                            Where are you with your daily Bible reading?
     
  Last year around this time, many of us obtained a special issue of the Daily Bible, designed to complete the
Bible readings in 365 days. If some of us were unable to accomplish this by years end, please do not give up. Start
today. Continue where you left off. It’s important to take time to comprehend and reflect on God’s message.
Remember this is one on one. This is something we all should do. It is a privilege and a blessing.
       II Timothy 2:15 - “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.”


       Love you all,  Jim

STEPPING STONES
DINNER AUCTION

congregation for all the support you gave

basket in the foyer with a sample of the
yarn and cards with the information for you
to take. See Joyce Sprague with questions.

                                                                         JESUS WAS A GIVER

   “I have coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel.  Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for
my necessities, and for those who were with me.   I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you
must support the weak.  And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to
receive’” (Acts 20:33-35).
       Jesus came to give.  He did not come to be served, but to serve others.  He gave up His place in heaven
(Philippians 2:5-7).  He gave up the luxuries of life (Matthew 8:20).  He gave up His rights (Matthew 27:11-14).  He
gave up His life (John 10:17-18).  Jesus said the greatest love that could ever be shown would be to give one’s life
for his friends (John 15:13).
