A reflection on commendation

Reflections for the day

Luke 21:1-4

The Widow’s Offering

As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,

A reflection on commendation

 Heavenly Father,

Thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate Father, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. Thou love for Mankind is one that allows all to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a  mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. Thou love for Mankind is one that allows a love for thou to spill over into a relationship, and thou love for Mankind is one that allows all to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that during thou ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was able to see in a way that was clear a good deed of another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a good deed of another is one that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, acknowledged in a way that was public. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that all should “not hold back good from those to whom it is owing, when it happens to be in the power of your hand to do it.”

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that some feel that an effort goes unnoticed by another. We acknowledge that there are some who feel an effort is one that is not appreciated, and we acknowledge that there are some who feel an effort for another is taken for granted. We acknowledge that there are some who feel unable to live up to an expectation of another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou art a loving Father and that thou loves each and everyone of us, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou with a worry, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou with a concern always.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures teach Mankind to treat another with a kindness. We are able to see in a way that is clear that a word of kindness to another, and a word that can be described as a commendation to another, is one that is able to uplift another in a way that can be described as spiritual. We are able to see in a way that is clear that for many in the giving of a word of kindness, and in the giving of a word of commendation, that there is an experience that can be described as a feeling of joy and a feeling of contentment.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide Mankind to seek out all that is good in another, and we ask thou to guide Mankind to acknowledge all that is good in another.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we commend to thou the good works of those who oversee and the good works of those who contribute to what is described as a foodbank. We are able to see in a way that is clear that those who are in receipt of food from a foodbank are thankful, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that for some it is a means of avoiding what can be described as impoverishment.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will reflect carefully upon an action, and we hope and we pray that many will do what is seen to be good, and we hope and we pray that Mankind is able to acknowledge a time when a good deed has been done.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that is spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for Mankind in order to save Mankind from all sins, and to show all thou way to thou, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    A smile and a comment to a passer-by who is a complete stranger can make quite a difference to that person. Just conveying that message of goodwill may uplift them. Charitable giving is fine but other gestures of good faith may well assist them.
