In Reference to the sermon: 22 January 1995 - THE JOY OF THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH
You’re welcome, and thank you for your comments.
If we follow what you are saying about us receiving a blessing by blessing others, we also need to understand that if we knowingly exclude any aspect of God’s creation, we also lose a portion of our blessing, for as you pointed out, we have limited the fruit of the spirit to some humans, or non-humans, or to the environment in which we all live.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
