a Jesus thought...
When you help someone out, don't think about how it looks. Just do it—quietly and unobtrusively. That is the way your God, who conceived you in love, working behind the scenes, helps you out. (Matthew 6:4)

a Godly thought...
Jesus bids his disciples to persevere in the practices of humiliation, but not to force them on other people as a rule or regulation. (p153 Bonhoeffer)

a leading thought...
When once a person or a group begins to do something for God's glory, opposition is only a stone's throw away. (p42 Barber)
a Dave thought...
Last night I was part of Carol Service at Inala Village. Box Hill band & singing company along with Waverley timbrels were part of a concert that featured a very religious Santa Claus. My son Noah, commented about how good it was to meet the real Santa and said before he had only met his helpers.

Well as much as Christmas is a fun, but busy month of the year it seems to create a lot of selfishness too. As my son keeps adjusting his Christmas list and telling us another thing he wants, I have to acknowledge Christmas is way more about us than the birthday we are preparing for, so we have somehow put the us back into usmas.

Anyway it is sad that we have to spend so much money and turn the biggest birthday of the year into a spend fest but if we didn't unfortunately few would join in.

Just a thought.
