Saturday morning at St Hilda’s Primary School, in the Surrender room, when my eyes were closed in prayer, I saw an incomplete, not a good looking jar, rough and coarse on the outside. Nothing to look at. Then I heard The Lord say: "Man look at the outward appearances, but I look at the heart. Do not look to man for acclamation. It is not important how man look at you. Their comments are not important. My approval is your reward. Many things you have done do not seem significant to men. No one praised you or gave you a pat on the back. Like the jar, men turn their eyes away from you but I look at your heart. I am the rewarder of your faith. The jar you saw is unfinished, I am not done with it yet."

As services draw to a close at St Hilda’s Primary School, the Marshalls would like to thank you for your patience, understanding and co-operation.
The bigger space at the primary school has made parking easier, but your thoughtful attitude has made marshalling a breeze...

When I first became a Christian, and for a long time after that, I did not really know the meaning of body life and how to love, honour, appreciate and encourage others in their work or ministries. The little understanding I had of body life was mainly in the head.
It was still mainly “my” ministry, my team or group, my co-workers and so on. The competitive spirit which I learned in the world and in working life was still very much in me.
But we should rejoice to see others prospering and succeeding in the work of God and for God to bless them mightily, through our appreciation and encouragement. Indeed, the Bible repeatedly admonishes us: “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
