This weeks statement to live by is…
I co-operate with others in work and play.
Jesus gave us a clear example of how we should behave towards each other; in our reading today one of his friends tells us about how we can follow his example.
St. Paul was a follower of Jesus; he wrote a letter to his friends in a place called Ephesus and said the following:
From now on there’s going to be no more telling lies.
You are going to tell the truth instead.
If you get angry with someone,
I want you to try to become friends again
as soon as you can on the same day.
Don’t lose your temper.
Don’t shout at each other.
Don’t call each other names,
And don’t be spiteful!
Remember you have received the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Therefore be friends with each other,
And forgive each other quickly, because God has been quick to forgive you.
The word of the Lord
Thanks be to Go
