In light of what we have seen in
our nation's capital on Wed.,
January 6, 2021, and
for all the violence we have
seen during the year 2020
taken out on innocent people
and on citizen's businesses and
personal property in the midst of
riots and unruly mobs:
  

"Repay no one evil for evil,

but give thought to do what

is honorable in the sight of all.

If possible, so far as it depends

on you, live peaceably with all.

 

.... Do not be overcome by evil,

   but overcome evil with good."

 

Romans 12:17-18, 21 (ESV)

 

"Walk as children of light

(for the fruit of light is found in

all that is good and right and true),

 and try to discern what is pleasing

to the Lord. Take no part in the

unfruitful works of darkness,

but instead expose them."

 

Ephesians 5:8-11 (ESV)

 

Our communities, our nation,

our world needs to see Christ

in us, more than ever.

 

  "But the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness,
self-control; against such
things there is no law.
And those who belong to
Christ Jesus have crucified
the flesh with its passions
and desires. If we live by
the Spirit, let us also keep
in step with the Spirit."
 
 Galatians 5:22-25 (ESV)

Pray for the real-life needs of

people in our community.
