Life is precious!

Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. Romans 12 : 17

Good morning, friends. Below is the story/incident that describes how easily we can put others’ hopes into a trash.

Jack took a long look at his speedometer before slowing down: 71 in a 55 zone. The cop was stepping out of his car, the big pad in hand. Jumping out of the car, he approached Bob whom he saw every Sunday, a man he’d never seen in uniform. “Hi, Bob. Fancy meeting you like this.” “Hello, Jack.” No smile. “Guess you caught me red-handed in a rush to see my wife and kids.” “Yeah, I guess”, Bob replied. “I’ve been some long days at the office lately. I’m afraid I bent the rules a bit-just this once.” Seventy-one? Jack would you sit back in your car, please?” saying this, Bob scribbled away on the pad. Why hadn’t he asked for a driver’s license? Jack rolled down the window a mere two inches, just enough room for Bob to pass him the slip. Bob returned to his car without a word. Jack unfolded the sheet of paper. How much was this one going to cost? Wait a minute. What was this? Some kind of joke? Jack began to read out of curiosity:

Dear Jack,

Once upon a time I had a daughter, Rosy. She was six when killed by a car. You guessed it - a speeding driver. A fine and three months in jail, and the man was free, free to hug his all three of his daughters. I only had one, and I’m going to have to wait until heaven before I can ever hug her again. A thousand times I’ve tried to forgive that man. A thousand times I thought I had. Maybe I did, but I need to do it again. Even now. Pray for me. And be careful. My son is all I have left.

- Bob

A full 15 minutes later, Jack started his car and drove slowly home, praying for forgiveness and hugging a surprised wife and kids when he arrived.

Yes, life is precious. Handle with care. Remember whatever you do, that will somehow impact others. Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Hebrews 10 : 24.When you do something wrong knowingly or even carelessly, please be reminded that you’re damaging many than you create something positive when you do good to others. Pay more attention before you do anything. Never use your life for granted and use this single life to leave sad non erasable traces in the hearts of Bobs and Rosys anymore. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5 : 16. Let us be a true blessing to others in everything.

May God bless!

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…
