What Happens When We Choose Government Over God?
Greg and John share about the most recent elections and how the country is divided on their choice on who would lead our nation. They discussed what happened to the Israelites when in 1 Samuel 8, the Israelites chose a King, a form of government, instead of choosing God. The Lord was quick to tell Samuel the people were not rejecting Samuel they were rejecting Him. This is what happens when people choose the government to do and supply all of their needs instead of trusting God. When they do choose government over God just like the Israelites, it comes at a huge price. As believers we need to honor our President and allow God to do what He wants to do and honoring what Americans have asked for. As believers, no need to panic, we can relax and love our brothers and sisters in God. Some other items spoken about were United Nations Agenda 21; and FDA shutting down SunLand
Don’t Bite Your Tongue, When it Comes to Expressing Love
In this moment of Wisdom found in Proverbs 27:5, “Better is an open rebuke than hidden love.” Greg shares how so many people assume that others know they love them and are shocked when someone challenges them or expresses to them that they don’t feel they are loved by them. Many fathers that work hard bringing provision home for their families feel they are loving on their children while at the same time placing little or no effort in pronouncing the words to their children, “I love you.” Children who crave love from their parents and especially from their father’s, if they feel unloved will go to extremes to get a reaction from their father’s which ends with open rebukes coming from them. Often times, this leaves the father confused because he doesn’t understand that his children want to know or feel that their father notices them; that they matter and that they are loved by him.
