The Golden Rule

In everything, do to others what you
would have them do to you, for this sums
up the Law and the Prophets.
          ( Matthew 7:12 *NIV )
 This is often called the Golden Rule."  As God's Children
we are to obey this, for written in the law is;
Do not seek
revenge or bear a grudge against one of your
people, but love your neighbor as yourself.
                                        (Leviticus 19:18)

Also Jesus Christ said, "A new command I give
you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so
you must love one another.      ( John 13:34 )

This "Golden Rule that Jesus taught us is the
foundation of goodness and mercy, the kind of love
that God shows to us each day!

Bear with each other and forgive
whatever grievances you may have against one
another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Amen           
                                       ( Colossians 3:13 )

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day!
It Is Written;
"Honor your father and your mother,
so that you may live long in the land
the Lord your God is giving you."
            ( Exodus 20:12 *NIV )
    Today being a day to honor our father's, we began the message
with the Fifth Commandment.  This Commandment is the first one
with a promise attached to it!

    So as we enjoy this day with our earthly father, let us not forget
our Heavenly Father as well, for after all;
Have we not all one
Father?  Did He not create us?  ( Malachi 2:10 )

Therefore on this day I would like to share the following poem
with you.  A poem dedicated to our Heavenly Father!

                                      Never Alone!

                         He can calm the troubled waters
                         When you walk in dark despair.
                         There is hope when you feel helpless
                         Knowing that the Lord is there...

                         Sharing in your sunshine moments
                         Or in valleys deep and wide,
                         He is always by your side.

                         There's no other friend so faithful
                         Through the sunshine and rain,
                         Through the teardrops and the laughter,
                         In your joy and in your pain.

                         We could never, ever thank Him
                         For His love He gives so free,
                         Never changing...never ending
                         Throughout all eternity.

                         Oh, the wonder of all wonders
                         As we live from day to day,
                         Knowing that we have a Father
                         Who is with us all the way.
                                        Poet, Gertrude B. McClain

    So to Dad's everywhere,
Grace and peace to you from
God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ,
on this your day and throughout the year, and may God Richly
Bless You as well!     Amen.                             
( Romans 1:7 )
