Can We Just Cover It Up?

We have seen many examples in the last couple weeks of policemen helping people in their communities, and while it is great to see many policemen that appear to have a good heart, it doesn't negate the main problem: a lack of justice. This is the root issue in our country, and it goes from the very top of our government down to the heart of every individual. We judge and condemn based on politics or wealth or race; we don't seek out the truth behind the rhetoric; we don't show humility and mercy to our fellow man or try to do what is truly just or fair, even when it hurts. We don't repent of our sins; we just try to cover them up.

Seasons of Waiting

There are seasons in our life where it seems that everything has come to a standstill. We have not been given opportunities for ministry. We have not received any responsibilities. It seems that we have nothing to occupy our time. What do we do when these seasons come, especially in our youth when we have not yet reached the maturity required for ministry?

The young man Joshua was in just such a season in his life as he watched Moses interact with God. He was faced with a decision: to play along side his friends in their youthful pursuits, or to seek something greater.
