Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic woman who volunteered to work as health inspector in the Warsaw Ghetto in order to smuggle out children. She rescued 2,500 children from the Nazis but was eventually discovered and severely tortured. She managed to escape and live until 2008. In 2007, she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, but the committee awarded the prize to Al Gore for making a movie about “man made climate change.” Two years later, President Barack Obama who advocates for the murder of millions of children was awarded the Nobel Peace prize. In a letter to the Polish parliament, Irena Sendler wrote, “Every child saved with my help is the justification of my existence on this Earth, and not a title to glory.”
May we fight the evil of our age with as much courage and humility as this amazing woman. http://ift.tt/1eXMoPd
A vertical forest is expected to be completed this year in Milan. There are two tower apartment complexes which contain a total of 400 residential units. The facade of the buildings will be covered with 730 trees, 5,000 shrubs, and 11,000 perennial plants. It is expected to have the same ecological impact as 10,000 square meters of forest.
Aside from fighting smog and producing oxygen, the foliage is expected to provide insulation to the residential units.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16, NKJ)
When God sent His Son to earth, He opened the door of salvation to whoever would believe. That means anyone can become a child of His and have everlasting life! Isn’t it good that He didn’t just come to save certain kinds of people? Aren’t you glad He doesn’t have a bunch of rules and conditions for salvation?
Before Jesus came, people had to observe many laws in order to be holy enough to go into God’s temple. They were constantly performing sacrifices to pay for their sins just so they could be around the presence of God. Even then, their sins were only covered up. They were still there. But when Jesus came, He was the final sacrifice. His blood doesn’t just cover our sins; it washes them away! Now, instead of going to the temple to be near God, the Bible says we are the temple, and He chooses to live inside of us!
Today, thank God for His mercy and for extending the gift of salvation to whoever believes in Him.
