Just a thought
My mother was more strict than my father.  Perhaps it was because of her disciplined upbringing, and her structured personality.  As a child, I didn’t always appreciate it.  After my mother died of cancer at the age of 45, I slowly began to realize how much my mother loved me through her discipline.  In fact, I felt something missing without it.  Both Proverbs and Hebrews reminds us that the Lord disciplines out of love.  Hebrews goes on to say that whatever hardship we are going through, we should see it as the Lord’s discipline in our lives (Hebrews 12:7).  We may not always appreciate it.  But may we search for God’s love through it.

Sermon Information
This Sunday at both 9AM and 10:30AM, Peter will continue the sermon series on “Sharing Faith Like Jonah” with a second sermon entitled, “Personal Experience“.  Jonah chapter 2 features Jonah’s prayer in the belly of the great fish.  What can we learn from it?  We hope you can join us!
