PSALM 136 - Love Forever 17 Mar 2020

The song's refrain is: "for his faithful love endures for ever."

I am Called

I am called to imitate God's faithful love. Frequently I am impatient with people around. What memorable things am I doing in my life? Which actions in my life would bring others to praise God?

Example

Other people may look:
1. if I care for Millet
2. if I am faithful in little things
3. if I care for peace
Fortunately no-one expects me to be perfect. I fail regularly.
