BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES
Dale & Wylie Herrington (28).
FEBRUARY BIRTHDAYSBarbara Landes (6), Leo Cunningham (8), Daniel Leighter (21), Stacy Green (24), and Noah See (29).
February is the month of love. Valentine’s Day with its candy, flowers, cards. It’s fun and a great way to show others how we feel about them. But the Bible shows us the true meaning of love. The kind of love that will give us peace and happiness. Here are a few examples from Romans 12.
Love Must Honor Others.
The Greek word for honor actually has a sense of competition about it, so translation “outdo one another” is very accurate. We live in a day where the opposite seems to be the case. We hear much about quotas, preferential treatment and affirmative action. In the Christian context, it means that we take affirmative action to make sure that others receive preferential treatment before we do. This obviously goes so much against our human nature that it is not possible without the infusion of God’s Holy Spirit in our hearts.
Love Must be Enthusiastic.
Paul’s words have nothing to do with how loud we sing or how much we clap or whether or not we raise our hands when we worship. Those things are purely secondary. Paul is challenging us to put as much effort into our Christianity as we do into our work.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
"You can't fix stupid. And, killing it is
against the law." This saying has left me a bit puzzled. The ignorant
might be trained. Skills can be developed among even the simplest of
people and adaptations made. The distracted are a problem of their own.
But, the rebellious are a challenge for God Himself.
