He told them, “The harvest is plentiful,
BUT the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
This seems like a verse we could think about in the fall BUY since it is spring time we need to make sure we are planting seeds of love and grace all around us so that when fall comes there will be something to harvest.

“The eye is the lamp of the body.
If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.
BUT if your eyes are unhealthy,
your whole body will be full of darkness.
If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
This reminds me of a children's song "Oh, be carful little eyes what you see, for the Father up above is looking down in love. Oh be careful little eyes what you see." Our eyes are a gateway to our heart we need to pay attention what we are exposing them to.

For you know that it was not with perishable things
such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors,
BUT with the precious blood of Christ,
a lamb without blemish or defect.
1 Peter 1:18-19
Think about this today and Thank your Heavenly Father.
Which is easier: to say to this paralyzed man,
‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say,
‘Get up, take your mat and walk’?
BUT I want you to know that
the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.”
So he said to the man,
“I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”
My heart over flows when I hear of someone's heart being healed. Don't get me wrong when Jesus chooses to heal someone's body it is wonderful. BUT to me it's the works of the heart that get me excited. It is not something we can see like a healed leg. It's something we have to surrender and then tell the world about.

The Pharisees and the teachers of the law
were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus,
so they watched him closely
to see if he would heal on the Sabbath.
BUT Jesus knew what they were thinking
and said to the man with the shriveled hand,
“Get up and stand in front of everyone.”
So he got up and stood there.
I am so glad I don't have to get caught up in rules and religious laws!
Thank you Jesus for your never ending or conditional healing and love!

“You are the salt of the earth.
BUT if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?
It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
Salt add flavor and help preserve. Do you had flavor to your world? Do you help preserve others?

BUT store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
This is a perfect follow up to yesterday.
Treasures in Heaven to me is showing kindness and love to others.
