A rose for my mother

Arvind Mani, Nadi

A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived 200 miles away.

As he got out of his car, he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sob­bing.

He asked her what was wrong and she replied: “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have 75 cents and a rose costs $2.”

The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.”

He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flow­ers.

As they were leaving, he offered the girl a ride home.

She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to my mother.”

She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a fresh­ly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, cancelled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the 200 miles to his mother’s house.

Christians and Israel

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

With all due respect to Christians who support and marched for Israel, I am baffled as to why because Israel as a nation does not believe in Jesus as the Messiah or the Christ!

The Eastern Gate or Golden Gate in Jerusalem is still shut and the Jews believe that it will open to welcome the true Messiah when He comes.

This means Jesus is not the Mes­siah or Christ!

It is true that our faith and inherit­ance as Christians is rooted in Isra­el, but more so to the Almighty God who chose Israel to be His original light bearers to the world.

For us Gentiles, the Messiah Israel rejected has given us the opportu­nity to become sons and daughters of God and become spiritual Israel when we accept Christ as our Lord and Saviour (Galatians 3:29).

The Christian Church has been appointed God’s light bearers to the world because Israel failed.

And I believe that instead of sup­porting and marching for Israel, Christians should pray for the na­tion to repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

God’s provision

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

God is able to meet our needs even when it seems humanly impossible, but he usually works in response to our faith.

When Jesus returned to Nazareth after performing miracles across the land of Israel, the people who watched him grow up did not see the same level of power displayed.

The problem was the lack of faith in their hearts.

“And he did not many works there because of their unbelief” – Mat­thew 13:58.

Never lose heart because circum­stances seem impossible.

God delights in demonstrating his power on behalf of those who trust in him.

God can rearrange circumstances and obstacles and provide.

Those who fully rely on God will never lack his provision for their needs.

Organic food section

Hassan Ali, Lautoka

I think leading supermarkets throughout Fiji should seriously consider having a section on health food items that are organically grown as a choice for people to stay healthy.

Most food items sold these days are either genetically modified or have been grown using herbicides, insec­ticides and pesticides.

Genetically modified foods (GMOs) contain allergens and toxins which cause disturbances to the liver, kid­neys and the immune system.

The State could step in and offer subsidies so organic food is more af­fordable to as many people as possi­ble because it is more expensive but more tasty, enjoyable and fun) and in this way it could reduce its own health care costs as people become healthy.
