U Matters

I bought a pair of running shoes marked “final price” at a sale. Later that day I stopped by the store and found that they had reduced the price of the shoes in half. When I flew back to Hong Kong (economy class), I watched several people get upgraded to business. They were thrilled and were taking selfies. What about me? I fly that airline often but they picked some less deserving people to upgrade. Not fair!

My sense of fairness was violated by the store and the airline. Sometimes God stretches my concept of fairness. The words of Matthew 20:15 haunt me: “Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me. Or are you envious because I am generous?” Yes, I am envious when God blesses others. Am I the only one?

VBS Sunday Recap  Did your kids miss out on all the action of our VBS EVEREST this summer? Don’t worry, this Sunday, 9 Aug 2015, we'll do a ‘Recap of all the cool stuff we have learned the past 5 Sundays of VBS. All children from 3 to 10 years old are invited and we will have children worship, skits, bible story-telling, games, snacks and science experiments at 9:30AM and 11:00AM. Bring your friends along and register at the Kingdom Kids table, in front of the lower annex. Kids go directly to the lower annex!
VBS for Nepal   The children have so far raised over HK$9000 and this Sunday will be your last chance to support VBS for Nepal!! Please support our children supporting the children in Nepal by visiting the VBS Registration Tent on THE GREEN and purchase the 'ice block' token at $20 per block. The children will use this block to build our very own 'EVEREST mountain’ (placed inside the lower annex) and the more blocks the children have, the higher the mountain and that equates to the monies raised for the people of Nepal. Thank you.
