Sowing peace for a righteous harvest

Jesus said to his disciples, “If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you.” [NIV]

The sweetest fruits: self-control

A reading from Paul’s letter to the Galatians, the 5th chapter: 22…The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, 23gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. 24And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit. 26Let us not become conceited, competing against one another, envying one another.

Grief and faith

Paul writes, "Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.
