Friends of The Good Shepherd,

I hope all is well with you and that you are continuing to experience and share each day the love and compassion of God in your life.

 

Last Sunday I spoke about the importance of following Jesus’ teaching to “shake the dust from our feet” as we strive to live as Jesus calls us to live. We can have the greatest intention of being loving and kind and compassionate, then someone says or does something to us and it unsettles us (like cutting us off in traffic or being mean to us) and we lose our focus. We have to be committed to shaking it off and moving on. Let’s not allow others to control us through their words and actions. Let us be committed to following The Way of Love and Compassion, The Way of Jesus. And let’s not allow the negative words and actions of others to stick to our minds and heart. Let’s learn to “shake the dust from our feet.”

 

See you Sunday!

 

Peace!   Pastor Dan
