Weekend Inspiration

Chaplain’s Message

Some weeks ago, you may recall, that I challenged you to think of the highlight, or one good thing that happened for you in your week.  How did you go with it, and are you still practicing that?   If we can do it on a daily basis, our outlook will be positive, and we will appreciate and love life more.

As recruiting sergeant for my church, I would take people through information classes on becoming a soldier in The Salvation Army.  One of the exercises we carried out was to listen to the news and rad the newspapers for one week.  Make two lists: one of all the good stories and the other of all the bad stories.

At the end of that week, it was very difficult to find any uplifting news.  Why is it that the bad stories seem to attract the most attention?  Where has the world gone wrong?  What is the answer?  Jesus is the answer.

John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.  I came that they may have life and have in abundantly.”

May you remember all the good things that happen to you this week.

Dear Heavenly Father, may we experience the fullness of life that You offer us today.  Amen.

Chaplain Ron
