Out of the Same Mouth

20170317_130233

“All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea

are being tamed and have been tamed by man,

but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil,

full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise

our Lord and Father, and with it we curse

men, who have been made in God’s likeness.

Out of the same mouth come praise

and cursing. My brothers,

this should not be.”

 

James 3: 7-10

What Good Is It?

20160509_124822

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.

If one of you says to him, ‘Go I wish you well; keep warm

and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs,

what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself

if it is not accompanied by action,

is dead.”

 

James 2: 15-17

God’s Love

20170503_163307

“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,

God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

I John 4: 11,12

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts,

as we have also forgiven

our debtors.

And lead us not

into temptation

but deliver us

from the evil one.”

John 11:35

20170317_140351

“Jesus wept.”

   Much has been written about this verse, one of the most profound in the entire Bible.

Many believe He was weeping for all of humanity, and for the way we have rejected God’s ways.

Did He see us, down the corridors of time, as He wept? I believe He did.

Heavenly Father, as we remember Easter and the amazing resurrection, may celebrate new life, and how You care, so deeply for us. Amen.
