Our readings today: Exodus 40: 16 – 21, 34 – end, Psalm 84: 1 - 6, Matthew 13: 47 - 53

This is a very powerful story. . Jesus seems to be making us aware that the decisions we make day by day are important. We know he wants us always to love one another which is what shapes our eternal destiny.

We are meant always to love others regardless of our view of them and we need not just live for ourselves. Our joy at the end will be to see how we have helped others to become as God wants them to be.

Prayer

We have many people in our village and beyond who need our prayers. We pray for all suffering from cancer, we pray for all in hospital and those who are undergoing other treatment.

So please pray daily for all our brothers and sisters in Christ who are in need of healing and God's comfort. Thank you


The Collect

Generous God, you give us gifts and make them grow: though our faith is small as a mustard seed, make it grow to your glory and the flourishing of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Amen


May God bless you today

with my love

Judy
