From the Minister


Thought for the Day Tuesday 5th May


The daily reading for today has taken me to the well known story of Samson. Early in the story you read this verse: “His father and mother did not know that this was from the Lord”. Samson has chosen a course of action that his parents do not approve of. They try to talk him out of it. When they cannot persuade him they go along with him.

Sometimes it is difficult to see, especially in the action of others, that what we perceive to be wrong, or that we disapprove of, is the Lord at work.

It is only in retrospect that Samson’s parents can see the Lord’s hand at work.

Let us be slow to criticise. Let us look to see if we can perceive the hand of the Lord at work.
