Wanna spread EAFLU? Part IV

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. Today let us read about ‘F’orgive.

John’s father had suffered a stroke and his mother had been in a serious accident. They both are now unable to respond to him in anyway. There are areas in John’s life in which he needs and wants his parents’ forgiveness, but because they are physically unable to communicate, he cannot be sure that they understand him. Everyday he goes to the hospital and asks their forgiveness, but he gets no response. The situation is robbing him of any joy.

There are countless Johns in the world who want more than anything else than to be forgiven. In fact Jesus gives much importance to forgiveness when he showed His disciples how to pray. “Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” He also says, “If you have grudge against anyone, first leave the offering and go and reconcile with them and then come to offer.” So the first step you do to be forgiven is to forgive others! I know some people don’t deserve it, but still remember God has forgiven us even when we were sinners. Forgiveness should be given as quickly and as totally as possible. Do it now. Too often we wait too long to forgive others. Don’t be in a position of John who no longer has the opportunity to communicate to his parents. Make hay while the sun shines. And the next important thing is you should also forget whatever happened. Many times, even if we forgive others, we’ll keep the history in our heart and mind. We have a very small heart, then why to dump waste things into it? Use it fruitfully. I know it's quite easy to say, but too difficult to follow. Through Him, we can do anything.

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
