Sunday Reflection 19/02/2017

Everyone of us who have put together flat pack furniture will know that without the direction booklet you are completely lost! This is the same for us in our spiritual life, the only way to deal with an especially daunting task or difficult relationship is by studying the directions in God’s Word. This is especially important when it comes to loving those who hurt us. We live in a society of raw power: the one with the strongest fists or the most guns wins. Instead of the God’s golden rule to, ‘love your enemies …….’ Martin Luther King, Jr. developed the practice of non-violence as a means of effective protest. He believed Jesus' words were meant to be taken literally and tried to put them into practice in his fight for Civil Rights.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King
