God’s love-gifts

by Dan Phillips

God shows His love by giving His children to the world as its salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16), responding to its abuses with love, prayer, blessing, and service (5:44-48; cf. Romans 12:14-21), bringing unbelievers collateral blessings by their presence (Proverbs 11:11; 28:12; Jeremiah 29:7; 1 Timothy 2:1-4).

Being salt and light is the hard part.
Staying salty is important, as well as to keep shining.
It takes a lot of encouragement, and building-up to do this.

That's what you all do here at TeamPyro.

Thanks, and keep it going. The Lord is blessing His Church through this ministry of yours.

This is deep stuff that will take a while to mull over, and definitely an exemplar of the Frank's "50 words or less" idea, from the man who gave Frank the idea in the first place!

By the way, counting hyphens and spaces as word-separators (thus counting "1 Timothy" as two words) and including the subject line in the word count, you come in at exactly 50 words! Good job!
