be CHRIST-like (be loving, devoted to God's way, holy, righteous, caring, friendly, have integrity, show wisdom in all things with all people, witness to as many as you can, be God's witness in your walk, be the light in a dark world, lead humbly, repent often, pray without ceasing, imitate JESUS!)
Isaiah 66:9.. God's promise. My Bible says the reverse: "Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?" says your God. The pain comes first, as if it must come first and not so much that birth or something good, always follows pain. A message of hope either way but the painted sign is a bit softer and more hopeful. Fitting.
