Just a Thought February 16th – 17th
Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. “Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place.”
Christ is not abolishing the Ten Commandments, He is demanding of his followers a more perfect, a more sincere, fulfillment of them.
We must not say or do anything to injure our neighbor or one another, in his person, or in his character, but we must be ever ready to help and prevent injury to him, whenever and wherever we can.
We must be truthful, this virtue is so necessary in our relationship with God and each another, for the man who speaks the truth has God in his heart. God gave us the Ten Commandments not to put a burden on us, but to show our gratitude to God that we are His children, and then to do our part to make God’s world what He created it to be, by living and following the Ten Commandments.
Friends, we are so loved, always be mindful that God will never ask of us anything we cannot accomplish with His presence in us.
Perhaps this week we can look around our own world, where we live, work, gather, and see if we can bring some joy, peace and a Christ’s Presence to those we care about, just by being who God calls us to be.
Have a blessed week, you are daily in my prayers. God bless us one and all.
