MONDAY 18 MAY
Morning All, the word I have chosen today for the letter V in my alphabet challenge is VALUE. Some more questions ( not like me you might say?). What do you value in life. Who do you value in life? What are your values in life? Some might value their possessions - valuable jewellery; a car may be for some their pride and joy, for others their home, holiday home etc... Where as for others it may be their health, family - especially value holiday time with family, others may value good manners, respect, a moral compass in life. I am sure you can add many more to this small list. For Christians the value is in the person of Jesus Christ who instills within us the value of caring for others, loving God and treating people the way we would like to be treated that's the truth of the Gospel message we are called to share. Great values to live by sometimes hard to achieve, but we should always strive to achieve them, never give up trying and when we fall short, then learn from it. I have this wee saying, 'do your best better and do your better best'. Think about it, you'll get it . During this time as your Minister and friend I value your friendship and the sense of community spirit I witness in the parish. I hope you value that too, and each other. One last thing, the Lord Jesus Christ values you so so much that He will never turn you away when you call His name.
God loves you - No Matter What
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, it's very comforting and reassuring to know that You think I am worth Your love and that You value me as a child of Yours. May I always remember to thank You and value that truth in my daily life. Amen
You laid aside Your majesty, gave up everything for me.
Suffered at the hands of those You had created.
You took away my guilt and shame,
When You died and rose again.
Now today You reign,
And heaven and earth exalt You.
I really want to worship You my Lord,
You have won my heart and I am Yours.
Forever and ever, I will love You.
You are the only one who died for me,
Gave Your life to set me free.
So I lift my voice to You in adoration.
