Peace – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark:#2 of 9: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

Challenge:

As you connect (and disconnect) with your circles of family, friends, co-workers, and even strangers, keep in mind that you have more in common with these people than you may think. Ask God to help remind you of these sometimes hidden common bonds that will help to penetrate the unnecessary walls we put between others and ourselves.

Reference:

We ought therefore to show hospitality to such men so that we may work together for the truth. 3 John 1:8 (NABRE)

Thought:

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark:#1 of 9: Don’t miss the boat.
