Pondering for Friday, December 31, 2021

Today is the Seventh Day of Christmas and the start of our Sabbath Day.

Morning Prayer Readings for December 31st: Year 2

 Psalm 46 and 48;
1st Kings 3:5 to 14James 4:13 to 17 and  5:7 to 11John 5:1 to 15:

“It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this.” (1st Kings 3: 10)

The new young king Solomon prayed to God for the understanding necessary to lead God’s people. God was pleased that Solomon did not ask for riches or for harm to his enemies. At this point in his life Solomon was genuine about wanting to do the right thing.

So too may we be granted understanding that enables us to live loving lives void of negativity towards others. Merry Christmas: Day 7

Prayer, with forgiveness, is the greatest of gifts we can ever give to anyone, for Christmas, or anytime. Jesus is everywhere.  Merry Christmas: Day 6

As followers of the Christ of Christmas, we should do whatever he tells us.  Merry Christmas: Day 5

We are never to hurt or harm children, only love them, teach them, save and help them. Children are what Christmas is all about. Merry Christmas: Day 4

The testimony of John the apostle about our Lord Jesus is true; Believe.  Merry Christmas: Day 3

Let us not take our hate or ill will for another with us to our mortal death.  Merry Christmas: Day 2

Our being saved has as much to do with the birth of Jesus as it does his Resurrection from the dead.  Merry Christmas: Day 1

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all their multitude. And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done” (Genesis 2:1 and 2). So, for this evening and tomorrow day my friends, Shabbat Shalom. 

As we listen to what the Spirit is saying to us, let us live to love, to serve, and to teach, while pondering anew what the Almighty can do. John
