1 Kings 19:4-8 (Psalm 34:1-8); Ephesians 4:25-5:2; John 6:35, 41-51 | Semi-continuous first reading: 2 Samuel 18:5-9, 15, 31-33 (Psalm 130)
"I have a philosophy about life,” a friend said recently. “The world would be a much better place if people took a moment to let people know about the positive impact they have had on others’ lives. Too much time is spent on negativity. The good in people simply isn’t recognized; too often it is taken for granted.”
Thou shalt not be ridiculous. Paul says, "See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." When Paul wrote that wonderful sentence he probably was sitting in an upper room in Athens. It was late at night, quiet, and all the fools were asleep.
God has become clear in the person of Jesus.
