THOUGHTS FOR LIFE January
(Extracts from Francois’ book ‘God Believes in You′)
The mystery is within us and in all that lives, even in the bodies of the small fishes in the sea-pools, the mystery of the being of God.

Elizabeth Goudge.
“Bring me a coin, whose inscription and image does it bear? Return to Caesar what belongs to him and return to God what belongs to him.” Even in his lost state, mankind remains the property of God, Luke 15, Ps.24:1. The thief has no ownership rights; he is only the father of lies.
Jesus is God′s great invitation to the human race: “Return to your Father; be embraced by your Maker!″
