KEEPING THE FIRST THING FIRST: LESSONS FROM MARY AND MARTHA

Published on :

The story of Mary and Martha serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of keeping the first thing first in our lives. By prioritizing our relationship with God, we can avoid a victim mentality, take responsibility for our choices, and find fulfillment in aligning our actions with His will. Let us learn from Mary’s example and make intentional efforts to sit at Jesus’ feet, allowing His teachings to guide our lives.

JOY TO THE WORLD

Celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ is more than a Christian holiday or a Christian festival. It is an opportunity to pause and give thanks for the love, hope, and joy found in Jesus – our Saviour and friend. As we exchange gifts with loved ones, it is out of remembrance of the gift God gave us in Jesus. The gift is that we are loved, are never alone, and can have hope for the future.

FIGHT PROCRASTINATION

People also procrastinate because they ignore the value of time.  Everyone has a limited time to spend on earth. In light of this, time is the most valuable commodity you have. It’s not money; unlike time, you can borrow money, save, or earn more. You can’t do that with time. Every single second you waste is gone forever. It is important you value time and use it wisely. Seneca said, “While we waste our time hesitating and postponing, life is slipping away.”

LOVE

Love so true; pure; overwhelming; unconditional and beautiful; love I have never experienced.

I was bitten, battered, broken, destroyed, hopeless, scared and had no place to run to. With a lost identity and dignity, filthy and as dirty as a pig, I roam the streets with nobody willing to help.

Then He came in His beautiful royal apparel and a charming smile. He stretched forth His hands and said to me: “Come! Come, I will give you rest.”

WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?

Published on :

Showing gratitude has benefits or advantages both to the person showing appreciation and the person receiving it. Gratitude improves the well-being of the giver and the recipient. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, lower levels of depression, and build strong relationships. It allows people (the receiver) to feel that they are needed and that their efforts are valued.
