Unexpected

Honey bees working !

My wife and I plus our 6 year old daughter were having a relaxing day today when the phone rang. A man on the other end had a situation on his hands and needed our help. He needed to take one of his trailers to the dump when he heard a lot of buzzing. Not thinking, he grabbed a can of wasp killer and started to spray the flying insects. Once he noticed that they were not wasps but honey bees he stopped and called me to come remove them. Upon arrival he showed us where the bees were going in. It was a rather large cabinet too big to remove from the trailer so we had to work around it. We had a chance to show some of his relatives that were there making it educational and fun. We were able to remove the bees and the honey comb safely and quickly while having fun in the process. Praise God we were able to help and show kindness and help out on this beautiful Sabbath day. God isn’t asking us to go to church and return home only to sit there all day. We are to go out and do good for others by showing his love. Luke 6:6-11

“On a certain Sabbath Jesus was walking through a field of ripe grain. His disciples were pulling off heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands to get rid of the chaff, and eating them. Some Pharisees said, “Why are you doing that, breaking a Sabbath rule?”

But Jesus stood up for them. “Have you never read what David and those with him did when they were hungry? How he entered the sanctuary and ate fresh bread off the altar, bread that no one but priests were allowed to eat? He also handed it out to his companions.”

On another Sabbath he went to the meeting place and taught. There was a man there with a crippled right hand. The religion scholars and Pharisees had their eye on Jesus to see if he would heal the man, hoping to catch him in a Sabbath infraction. He knew what they were up to and spoke to the man with the crippled hand: “Get up and stand here before us.” He did.

He looked around, looked each one in the eye. He said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” He held it out—it was as good as new! They were beside themselves with anger, and started plotting how they might get even with him. Then he said, “The Son of Man is no slave to the Sabbath; he’s in charge.”

Then Jesus addressed them, “Let me ask you something: What kind of action suits the Sabbath best? Doing good or doing evil? Helping people or leaving them helpless?””

We may have problems in life but God takes care of us so that we can go out and show love too. God bless all of you and your family.
