    Envy

    This is an excellent post by Manu and if you missed it the first time around then I recommend a read. It is about Moses, Miriam and Aaron and the effect of sibling rivalry, envy and unhealthy comparisons. God takes action. As members of one body and brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus we need […]

  • Blind Spots

    Blind Spots

    A place you cannot see; your view is obstructed; an area your understanding or knowledge is weak – sometimes because we are unwilling to try – Cambridge definitions Jesus warns us about two examples of blind spots and these bible verses will be familiar to us. “And why do you look at the speck in […]

    Seeking the outcast..

    Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of God?” He answered and said, “Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” And Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him and it is He who […]

  • Feeding others..

    Feeding others..

    The miracle of the feeding of the five thousand by Jesus has much to teach us today. The story is told in all four gospels. This verse from Mark’s gospel stood out to me. “But He (Jesus) answered and said to them, “You give them something to eat.” Mark.6.37 To set the context. The disciples […]

  • Understanding..

    Understanding..

    “And He (Jesus) opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.” Luke.24.45 Understanding what we read or hear is so important. We can have knowledge but no understanding.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you”. Matthew 5 11-12 These bible verses are the verses for today on […]

    Persecuted…

    “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to […]

  • Abounding in Love

    Abounding in Love

    1 Thessalonians 3 v 12-13 says “and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all; just as we do to you so that He (God) may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all […]

  • I have something to say…

    I have something to say…

    And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” So he said, “Teacher, say it.” Luke 7:40 I read this passage of Scripture this morning and it really got me thinking about how Jesus approached Simon with an important truth that he wanted Simon to hear and understand. Jesus […]
