THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: February 26

Thought for the week.
Thought for the week.

So many things have changed with new technology, new laws and new ways of looking at things generally.

Some are very simple things.

For instance, some young people today will stay rooted in their seats on the bus while elderly and disabled passengers stand.

Queueing for anything is now a thing of the past.

The rule is, ‘I want so I’ll push to the front’.

Words like courtesy and respect spring to mind.

Yet so many advances are an improvement on the past.

Advances in medical treatment, better living conditions and safer transport are just three examples.

However, there is one thing that never changes and that is the love of God shown to the world by the sacrifice of his only Son over 2,000 years ago.

God is constant.

He never changes and he is there for everyone who calls on him.

In the words of the hymn: “Yesterday, today, forever Jesus is the same.

“All may change but Jesus never - glory to his name.”

So, why not thank God today for his steadfast and unchanging love?
