THERE is an old saying which states, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but calling names will not hurt me”.
Last week someone sent out a letter to members of a group which implied that I had thanked certain people for the work that they done over the past months but not others for their labours.
This was totally untrue and another member sent out an e-mail to that effect, saying that he hoped that I was not offended.
I wasn’t upset, but a little concerned that my actions had been so misconstrued.
Before He was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus Christ told His disciples that one of them would betray Him and another would deny even knowing Him.
Both Judas and Simon Peter had been disciples of Jesus for three years and had been involved in many of the wondrous things that the Lord had done over that period of time.
Judas acted out of greed for money but Peter denied Jesus because he feared the same fate.
In hindsight we know that Jesus Christ went through all his agony and death on the cross to die in our place and bring the opportunity for us to know Him as Lord and Saviour in our lives.
Easter reminds us of the darkness of Good Friday but the ultimate brightness, joy, salvation and peace that Easter Sunday can bring into our lives.
