Day 88

Day 88 Reading – Joshua Chapters 22-24

judge

 

And when the Israelites heard that they had built the altar on the border of Canaan at Geliloth near the Jordan on the Israelite side, the whole assembly of Israel gathered at Shiloh to go to war against them.
JOSHUA 22:11-12 NIV

We should be able to identify with this story.  How often we rush to judgement based on what we have seen or heard.  Let it be said that facts should never get in the way of an opinion.

The Israelites didn’t have the facts.  They thought their brothers were rebelling against God. The facts were anything but that.

Calmer heads prevail and before war there is a coming together.

There is an open dialogue.

There is understanding.

We are still trying to learn the lesson . . .

Slow down

Get your facts straight

Don’t rush to judgement

Is there someone or something in your life that needs a second look?

Be careful the conclusions you draw when all the facts are not known.

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
