Day 14

‘Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth’              1 Corinthians 1:26

God isn’t just interested in people who are powerful or clever or important – he loves all of us in our ordinary lives, and he calls each of us to our own special path in life and gives us the gifts we need to walk it.

Loving God is an ordinary part of our ordinary lives, but some people find it extraordinary; some people might even make fun of us. The trick is to show people that loving God is not extraordinary or ridiculous, but a very normal part of life!

‘Lord God, you love me just as I am. Help me to show other people how much I love you in my normal daily routine. Please protect those Christians around the world who cannot do this and let them know that we will do whatever we can to help them. Amen.’

Mary and Joseph have travelled on their own special path from Bishopstone to Aylesbury but will head back into the parish soon.
