Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-25
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
It has been an “exciting” kid week in our house.
My oldest got his first bee sting. It has been the first bee sting our children have experienced that they remember. His sister was stung when she was under a year and it was devastating! He handled it well…really well…until I hugged him and then he fell apart.
My daughter finally has 2 loose teeth…her brother has lost a handful and she has been waiting pretty patiently and definitely with eagerness.
And my youngest who may possibly have the biggest heart of anyone, but who also is quite curious, fierce hugging, all boy and rather wreckless, fell on the back of his head this weekend while playing…small scrape, but being as it was his head, lots of blood. This child will make me gray. He is okay…completely! 🙂
Something else we began working on this week is addressing adults by saying “sir” or “ma’am” or their name (Mr./Mrs. _________). They have always used last names with adults, but when they address people I want them to use those names in greetings and thank yous, etc, or in yeses or nos. My oldest is doing quite well. The other two are a little shy, but will get there.
That is a week in our life. 🙂
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…
If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right.
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
