  1. I always loved the part about, “Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt.” We are shown here we can put out the fire of God’s Spirit, by our free will choices. May we never do that? Moreover, prophecies of the Bible are the promises of God of His Word being true, all the prophecies of Christ first coming came true to the letter, so will all the prophecies of His second coming, things to celebrate indeed.

  2. Thank you for this today. My heart needed to hear this and be reminded that work is not what we are all about. Tomorrow my husband goes back to a job he just found out no longer exists for him. He is struggling as he has worked for the company for almost 30 years and I am not sure how to help him right now. Just praying and trying to remember God is in control

  3. Our church has a prayer list in the bulletin. Anyone can add someone or take a name off. If you give the pastor a card explaining the reason for putting the name on the list he will read it out to congregation.

    Ours is a small church, but a very caring family. My dad was put on the list this week and 1 friend is sending a card, another is calling him and the pastor and his wife visited him this week, a 40 mile round trip for them.

    I try my best to pray for every one on the list–even if I don’t know them personally. I try to spread sunshine everywhere I go–try to make people smile.
