Reading of the month
Bible: 1 Peter 3:8-12

Apparently someone once developed an app to change the wallpaper colour of your phone or tablet based on how you are feeling.
The idea was that your phone could 'read' your face (whether you are smiling or frowning, the angle of your eyehrows, the
creases on your forehead, etc) and then reflect your mood with different colours. Im not sure how good the actual app ended up being !
The point is that our mood shows. And it can affect people around us - our family, friends, classmates, and even our teachers.
Our life has an effect on people, whether for good or bad, and whether we want it or not. Each person is responsible on how they

insult" (1 Peter 3:8-9). Living like this is hard when we are in a mood or feel fed up. So we have to rely on the Holy Spirit to keep
us caring and thoughtful towards others - even when we can't be bothered. We can have a positive effect on everyone we meet,
even if all we do is smile and listen. Lets give our world some bright colours today ! THINK IT OVER.....
