a Biblical thought...
May the Master of Peace himself give you the gift of getting along with each other at all times, in all ways. May the Master be truly among you! (2 Thes 3:16)

a Book thought...
The extra happiness provided by extra income is greatest when you are poor, and then declines steadily as you get richer. (p59 Sayers)
a Dave thought...
In the 11am service at Box Hill yesterday it was great to hear teenagers Nathan Begley & Steph Gourd speak on greed, what they thought it, was and how it is impacting the world today. Greed is the selfish desire for or pursuit of money, wealth, power, food, or other possessions, especially when this denies the same goods to others. After hearing their honest thoughts I was quite convicted personally, and realised it is easy to continually want more in our lives often at the expense of others. It seems the more we see, the more we want. I also realised that even though we sometimes tokenly seem to include young people during services before the real message later on, often their words have just as much power or even more than our well researched adult sermons.

Just a thought.
