El optimismo y la salud

¿Habría alguna diferencia si, cuando Jesús sanó a la gente les hubiera elogiado por su optimismo en lugar de su fe? Sabemos que estos dos términos son similares ya que ambos expresan expectativas positivas sobre el futuro, pero hay diferencias parcialmente captadas por el artista que ilustró el folleto de este trimestre de la Escuela Sabática.

Optimism and Health

Would it make a difference to us if, when Jesus healed people, he commended them on their optimism rather than their faith? We know these two terms are similar in that they both express positive expectations about the future; but there are differences partially captured by the artist for this Sabbath School quarterly. The figure for lesson six on Faith and Healing appears to be in thoughtful meditation or prayer. The open palms and serene expression indicate a receptive spirit and acceptance of God’s will. The figure for lesson eleven on Optimism and Healing is quite a contrast.

El fruto de la bondad

Mi marido y yo vivimos en la región del Valle de Napa, en el norte de California, conocida por sus viñedos. Cada año nos deleitamos en ver los viñedos recuperarse de la poda con el nuevo crecimiento, y que más tarde se adornan con los colores del otoño. Siempre hay gran preocupación entre los viticultores en relación con la producción de las viñas "este año". Trabajan diligentemente para dar tener condiciones favorables a la producción de uvas de calidad.

The Fruit of Kindness

My husband and I live in the Napa Valley region of northern California, renowned for its vineyards. Every year we revel in watching the vineyards recover from pruning with new growth that will later adorn the Fall with lavish color.
