    You Make a Difference

    Kat Yu
    *You Make A Difference

    1 Corinthians 13:4-7 GW
    Love is patient. Love is kind. Love isn’t jealous. It doesn’t sing its own praises. It isn’t arrogant. It isn’t rude. It doesn’t think about itself. It isn’t irritable. It doesn’t keep track of wrongs. It isn’t happy when injustice is done, but it is happy with the truth. Love never stops being patient, never stops believing, never stops hoping, never gives up.
    哥林多前書 13章4-7節 (CUV)

    We learn and grow when we lead.

    Luke 2:52 AMP
    And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and men.
    路加福音 2章52節 (NCV)
    耶穌的智慧和身量,以及 神和人對他的喜愛,都不斷增長。

    Your life is an example.

    Proverbs 22:6 NIV
    Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
    箴言 22章6節 (CUV)

    Love never fails.

    1 Peter 4:8 AMP
    Above all, have fervent and unfailing love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins [it overlooks unkindness and unselfishly seeks the best for others].
    彼得前書 4章8節 (NCV)

    Breaking the Cycle

    Pastor Richard Welsh
    *Breaking the cycle*

    God looks beyond the mess

    Luke 15:20-24 TPT
    [20] "So the young son set off for home. From a long distance away, his father saw him coming, dressed as a beggar, and great compassion swelled up in his heart for his son who was returning home. So the father raced out to meet him. He swept him up in his arms, hugged him dearly, and kissed him over and over with tender love. [21] "Then the son said, 'Father, I was wrong. I have sinned against you. I could never deserve to be called your son. Just let me be-' "The father interrupted and said, 'Son, you're home now!' [22] "Turning to his servants, the father said, 'Quick, bring me the best robe, my very own robe, and I will place it on his shoulders. Bring the ring, the seal of sonship, and I will put it on his finger. And bring out the best shoes you can find for my son. [23] Let's prepare a great feast and celebrate. [24] For this beloved son of mine was once dead, but now he's alive again. Once he was lost, but now he is found!' And everyone celebrated with overflowing joy.

    路 加 福 音 15:20-24 CUV
    [20] 於 是 起 來 , 往 他 父 親 那 裡 去 。 相 離 還 遠 , 他 父 親 看 見 , 就 動 了 慈 心 , 跑 去 抱 著 他 的 頸 項 , 連 連 與 他 親 嘴 。 [21] 兒 子 說 : 父 親 ! 我 得 罪 了 天 , 又 得 罪 了 你 ; 從 今 以 後 , 我 不 配 稱 為 你 的 兒 子 。 [22] 父 親 卻 吩 咐 僕 人 說 : 把 那 上 好 的 袍 子 快 拿 出 來 給 他 穿 ; 把 戒 指 戴 在 他 指 頭 上 ; 把 鞋 穿 在 他 腳 上 ; [23] 把 那 肥 牛 犢 牽 來 宰 了 , 我 們 可 以 吃 喝 快 樂 ; [24] 因 為 我 這 個 兒 子 是 死 而 復 活 , 失 而 又 得 的 。 他 們 就 快 樂 起 來 。
