‘Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we possess, for He who promised is faithful’… Hebrews 10
at a silent sky
drowns in the flotsam
of careless greed
cradles the child
snatched early from the womb
cries out in the street
to ears that cannot hear
‘God, you are my God, I seek you,
my soul thirsts for you, as in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.’ Psalm 63
But for those of us who believe, He is the rock of our salvation.
‘…the mighty acts of him who called us out of the darkness into his marvellous light. Once we were not a people but now we are God’s people…’
Jesus said to them, ‘Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life doesn’t consist in the abundance of possessions.’…
‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear, for life is more than food and the body more than clothing’…
‘For it is the nations of the world that strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead strive for His kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well’.
