This episode of “Good News for Today” is about God’s fatherhood. Are we really supposed to not call anyone “father” except God? That’s what Jesus tells us, but really? What did he really mean by that? Let’s put it into context of the whole Gospel reading, Matthew 23:1-12, and discuss how it means we’re being called to show others what God the Father is like. But how can we do that well when we don’t know, really know, the compassion, gentleness, and affirmation of the Father? If you see God the Father as The Punisher, The Disciplinarian, The Absent Dad, or The Abuser, here’s the key to experiencing the Wonderfully Loving Daddy that he really is.

Terry and Ralph share Good News for Today on how important YOU are to the plans of Jesus. You can make a big difference, but not alone. Using Matthew 16:13-19, the Gospel reading for the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter, here’s the key to changing the world to make it a better place.

Who is hardest for you to forgive? Jesus said in Matthew 6:14-15 that if we do not forgive, the Heavenly Father cannot forgive us. Here’s the secret to forgiving those unforgivable troublemaker, heartbreaker evildoers who have hurt you so much.

Mark 7:24-30 tells us that Jesus in you is the one who prays for others when you intercede for them. Therefore, do not worry about whether or not you will be effective if people ask you to pray for them.

Mark 7:14-23 tells us: Do not worry! Here’s how to let God be in control of your life instead of worry and fear. We constantly have bad things hitting us from the outside, and it’s how we react to them that matters. You have Christ in you. Learn how to rely on him when you feel like worrying! You will find blessings disguised as problems.
