sharing the Love of God, so that our evil ways – our sinful ways- do not have a hold on us.
We need to take one day at a time.
That is the best most of us can do.
* God Bless You *
