Lessons to ponder

"Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people."

As we spend more idle time these day, let us promote ideas and values. Let us talk about events as they interest us. But let us never gossip.

"Life is a jigsaw puzzle with most of the pieces missing."

There is much in the future that is unknown to us. There are things going on in the present and the past that remain confusing to us. Yet Jesus is with us all the way and all the time. May we live with ever greater trust and hope in Jesus precisely in this time of upheavel and uncertaintly.

"Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere."

As so many of us have more time on our hands, may we use this time to learn. Study the Scriptures. Read books from our shelves or online. Watch informative and inspirational programs. Talk to one another to benefit from one another's experience and wisdom.
