S T A Y S A F E wash hands
Looking back at the commencement of this year, personally I thought I had the year planned out. Whoever imagined, that because of a widespread pandemic most of our plans had to be postponed or canceled. Plans concerning our family, ministry, job, finances, conferences, vacations, in the blink of an eye came to a halt. Some of us lost jobs, others stood by helplessly as loved ones became sick or even worse. In one way or another no one has been left untouched. What are we to do with this overwhelming sense of frailty? Give up or Trust God? In the letter of James, we see our lives compared to a mist (James 4:14). This includes our plans, self-confidence, financial security, and our lifestyles. All of these will fail us. On the contrary when we commit our work to the LORD, our plans will be established. To commit all our work, is to transfer it (give it away) to someone with a wider shoulder, stronger and able to carry the task through. We must rely on God and depend totally on Him. He supplies, supports, and sustains our lives. To answer my previous question: No! This is not the time to give up. Instead we wave a white flag as a sign of surrendering our plans, our will, our desires, our self-sufficiency, and our finances. We surrender all to the only safe and sure place where to anchor our HOPE. The LORD JESUS CHRIST!!

PRAYING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION Do we, as parents, ever encounter a situation where our kids are too persistent? They keep asking the same thing and will not take no as an answer? I can recall instances when I promised something to my children, and I forgot. Still, out of their memory, they keep asking and persist in having what they have been promised. Should they be thought the same in prayer? Should we encourage them to persist in prayers? So we shall continually pray, encourage them and support them, so that prayers never cease. As the Bible taught us, who asks, receives. 1 Tess. 5:17-19- Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.
“away from you.” The phrase comes from one Greek verb, artheetoo. The verb form is passive, meaning something we have to do, and it is also a command…something we are obliged to do. It carries the concept of taking something from one place to the other. The same verb is used when Jesus told the paralytic, “Arise, take up your bed and go to your house (Matthew 9:1-8). Therefore, the Christian couple should not insist on having the last word, and fuel a fiery argument. Instead, it is better to let it go for having peace at home. Life is much better if the tongue is controlled. However, what comes out from the mouth is usually what is in the heart. Therefore, an honest examination of oneself is always the right thing to do.

Human nature is proud, and we all know that pride comes before a fall. Too many marriages break down because of this primitive sin. Pride is the first sin mentioned that took place in the universe. However, it is clearly seen that we did not learn our lessons. Pride manifests itself in many ways. In marriage, it manifests itself when, during an argument, spouses want to have the last word. Ephesians 4:31, seem to describe a build-up of a vicious argument. We can apply it to a marriage situation. In any heated disagreement, the principle always remains the same (like the one Paul and Barnabas had in Acts 15:39). Nevertheless, in Ephesian 4:31, Paul writes not to harbor the elements of heated arguments. Instead, he commands to put the wording and attitude that fuel the fire
