Love

Dear friend, you are so loved and valued by God. He sees you in the midst of your struggles, and He is right there with you, ready to lift you up and give you strength. Even when you feel weak,
(2 Corinthians 12:9).God’s power is made perfect in weakness.
He promises us that we will face trials, but also assures us,
(John 16:33).He has overcome the world.
During difficult seasons of life, turn to Him in prayer, cast your cares upon Him, and ask for His supernatural peace. Open your heart to receive His overflowing grace and undeserved favor.
(Colossians 3:2) Set your mind on things above, not on earthly worries.
(Romans 8:28).Remember that He works all things together for the good of those who love him.
God can use your story for His glory. You are His beloved child, and nothing can separate you from His love.
(Romans 8:38-39). Be encouraged today! God is your refuge and strength, your ever-present help in times of need (Psalm 46:1).

The Greatest good to the greatest number

The phrase “The greatest good for the greatest number” does not appear verbatim in the Bible. However, there are some related biblical principles and passages:
Seeking the good of others: The Bible encourages us to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:39) and to consider others as more important than ourselves (Philippians 2:3-4).
We are called to do good to all people (Galatians 6:10).
Caring for the needy and marginalized: Scripture calls on us to defend the cause of the fatherless and the widow (Isaiah 1:17), care for the poor and needy (Matthew 25:31-46), and speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 31:8-9).
This involves working for the good of the disadvantaged in society.
Promoting justice:
The Bible emphasizes establishing justice and defending the oppressed (Isaiah 1:17).
Justice involves concern for the wellbeing and fair treatment of all people in a society.
Seeking the welfare of the city: In the Old Testament, the Israelites were encouraged to seek the welfare and prosperity of the cities they lived in, even when in exile (Jeremiah 29:4-7).
Working for the common good of society is what God wants and should truely be a front runner in all our minds as Christians.
