John 15:18-21

Jesus said to his disciples, “If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.

Remember the word I spoke to you, ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me.”

The Daily Path: If the world constantly lets us down why do we continue to place greater emphasis on living a worldly life rather than a spiritual life?

Room to Chat: A mother I know is terribly worried about the poor health of her son. She is not alone. This weekend millions of other mothers around the globe will feel the same anxiety she does. Let’s ask God to hold these babies close,  regardless of their age, and their mothers, too. Place trust in Him.
