Golden Valley Christian Church



A story is told about a man walking through his pumpkin patch. He observed how the small vines could produce such large, beautiful fruit. A large oak tree was close by, and the gentleman sat down under the tree. He marveled at the strange twists of nature, with the large pumpkins on such small vines, and the tiny acorns on such a large tree. He thought, "God really messed up when he created these two plants." Just then, one of the tiny acorns hit the top of his head. Quickly reversing his previous thought, he said, "Thank you, Lord, for wisdom better than mine." We should always acknowledge that God's wisdom is far superior to ours.


We welcomed Bro. Tim back from his vacation. The message was entitled "One Day at a Time," using scripture from Matthew 6:31-34. Time is irreplaceable, and how we use it is vital, especially how we use it for God. We should be thankful for each new day that God gives us and start each morning with prayers and thanksgiving. If you have something important to do, such as a decision to live for Jesus, do it now. None of us know when we will run out of our time on earth.


The Bible challenge question: Why are we to entertain strangers? (Heb. 13:2)
