‘Each Gives What He Has’

What do you have to give?

For over 40 years East Berlin was controlled by the communists. West Berlin was free. One day some people who lived in East Berlin took a truck-load of garbage and dumped it on the West Berlin side. The people of West Berlin could have retaliated by doing the same thing. But instead they took a truckload of canned goods, bread, and milk and neatly stacked it on the East Berlin side. On top of this stack of food they placed the sign: ‘Each gives what he has.’

What do you have to give?

Access To God

For all [saved Christians] who live in fear of  the judgment and the burden of performance to meet the standards of a holy and perfect God –

Remember that our access to God does not depend on yesterday’s performance, today’s practice or tomorrow’s potential (Bob Kauflin). Instead, we’re dearly loved and accepted by a Father of grace and mercy, through Jesus Christ.

May this set you free to live for Jesus, without guilt or fear, through the grace offered by God the Father.

Wishing you every blessing in Christ Jesus,

A New Leaf

For anyone that might be struggling with mistakes of the past….May you know the grace and mercy of God through this poem.

He came to my desk with quivering lip–
The lesson was done.
“Dear Teacher I want a new leaf,” he said,
“I have spoiled this one.”
I took the old leaf, stained and blotted,
And gave him a new one all unspotted,
And into his sad eyes smiled,
“Do better now, my child.”

I went to the throne with a quivering soul–
The old year [day] was done.
“Dear Father, hast Thou a new leaf for me?
I have spoiled this one.”
He took the old leaf, stained and blotted,
And gave me a new one all unspotted,
And into my sad heart smiled,
“Do better now, My child.”
— Kathleen Wheeler

Every Blessing, with prayers….
