  • Reflection for the week commencing Sunday 3rd July: 

    Scripture

    ‘You reap whatever you sow.’ (Galatians 6.7)

    Reflection:

    References to sowing and reaping appear frequently throughout both the Old and New Testaments, and their meaning is perfectly clear, not only to farmers and gardeners, but to everybody. The concept is even used, so I’m told, in business and banking: no profit without investment!

    Here St Paul is talking about the sowing of spiritual ‘seeds’.

    If what we contribute to our community is selfishness, unkindness, negativity and constant criticism of others, these things take hold and spread like weeds.

    If, on the other hand, we ‘sow to the Spirit’(v.8) we harvest the fruit of the Spirit, identified by Paul as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

    We pray for this life enhancing fruit, that it will take deep root both in each of us and in our community.

    Care:

    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
    Now is still a time to care for your neighbour. Please, pick up the phone, speak to them. We are a strong community, a caring community. Together we are getting through this.

    Finally, I encourage you to use these prayers when you get up and when you go to bed:

    A prayer in the morning:

    Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples, ‘I am with you always’. Be with me today, as I offer myself to you. Hear my prayers for others and for myself, and keep me in your care. Amen.

    A prayer in the evening:

    God our Father, by whose mercy the world turns safely into darkness and returns again to light,:we place in your hands our unfinished tasks, our unsolved problems, and our unfulfilled hopes, knowing that only what you bless will prosper. To your love and protection we commit each other and all those we love, knowing that you alone are our sure defender, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Keep safe. Keep well. Keep praying. God bless you. With love, David
