TODAY (Green) Zec 9:9-10; Rom 8:9,11-13; Mt 11:25-30

NEXT WEEK (Green) Is 55:10-11; Rom 8:18-23; Mt 13:1-23

What are the things hidden from the wise but revealed to the little ones? The previous verses from Matthew’s’ chapter 11 indicate that “these things” are the destruction resulting from being unfaithful to God’s “gracious will.” The “little ones” are those who, having received Jesus’ revelation about the Father, remain faithful and enter into God’s reign of peace. The faithful, having come to Jesus and taken His yoke upon themselves, live in God’s peace now. These faithful ones need have no fear of Jesus’ judgment.

MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES
God of all goodness, look with love on those who wait for the safe return of their loved ones who serve in the armed forces of their country. In faith and hope we turn to you for comfort. Grant that we may trust in your mercy and send an angel to sustain us as we await their safe return. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

CHRISTIANSHIP STEWARDSHIP
Are you having trouble balancing your budget in these inflationary times? Does it sometimes occur to you that when one puts God first, one’s money is likely to last longer? Scripture does contain God’s written guarantee that tithers will not be losers. You can find that guarantee in Malachi 3:10. “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and try me in this, says the Lord of hosts. Shall I not open for you the floodgates of heaven, to pour down blessing upon you without measure?” Your giving is the key to the success of church plans and programs. To help us meet our obligations, please pray about TITHING and become GOOD STEWARDS by obtaining Offertory Envelopes available in the Marian Hall as a weekly reminder to support your church.
