Choose to Love Others
St. Luke: 6 verse 32
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.

Jerusalem is Special
This is a photo of Morning Glory in my Garden.
I reminds me of Trumpets.
Psalm 122 verse 6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love You be secure”
Let us not forget to pray for Jerusalem.
The Holy City, where Jesus will be coming back to Zion His Holy Hill.
As we pray, we can feel secure in the love of God our Father and Jesus His Son.
So pray today for the peace of Jerusalem, be glad that God is in control of everything.
From Book. “Drink from the Cup”
I think the above Psalm is a reminder for us to pray for Jerusalem – God’s Special City. Let us pray for His Peace to be there day after day for those that live and work there. We can pray that any hostility begins to cease and everyone can begin to live peaceably in Israel and Palestine. So that the everyday people can be at peace in their hearts.
We can also Pray for the place that we are living in at the moment be it a Town, a City, a Village or a Provence somewhere.
It is good to remember what the Bible say’s ‘The Prayers of a righteous man availeth much’ really that means that the prayers we utter should come from our heart, not just idle words, not prayers that we speak out to impress anyone but prayers that we really mean if we want God to answer them.
* I Pray that you have a lovely day today,
with the Peace of The Lord in your heart
whatever the circumstances you find yourself in *
