Paul urges us to reject ‘earthly’ values and centre our lives on Christ who himself in the Gospel points out the foolishness of depending on the material possessions of this life and forgetting that we are dependent on God for our life, the God who is loving and compassionate (despite his people’s unfaithfulness) as stressed by Hosea.
‘O give thanks to the Lord for he is good: for his loving mercy is for ever.’ (Psalm)
Give thanks for the work and witness of the Church of the Province of Myanmar.
