Top Ten List

Scripture reading

But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control against such things there is no law.

–Galatians 5:22-23

Thought of the Day

I was looking for something on the World Wide Web yesterday and saw an article on Yahoo about Earth Day. The title of the article grabbed me. It was “Ten things you can do to save the world in one day”. Here are some of the things. Remove yourself from junk mail lists. Over 100 million trees a year are cut down just for junk mail. Changing to fluorescent light bulbs at your home will make a big difference. Using energy efficient appliances also helps. Eating organic produce is good. Walking instead of driving and recycling made the list of course. It was a pretty good list.

I instantly thought of changing direction a bit and coming up with a list of ten things each of us could do to change the world. Here it is.

Love, be joyous, promote peace, have patience, show kindness and goodness, be faithful, be gentle, be in control, and always forgive.

This is my list. Well, actually my man Paul came up with it. I did add forgiveness so I guess it is our list. Why don’t you come up with your own and then try to follow it?


Lord, Help me to see and treat others as You do. Amen.
