SCREAMING PILLOWS

Psalms 119:1-2,4-5,17-18,33-34; I Corinthians 2:6-10; Matthew 5:17-37 "... go and be reconciled with your brother first" (Matthew 5:24). It seems clear, and for a variety of reasons, that many people feel as though we are living in difficult days. Perhaps your are among them. In an apparent response to that mood, there was an amusing image portrayed recently in a popular magazine. Pictured in a department store is a shopper, standing in front of an attractive display of neatly stacked pillows. The store clerk is pointing to the shelves as he says, "No. These are pillows for screaming into. You'll find our sleeping pillows on the second floor." Of course, difficult days summon in us a variety of emotions. And while screaming into our pillows is far better than taking out our frustrations on those closest to us, the Gospel writers tell us, over-and-over again, that there is a Truly better way. Put your faith and trust in God's plan for living and you will be blest. Your faith will bring you happiness. Your faith will bring you fulfillment. Your faith will bring you ever closer to becoming the person God created you to be. Indeed, it is your steadfast faith that will transform your most difficult days into Blessed days of fulfillment. Jesus came into this world and preached a Good News Gospel about God's Rule and God's Love. Time and again, and in many different ways, He said, "You will recognize by their fruits the persons whose faith and trust in God's ways bring them into His Kingdom." You will know them, He said, by the difference this faith and trust has made in the way they live. And because their faith and trust in God have made a difference in the way they live, they are blest, they are happy. Sunday Sermons Online sermoneditor@voicings.com
