July 3, 2016: What Message Shall We Give?
The Word of God this Sunday is filled with divine words and messages we are to proclaim in word and deed. Say "Peace to this household." "The Kingdom of God is at hand for you" (Jesus). Offer comfort as a nursing mother comforts her child (Isaiah). Offer peace and mercy and grace to others (Paul).
Our world and so many people in our world are yearning for this kind of message. Violence, hate, greed, bigotry, racism, and many other evils fly in the face of God's hope and desire for us.
How do you receive God's message in your heart? What message will you give through your words and deeds?
