HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
1-If we truly believe that God loves us, we will trust him-
2-Submission is not about authority or obedience, it is all about relationships of love and respect-
3-Abolish God and the government becomes God-
4-People never do evil so willingly and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction-
5-It is almost impossible to rescue someone if they are not willing to trust you-
STRANGE THOUGHT-A friend of mine has a nose ring. She keeps the volume low, though, and sets it to vibrate while in church-
I'VE LEARNED-God didn't create everything in one day, so what makes me think I can?
DID YOU KNOW-The expression "getting someone's goat" is based on the custom of keeping a goat in the sable with a racehorse as the horse's companion. The goat became a settling influence for the thoroughbred. If you owned a competing horse and were not above some dirty business, you could steal your rival's goat to upset the other horse and make it run a poor race-
5 THINGS I WANT TO KNOW
1-Is anger always a sin?
2-How can we have the right attitude of morality in our life that we would rather tear out our eye or cut off our hand than commit sin?
3-How narrow was Jesus' teaching on the rightness or wrongness of divorce?
4-How important is it to keep promises we make to God or others?
5-Did Jesus teach that we shouldn't make an oath?

SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY Matthew 23:37-39
37 "Jerusalem, Jerusalem! You kill the prophets and stone to death those who are sent to you. Many times I wanted to gather your people as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you did not let me.38 Now your house will be left completely empty. 39 I tell you, you will not see me again until that time when you will say, 'God bless the One who comes in the name of the Lord.' "
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Prayer from Colossians 1:9-13: A prayer suitable for each of us to pray for our brothers and sisters in the faith, both near and far.
