GOLDEN CORNER

The Texas floods-that's the story that has dominated the news this week. Most of us cannot imagine the horrific experiences our neighbors to the south have been through. When I get up each morning and put my feet on the floor, I want to say, Thank you, Lord, for dry carpet! and, I have been amazed at the outpouring of support from all over the nation. One thing we can be thankful for is that Harvey has taken the focus off of who has been unmasked and who did it? And, we've heard less about Russia, collusion, and that sort of thing. It would be a good thing if all of us could help in some way-either by individual contributions, or through the congregation of which we are a part. The apostle Paul taught in II Corinthians eight "that there may be an equality." In other words, it is possible that next time we possibly could be on the receiving end. All this teaches that "one's life does not consist in the abundance of things he possesses." It's bad for one to lose his house and belongings. What's worse is for him to lose his life (as many have in the recent flood).  But, worst of all is for a person to lose his soul! Let us pray for the people of the Houston area and do what we can to help!
