"The Devil made me do it!" was a funny line from Flip Wilson, comedian from the 1970's. Our Gospel lesson from Sunday was the temptation of Jesus as found in Matthew, Chapter 4. I referenced an acronym I invite you to think about this week. For your own spiritual and everyday life, when you are tempted H.A.L.T.
Then ask yourself, am I Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. If you are any of these four, stop, turn back to the Word of God, Jesus, and begin again. Thanks be to God!
TOP THREE THINGS TO KNOW FOR THE BEGINING OF MARCH:
1) Tonight, March 1, 6 p.m. Soup Supper and 7 p.m. short worship "experience" at Faith Lutheran Church
2) Wheeler Elementary school requests Kleenex tissues and disinfect wipes. Please drop in the box in the lobby/narthex and we will get them to the school. Also, we will soon offer food for their needy families before spring break. Please consider donating directly a gift to help this effort. You may do so in the electronic giving or writing in the memo line of your check. Thank you in advance.
3) Daylight Savings Time, coming up quickly, we will "spring forward" March 12th.
God be with you until we meet again!
