But, "If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him a drink. If you do this, you will make him feel guilty and ashamed. Don't let evil conquer you, but conquer evil with good." - Romans 12:20,21
We are in the season of Lent which encourages us to prepare for the Easter celebration. It is a time for reflection and self-examination. Because the Easter message is all about hope for the world, our challenge to everyone is not so much “what are you giving up for Lent?” Rather it is “To whom can I bring hope?” Every Sunday morning our service will have the theme “Hope Changes Everything – In Christ there is always hope!”
Readings for this week’s meditation: Hope where there is hatred - Luke 10:25-37; 1 John 4:7-21; Romans 12:9-21
Lets be in prayer for the upcoming election. With things like the Nkandla report, cracks in the labour movement and the mining strikes, this could be a tension filled time. Lets pray that violence and intimidation will be held in check and that we will again see a peaceful election.
