Luke 6:41 (11 Sep 01 priority list?)

11 Sep Luke 6:41 (11 Sep 01 priority list?)

Let’s welcome God this morning by reflecting on this short Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which is based on Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own? Luke 6:41 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “This gospel passage is about hypocrisy and judging others. It’s about having acute awareness of other people’s failings, while ignoring our own. We need to think about that beam in our eye and forget about the splinters we see elsewhere. Dear Jesus, help me to see my faults and find the compassion needed to love my neighbor as you love us.”

Faith Challenge: Let’s all invite one person each week (John 14:6) to join our LIFE Group (>220 ProLife Christians).
* NEW: Let’s reflect on our priority list on 11 Sep 2001…likely closer to God’s priority list for our lives…let’s use the 11 Sep 01 priority list today. [Where were you on 11 Sep 01? Angi, Paige, and me were stationed at Incirlik AB, Turkey.]

Counter-Culture News: LifeSiteNews, American Family Association, Priests for Life
* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images)…#1 cause of death in America. Let’s courageously share ProLife Truth to create social tension for exposing abortion’s unjust peace…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16) and setting the unborn free!
* NEW: About 23% of all pregnancies end in abortion in the United States (about 1.2 million babies per year). Let’s reach out in unconditional love to all those families about to go over the abortion cliff and to those who already went over.
Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas in footnote below.
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, illnesses/injuries, jobs, natural disasters, refugees, addictions, persecuted believers, Peters family (JP in hospital), Stephanie Spader (healthy pregnancy), Adrian Hermosillo (sister Angelica battling cancer)
* NEW: I will attend my 20 yr class reunion tonight and tomorrow. May God not be forgotten in the stories that are told. Please pray for the O’Gorman HS Class of 1989.

Faith Quote: “Out of difficulties grow miracles.” Jean De La Bruyere

Through Christ our Lord,
Phil 4:13

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.’
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, bitterness, being so critical, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ (Blessed Mother Teresa).
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service (Matt 28:19).
