Forsyth Park Caller February 2024

What If?

What if God couldn’t take the time to bless us today because we couldn’t take the time to thank Him yesterday?
What if God decided to stop leading us tomorrow because we didn’t follow Him today?
What if we never saw another flower bloom because we grumbled when God sent the rain?
What if God took away the Bible tomorrow because we wouldn’t read it today?
What if God took away the message because we wouldn’t listen to the messenger?
What if God didn’t send His only begotten Son because He wanted us to pay the price of sin?
What if the door of the church was closed because we would not open the door of our heart?
What if God stopped loving and caring for us because we stopped loving and caring for others?
What if God would not hear us because we would not listen to Him?
What if God answered our prayers the way we answer His call to serve others?
What if God met our needs the way we give Him our lives?
Think about the judgment we would face if all these came true.

Sayings of Abraham Lincoln

“Stand with anybody that stands right. Stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.”
“Gold is good in its place, but living, brave, patriotic men are better than gold.”
“Universal idleness would speedily result in universal ruin.”
“The Lord prefers common-looking people. That is the reason He makes so many of them.”
“No man is poor who has a Godly mother.”
“I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.”

Unconditional Love

Is your love patient and kind? Is it able to suffer long, to endure every strain placed upon it in human relations, and still love? Is your love as steadfast in pointing to God’s love as is the needle of the compass in pointing to the north? Is your love undiscouraged even by repeated ingratitude and recurrent failures on the part of others? Patience and kindness are the fruits of having Christ live in you. Are you nourishing your life upon His life by prayer and worship and studying His Word? If so, the fruit of patient and kind love will grow and be available for the healing of other lives.
