John, Pat, and Steve share an encouraging and insightful conversation about the continual events happening on Israel’s Southern border with Gaza. When interviewed by CBN, former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, shared concern for an emphasis on a multitude of topics: the de-militarization of Gaza, removal of chemical weapons from Syria’s army, as well as the importance of Israel to bring a significant defeat to Hamas which would stop other organizations from bringing attacks.
In addition, Ambassador Oren shares some insightful truth that Hamas doesn’t necessarily have a military strategy as they do a media strategy. Continually, images are being shown of Israelis fighting, while on the other side, it is continually images of the Palestinians being killed. For those not personally present in the conflict, viewers are at the mercy of what media is presenting. Currently, fighting is still occurring in other parts of Iraq, Baghdad in particular. While the deaths in Baghdad are not headline news, if Israel were to cause deaths, it would make front page news. It is important to remember that God values life regardless of what nationality.
John, Pat, and Steve have an encouraging conversation about how to live a blessed life. Many people want more in life, while not being grateful with what they already have. For those who have a job, who have a family, it’s an important perspective to remember the many that do not have work or unable to have children. God looks for those He can bless. He also wants to give blessings to those that He knows won’t leave Him in the blessings. It is important, as the church, to seek the heart of God, not the hand of God. We all must give an account of how we have managed all that has been entrusted to us in this life. True riches are not in this life, but in the life to come, with Jesus. Be encouraged as you learn how to manage life to the eyes of One, how to be faithful with what has been entrusted, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: managing, eternity, favor of God, and faith.
