Today is Richard’s Birthday, so we got together last night to celebrate. Since we moved and now have the space, we have started having monthly family dinners. Doing this keeps them from isolating themselves, which is easy to do when the television keeps harping on a “pandemic.”
I tend to write a lot about the tragedy of this world and the expected coming of Jesus. Yes, this world is disappointing, but if we keep our attention on Jesus, then the battles we fight are not in vain. Remember, everything is not tragic; God has given us people to love, and we must love them with all our hearts. The following verses are vital to staying on task with the assignment given to us by God. Learn to live according to his Word, and it will make existing during this time in history much more joyful.
Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:12-14
