Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

From the Desk of Gabby

Mary Said "Yes"

Mary said, “Yes” when God sent the Angel Gabriel to ask her to have Jesus. Mary was nervous and had many questions. But she still said, “Yes.” It’s not always easy to do God’s will.

Listen to God

Mary and Joseph took Jesus to Egypt because God told them to. King Herod was coming after Jesus because he was jealous that Jesus might take his place. They were safe from King Herod in Egypt. It’s hard to listen to God when mom says to clean up my room.

Looking for Jesus

Mary and Joseph lost Jesus and they went looking for Him for three days. Then they found Jesus in the temple. Treat your body like a temple because Jesus is always in our hearts.
