    I sometimes get carried away in the world and before I turned back to God it was easy to labour in a worldly way sinning and not loving my neighbour, we must always strive to labour in the Lord for most worldly labour is vanity where as labour in the Lord is everlasting. Think of the labour of love God did for us when he took up the cross for our sins, fasting for 40 days and nights healing and loving each and everyone of us hallelujah Praise the Lord in Jesus name Amen.
