Toosday, Teusday, Tuesday!

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”  John 10:10 (NIV)

Jesus is claiming that He came not only to give us eternal life in Heaven when we die, but also to give us a ‘full’ life right now.

What He meant by a ‘full life’? Some translate this as an ‘abundant life’. I have concluded that a major part of a ‘full life’ is good solid relationships.

Relationships need to be handed over to Him continually by praying for needs, looking to encourage…and especially forgiving. Unforgiveness, nagging, fault finding can truly ‘steal, kill and destroy’ the most precious commodity, a relationship. 

Winnie the Pooh had some insight when he said, “You can’t help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn’t spell it right; but spelling isn’t everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn’t count.”


Heavenly Father, help me to forgive and not criticize or complain when others bother me. Thank You that You accept me when I “misspell Tuesday”, help me to do the same with others. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
