Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life, you have the words of everlasting life - Daily Bible Readings September 16,2015

Paul made it a point to visit the communities he established. He would stay for an extended time with them in order to get them started. He also wrote to them frequently. Paul wanted the communities to know that he cared for them. He expressed his love through the introductions in his letters. Let us love with much fervor the faith communities to which we belong, and be committed to each member.
1 Timothy 3:14-16
14 Beloved: I am writing you, although I hope to visit you soon. 15 But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the  household of God, which is the Church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth. 16 Undeniably great is the mystery of devotion, who was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed to the Gentiles, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory.
Psalm 111:1-2, 3-4, 5-6
R: How great are the works of the Lord!
1 I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart in the company and assembly of the just. 2 Great are the works of the Lord, exquisite in all their delights. (R) 3 Majesty and glory are his work, and his justice endures forever. 4 He has won renown for his wondrous deeds; gracious and merciful is the Lord. (R) 5 He has given food to those who fear him; he will forever be mindful of his covenant. 6 He has made known to his people the power of his works, giving them the inheritance of the nations. (R)
You cannot please everyone. It does not matter what sort of coffee you give them. They will find fault with it. Have you ever met anyone like this? It is a challenge to love people who are hard to please, but love them we must. Jesus persevered with us through all our faults and failures. Let us be generous in the way we persevere with others. After all, we will probably be spending eternity with them.
Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life, you have the words of everlasting life.
Luke 7:31-35
31 Jesus said to the crowds: “To what shall I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? 32 They are like children who sit in the marketplace and call to one another, ‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance. We sang a dirge, but you did not weep.’ 33 For John the Baptist came neither eating food nor drinking wine, and you said, ‘He is possessed by a demon.’ 34 The Son of Man came eating and drinking and you said, ‘Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ 35 But wisdom is vindicated by all her children.”
think: Let us love with fervor the faith communities to which we belong and be committed to each member.
