Grace Lutheran Church Mission Statement - A Worship Center preparing God's People Through God's Word To Share His Message of Hope, Love and Peace To All. Greetings
GENEROSITY THOUGHT: Nov. 19: Proper 28 Matthew 25:30 “And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness.” Why did the worthless servant act the way he did? Because of what he believed about the Master. He didn’t trust or love the Master – and so his actions did not demonstrate love and trust, but rather hate and mistrust. It’s the same with us, but in reverse: since we know our Lord God to be faithful and kind, we desire to serve Him and render faithful service with what He has given us.
