Wanna spread EAFLU? Part - II

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7 : 12

Good morning, friends. Now it’s the time for us to read about ‘E’ in EAFLU. In fact you often expect others to do this to you. Did you guess it right? It is nothing but ‘Encourage.’ You realize it or not, but most of your friends are those who encourage you. Go ahead to read about what Eugene Lang did.

Entrepreneur Lang was success magazine’s ‘Successful man of the year’ in 1986. 61 six graders were assembled in an auditorium in blue caps and gowns. Lang addressed them this way. “This is your first graduation and is the just perfect time to dream. Dream of what you want to be, the kind of life you wish to build. Believe in that dream. Be prepared to work for it. Always remember it’s your dream and it’s so important and it’s your future. And it is worth working for. You must study.” The children blinked their eyes and so their parents as their place a poverty stricken, drug-ridden neighborhood. But when Lang said, “You must study. You must attend junior high school, high school and then college. So stay in school and I’ll……. Give each of you a college scholarship”, there were joyful expressions like cheering, waving and hugging one another happened. Not just he spoke, but he did. He began the ‘I have a dream’ foundation and now the entrepreneurs in New York City are also going into classrooms offering the same kind of scholarships.

How amazing it is even to read! Eugene Lang believed in these kids and it all made the difference in how they lived the rest of their lives. There is no way to describe the joy of having a young person touch your arm and smile because you have taught him new values and touched his heart and mind. The happiest persons are those who invested their time in others.

In my personal experience, I would like to say this.

We all went to an orphanage to greet the children and offer something they needed. It’s been more than a year since I’ve visited for the first time. Recently, I visited there again. To my surprise, they all remembered my name and the story I’ve shared with them. They taught me songs and more importantly, they wanted me to sit next to them, to touch me. And another thing that amazed me was, they have a notebook in which they wrote all the names of the people who helped them and at 4 AM they all wake up everyday and pray for each one of them.

What else do we need in this life, friends? A simple kind word or a help touches people’s heart more than anything! Encourage others as much as you can. You’ll see the world so beautiful around you.

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…
