Weekly Moravian Message: March 18, 2018

Fifth Sunday in Lent

Surprise

“Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies”

S

O

W

When the

good seed falls on the

earth, the soil surrounds

the wheat seed faith. The water

softens the hard hull covering

the love inside. The sun warms

the good seed with

real hope.

God gives the growth.

Spring surprises us.

The Savior rose again.

Prayer: Creator, sustain our faith, love, and hope so we might sustain good growth in the congregations we call home. Amen.

Friday, August 17 — Psalm 100
Joshua 24:14–Judges 1:16; Luke 18:1–17

The Lord said, “You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight. Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city?” Jonah 4:10–11 (NASB)

Do not seek your own advantage, but that of the other. 1 Corinthians 10:24

Creating Lord—you trusted us with one of the biggest responsibilities of all time: to care for your creation and all that is in it. Creation speaks to us and cannot be pushed past its boundaries. Help us tune our ears to listen to the voices that do not sound like ours. Amen.
