Message for this week.

 

As we gather for worship this Sunday each of the readings from God's Word address the issue of earthly possessions. Whether it be plentiful good food, riches, power, and honor, even our hand or foot or eye, these things are shown to be of secondary importance. Being blessed to help others, avoiding self–indulgence and praying for others, resisting anything that would cause you or anyone else to fall from grace, these are the sorts of things that characterize the life to which God has called us. James encourages to follow God's priorities, "you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful" (James 5:11). Jesus urges us, "Be at peace with one another" (Mark 9:50). May God strengthen us by his Spirit to do so.
