I've been Rejoicing - 22 July 2018

posted date: Friday 20th July 2018

So this happens to all of us... "Needing to rely on family". 

For most of us, family are the people we can rely on without having to apologise or feel indebted to. There's almost no guilt involved and normally a sense of entitlement when needing a favour from family. Isn't family a blessing.

But what if you have no family living near? Close or extended? 

Who can you rely on, call on, feel free to ask for help without feeling like a burden when you are a stranger living in a foreign land?

I was blessed hugely this week by people who don't belong to me, don't owe me anything and never expected anything in return.

In turn, God has showed his love to me once again by using others faithfulness to him. 

(Mark 12: 30—31 NIV) ..The second most important commandment is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself....' 

(Luke10: 30—37).... "Which of these three do you think was a neighbour to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?" The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him."
