A Fruitful Time at Cell

We had a "fruitful" time at cell on Friday. We discussed about "worry". The bible text was taken from Matthew 6: 25-34. We seemed to worry about tomorrow's troubles... and who by worrying can add a single hour to our lives? (Matt 6:27). But then we humans tend to worry, even when we have God on our side, worry seemed to creep into minds and dominate all of our thoughts. The bible says in 1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him for he cares for you".

And I love this passage taken from Philippians 4:8&9
Finally my brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

So instead of worrying, tell God about your situation and think only about the good things. Let God be Lord in your life, trust in Him to take care of your situation. God will certainly see you through good and bad times in your life, only if you allow Him to take control of your life.

So anyway, after our cell lesson, we had a time of fellowship.. with food of course. We had the usual fried noodles, sandwiches and this time we had 4 different kinds of fruits - Durians, mangosteen, rambutan and guava. Matthew brought a 2.5l bottle of L&P carbonated drink from New Zealand. It taste like lemon with lemon grass.

(Note to Ruth: There are lots of durian this season and they are really,really delicious. Wish you were here, so that we can feast on them. If you ever think of visiting us, please come during the durian season.)
