Weekly Parish News
As we continue to meditate on the story of Naaman, we can see that Naaman would have missed the miracle, if he had allowed his ego and pride to reject, the beautiful healing God was offering him through the little girl, Elisha and the servants. Praise God!!, he listened and humbled himself The Bible tells us in James 4:6, God rejects the proud but gives grace to the humble (NIV). Humility is not optional for a Christian but a requirement. God in Christ gave us the ultimate example to follow by humbling himself to die on the cross for us (Phil 2:8, NIV). We must seek to walk humbly before our God (Micah 6:8, NIV), when we learn to be humble with God, humility with others will follow. No person can live in wickedness yet claim to walk humbly with God. Walking with Christ transforms us more and more into his likeness (2 Cor 3:18, NLT). Don’t miss the miracle through pride.
Be kind and considerate.
All of us have come through two hard years of lockdown and restrictions, please show kindness to one another and live peaceably with others. Please extend graciousness in word and deed.
We give thanks
