THIS WEDNESDAY, at our Midweek service, we consider the disciples. They failed to see that Jesus had to leave them so He could die and rise for them and for us. And they misjudged the selfless, loving act of the woman who anointed Jesus with expensive ointment. He saw it as a beautiful, selfless act of devotion that prepared Him for burial. We need to examine ourselves, lest we seek public approval or divine reward for our good deeds. Only what our Lord has done for us makes us pleasing to the Father.

 

THANK YOU Arlean Pfanstiel wishes to thank everyone who thought of her on her 90th birthday by sending beautiful cards and flowers, or attending her party. “God has blessed me through my family and friends.”
