John on construction site couldn’t find “Toenails”
John, Pat and Chris remember a time when they were working on building projects for ministry and the guys had some fun with John. John did not know much about construction at that time and openly says, he still doesn’t know that much today. John’s brothers in the Lord thought they would have some fun with him by sending him to find “toe nails” what he thought was as a special nail, based on what they were telling him. When in reality a toe nail is a way to strike a nail at a 45 degree angle to connect to pieces of wood. The guys enjoyed a good laugh when John came back saying he couldn’t find any “toe nails”. Enjoy this humor moment.
Justice Belongs to God
John, Pat, Chris share about trusting ourselves to the one who judges justly. They share how often times because of hurt, suffering, and injustices we can be tempted to seek out our own justice however, Jesus encourages us in a parable in Luke 18:1-8 how we are to cry out and pray to God for justice. They go on to share personal experiences where instead of taking measures into their own hands they sought for the Justice of God. No matter what you are facing today, remember you can trust God for justice. He is the Great Judge. He judges on the highest court and is the only one who is actually qualified to exact the fairest of justice.
Fear of the Lord; Refuge for the Family,
In this moment of wisdom, found in Proverbs 14:26-27 , “He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge.” John shares how parents can provide a refuge for their children by fearing the Lord and leading by example.
