“You have heard that it was said,
‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies
and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven.
He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good,
and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
~ Matthew 5:43-45 (NIV)~

The New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary reports no tornado despite much damage in their area. With all the tornadoes yesterday, God surely protected us. It could have been much worse in SE Louisiana yesterday. As items for tornado relief are delivered to Petal, MS today, we have a more local need to address. LA Baptist Disaster Relief teams will be “on the ground” doing damage assessment and giving the service of chaplains in eastern New Orleans today. Check back tomorrow to learn of new needs. Thank God for protecting the people during the seven tornadoes. No lives were lost.

as working for the Lord,
not for human masters.
