We’ve made it half-way through the month! Can you believe it?! As you guys know, I’ve been reading through the Bible chronologically. I’ll tell you, reading through some of the dysfunction in those OT families, really makes me appreciate my own all the more. Every kind of sin imaginable is represented, and yet, the beauty is God’s continued faithfulness to forgive. He looks on the heart and sees that some of these men and women of faith really did want to please Him… they, like us, were human and made mistakes.
God doesn’t expect us to be perfect. He knows that we cannot achiever perfection. What He is seeking is men and women who will seek His face, who will earnestly seek His will. That’s why He was able to use those people in the OT with rap sheets a mile long… and that’s why He’s able to use us today. His grace is sufficient, and His way is right.
I hope your journey has been one of many discoveries so far, and I hope you’re continuing to press on toward the prize. One foot in front of the other, guys. Every step in the right direction puts us one step closer to better health.
