Wait for it, wait for it. Wait. Patience is a virtue we are told, but It's a virtue that is won over time and through adversity. Seems like all we are doing recently is waiting, waiting for the pandemic to pass, waiting to return to work, waiting for our favorite activities to resume. How can we wait patiently, How can we be faithful as we wait.
That first Easter when people woke up that morning they had no Idea what was in store for them. The early followers of Jesus were faced with Grief, Fear, and Doubt. This Sunday would change everything. It would change Grief to Hope. It would change Fear to Peace. It would change Doubt to Faith. What are you facing today?
Are you rich? The New Testament talks about money and wealth A LOT. How we handle our resources shows the authenticity of our faith. In a world that judges success and security based on the balances of your accounts, how can we approach wealth in a way that honors God and strengthens our faith? James has some very direct words for those of us who are rich.
