Good day everyone and praise the Lord for the discernment He gives us. We are saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. There are times in our lives we must stand and fight and there are other times we are to flee trouble. I’m going to take you to scripture to show you an example of a time to flee.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, what gift can we give You, for You have everything? If You want to bring us into union with You, then we must heed Your words – we must deny ourselves, and take up our cross, and follow You. I must realize that Your words run counter to the world’s “Do your own thing.” What can we give You? We can give ourselves, our right to independence, so that we can become Your people. Oh Lord, this day help us to love You enough to give You ourselves – all of ourselves. In Your holy name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Escape to Egypt

Matthew 2:13-18

After the wise men were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up! Flee to Egypt with the child and his mother,” the angel said. “Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” That night Joseph left for Egypt with the child and Mary, his mother, and they stayed there until Herod’s death. This fulfilled what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: “I called my Son out of Egypt.” Herod was furious when he realized that the wise men had outwitted him. He sent soldiers to kill all the boys in and around Bethlehem who were two years old and under, based on the wise men’s report of the star’s first appearance. Herod’s brutal action fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet Jeremiah: “A cry was heard in Ramah—weeping and great mourning. Rachel weeps for her children, refusing to be comforted, for they are dead.”

Quote of the Day

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them– every day begins the task anew.
