How not to quit #3

Fernando was able to get into the data base so now Tony will be able to get new sponsor letters done which should make those sponsors very happy.

The ten nurses who came brought so much for the dialysis children & everyone had a great time. Pray that one of them will consider accepting a job here.

The staff had a vigilia for an hour with Walt leading worship & Adam ministering.

The nurses with the dialysis children

 

Romans1:21, “Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused” (NLT).

They knew God.                                                                                                                                                   They did not honor God.                                                                                                                                        They did not give thanks to God.                                                                                                                           Their thinking became futile.                                                                                                                                                       Their hearts were darkened.

That means the problem with the human race is not a lack of knowledge. The deeper problem is ignoring the knowledge we already have. I must admit there are times when I am stressed that I forget His marvelous provision over the years.

Paul goes on to spell out what happens when we become indifferent to spiritual truth:

  1. We refuse to glorify God.
  2. We refuse to give thanks to God.

 Spurgeon said, “I cannot say anything much worse of a man than that he is not thankful to those who have been his benefactors; and when you say that he is not thankful to God, you have said about the worst thing you can say of him”.

An unthankful person will never receive from God all that is available to him if he were to acknowledge the blessings of God and give him thanksgiving.
