Love Is Good – Good News for May 17

17 05 2009

1 John 4:7-10

Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love.

In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world
so that we might have life through him.

In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins.

The Daily Path is taking me on a little fishing expedition with my sons. I’ll know God today because I love them both!

Room to Chat: Let’s continue to pray for mothers who love their children and worry about their health.

Back In The Boat – Good News for February 16

16 02 2009

Mark 8:11-13

The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him. He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”

Then he left them, got into the boat again, and went off to the other shore.

The Daily Path: There are many days when I just want to climb back into my little boat head off to another shore. Sometimes life’s pharisees get in your face and you realize you’ve had enough “bullogna” for one sitting. In those instances you can deal with it or you can go find some of the joy that God’s put in your life.

“Amen, I’m outta here. Go find yourself someone else to rile up.  God and me are going fishing.”

Room to Chat: Fishing is a great time to talk to God. You’re outdoors and there aren’t many interruptions… at least for most of us.
