What is that?

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Exodus 20 : 12


Good morning, friends. I watched a video and it's too good conveying the following.

A gentleman reads the newspaper and his father sits beside him in the garden. The old man hears some sound from the near by bush and asks his son, "What is that?". His son turns around and replies, "It is a sparrow." A few seconds later, the father again asks, "What is that?" The young man gets tensed somehow, but replies, "I just now told you father. It's a sparrow." Then the sparrow flies and sits here and there making sound. He again asks, "What is that?" The son replies, "A sparrow dada, a sparrow" and he spells it out, "a s-p-a-r-r-o-w" and starts shouting, "Why are you doing this? I told you so many times. It's a sparrow. Can't you get it?" The old man starts walking inside the house and brings his old diary. He opens it up and turns it till he finds something and asks his son to read it aloud. The man reads, "Today my youngest son who a few days ago turned three was sitting with me in a park when a sparrow sat in front of us. My son asked 21 times what it was. I answered it 21 times that it was a sparrow. I hugged him every single time he asked me the same question again and again without getting mad, feeling affection for my innocent little boy." The guy stops reading and starts hugging and kissing his loving father.

Are you getting what it conveys? I watched it again and again. I have never seen my mom and dad buying something costlier for themselves, eating delicious food, going to tourist spots, etc,... They silently and willingly watch me enjoying everything. Whenever I think of my parents and the love they have towards me, I simply ask myself some questions. "Am I really worthy of this great love? How many times have I neglected their simple desires? How many times have I reciprocated the love I get from them? Or at least how often I pray for them? bla bla..." See, it is not too late to support them spiritually, financially, mentally with love. Better late than never. Because they deserve it!!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
