A Morning Message Monday, June 5, 2017

Categories: Morning Messages

Good Morning! Monday has arrived and June is in full swing.  John and I got the trees all cut and stacked as firewood on Saturday.  I can’t thank John Maledy enough for all his hard work.  This is the week of Annual Conference.  We will be in Springfield for the weekend as we all gather as United Methodists in Missouri.  Please keep the Missouri United Methodist Conference covered in prayer.  I guess the good byes will officially start this week.  We have a gathering Wednesday evening at church, dinner at 5:00 pm, please come and let us thank you for our ministry here.  I don’t know the details, but we have been honored to serve Salem UMC and the surrounding community. Have a great week and a  blessed day!

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.     1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV

The Christian walk is about supporting one another.  We hear in Thessalonians to encourage and build each other up.  Do you make a practice of encouraging and building up?  I hope so.  I must say that really hasn’t been the approach of our culture.  We tend to try to put self first and in so doing it can be that we discourage others and tear them down to build ourselves up.  Scripture reminds us that when we are encouragers and we build one another up we are blessed.  I hope you are blessed today.   Just a thought for today.
