I'm reading "The Hole in our Gospel" by Richard Stearns, the President of World Vision. Based on Matthew 25, when we care for the poor, the sick, the imprisoned, and the vulnerable we are actually caring for Christ Himself. "If we truly love God, we will express it by loving our neighbors, and when we truly love our neighbors, it expresses our love for God." Without compassion and justice shown to the poor, there is a hole in our Gospel. It's a powerful book!!
I have been thinking a lot about it. For this month I've chosen Micah 6:8 to memorize and meditate on. I don't want to have a hole in my Gospel!

Lovely page! Like the design - circle with a vertical strip down the middle. Good color choices. Fabulous verse!!! That is one that is close to my heart. The book sounds interesting - I'll look into that. Thanks for sharing it all. Page is nicely done. TFS
