*NEW* Stewardship Reflection
6th Sunday of Easter - May 21, 2017
“For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that be God’s will, than for doing evil.” 1 Peter 3:17
The old line says “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” Many of us are diligent in our planning, making sure things are progressing smoothly, then disaster strikes, we don’t get the result that was intended. An unforeseen problem arises. Many times we may respond negatively. Why me? I did everything right! Here’s the thing – God has a different and better plan in store for you.
