Thought for Today
“During his reign, King Frederick William III of Prussia [1770-1840] found himself in trouble. Wars had been costly, and in trying to build the nation, he was seriously short of finances. He couldn't disappoint his people, and to capitulate to the enemy was unthinkable.
After careful reflection, he decided to ask the women of Prussia to bring their jewellery of gold and silver to be melted down for their country. For each ornament received, he determined to exchange a decoration of bronze or iron as a symbol of his gratitude. Each decoration would be inscribed, "I gave gold for iron, 18l3."
The response was overwhelming. Even more important, these women prized their gifts from the king more highly than their former jewellery. The reason, of course, is clear. The decorations were proof that they had sacrificed for their king. Indeed, it became unfashionable to wear jewellery, and thus was established the Order of the Iron Cross. Members wore no ornaments except a cross of iron for all to see.
When Christians come to their King, they too exchange the flourishes of their former life for a cross.”

Word from The Bible for Today
"Through Christ, God made peace between us and himself, and God gave us the work of telling everyone about the peace we can have with him. God was in Christ, making peace between the world and himself. In Christ, God did not hold the world guilty of its sins. And he gave us this message of peace."
