Day 90

Today’s Reading – Judges Chapters 3-5
So the land had peace for forty years, until Othniel son of Kenaz died.  Judges 3:11
Until . . .

That is the cycle we are now in . . . until . . .

Until what?

We had it so good until we forgot why . . .

and then we did things our way . . .

Until Othniel . . . but then . . .

Until Deborah . . . but then . . .

Until . . .

Get used to it we are stuck in this cycle.

It takes some pretty rough and tumble, get the job done, leaders to gain the attention of these folks.

You would think they would have learned by now.

Then again you would think we would have learned by now and yet here we are living in our own world of sin and rebellion. Perhaps we need our own Canaanites pounding on our doors to wake us up and realize that God’s way is the best.

That would work for a while, but then . . .

Until tomorrow . . .

Tomorrow’s Reading: Judges Chapters 6-9

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.
