Daily Word Of God

Matthew 13:16-17

Jsus said to his disciples: ‘Happy are your eyes because they see, your ears because they hear! I tell you solemnly, many prophets and holy men longed to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

  • The secular and materialistic world is losing its sense of the value to care and love for the elderly in our family and society. Our preoccupation is often sadly on how to look younger, live longer, become richer and other secular attractions.


  • Grandparents and the elderly have much experiences and wisdom in life, even as they may not be ‘perfect’; who is? Do we show respect, love and care for them?
