A Morning Message Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Categories: Morning Messages

Good Morning! A busy Monday is over and we ended packing until we were too loopy to continue.  We are about there, we certainly are in the war zone stage at the house.  The poor animals know something is up, they just don’t have a clue.  This will be their first move and we are praying they will adjust.  Snap will be the most difficult, who knows with a cat.  Lots of things to finish up today, goodbyes to be said, we have 2 more Sundays, but the between time will be filled with lots of travel.  A great run today, so blessed to have lots of the old crew showing up to run.  Tomorrow may be the last Salem run for us, so join us at 5:00 am in the driveway.  We love you all.  Have a great week and be  blessed!

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”        Luke 11:13 NIV

I love this verse.  If we give good gifts to our children what do we think God will give to us?  If we always love our children how do you think God loves us?  If we are always there for our children don’t you think God is always there for us?  Now, where does hell fire and brimstone fit into this?  Well the answer is that it doesn’t, it is a human construct.  Do we really think we can scare people into the Kingdom?  God is loving us into the Kingdom.  Maybe we should focus on God’s approach and put aside the critical spirit and just love folks.  When a person experiences the love of God what choice do we have but to love back?   Just a though for today!
